Kaylan Poe, 5, of Needville, wants to be a rancher when he grows up. And even when he's at the Fort Worth Stock Show, where his brother, 12-year-old Kolton, is showing steers and goats, he can't stop thinking about it.
“He got a set of pens and John Deere tractors here last year” to go with his trucks and stock trailers, said his mom, Stephanie. “He’s always got a truck with a trailer on it hauling cattle.”
Kaylan took over a corner of the hallway outside the Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibits Hall Wednesday to lay out his mini ranch on a blanket. It was a warm break from the chill of the cattle barns where his brother was minding his projects.
Kaylan came by his passion naturally, Stephanie Poe said.
“My husband and I are both ag teachers at Needville High School,” she said.
