    I wanted to share more rare vintage photo postcards from King Ranch in Kingsville Texas.
    These are of Santa Gertrudis bulls and they are unposted cards from the mid 1940's.
    One of the bull's pictured, is two years old and weights 2000 pounds as per the statement written on the card.

      "The breed name Santa Gertrudis derived from that of an original land grant given in the 1760s to Blas María de la Garza Falcón, who named the area that the King Ranch now occupies "Los Cerros de Santa Gertrudis."
