Notes

Summary:
Sally Watt spends time at Lake Kissimmee State Park with Park Manager Tony Morel. Morel discusses the history of Spanish cattle and horses in Florida. They were brought over in the 1500s when Spanish missions were established in Florida. When the missions were abandoned, the horses and cattle were left to roam free. Early homesteaders in Florida, called Crackers, domesticated the horses and herded the cattle. Thus, the animals became known as Cracker horses and Cracker cattle. Today, Lake Kissimmee State Park has an area set aside to replicate an 1876 cow camp and a dozen Cracker cattle and a few Cracker horses are kept in pens there.
