Yes, Virginia, everything really is bigger in Texas. Even the malls have outdoor sculptures, trails, and history lessons. In Frisco between Ikea and PetSmart, in the shopping outskirts around Stone Briar Mall, there is a collection of outdoor statues and monuments memorializing the history of cattle drives through the area, from before the 1820's to around 1866.

The posted coordinates should put you near a cowboy camp by a pond at the southern end of the T-shaped series of statues and monuments. Walking northward along the cattle drive trail will take you past several more statues and information signs, to a tall monument with more historical info'. Along the way you should see the location and info' needed to log this find.

One family's visit is described here:

To log your find, upload a photo of yourself near the statue of the cowboy on a horse that is eating grass. For bonus points, get the Frisco water tower and/or one of the tall monuments in the background.

The logging password is the name of Col. Jack Potter's breed of "Texas Cattle" or Texas Longhorns, which was a famous herd lead steer breed, as described on one of the plaques.
