On Feb. 4, 2011, as a blanket of ice and snow covered Tarrant County, the low temperature was 19 degrees (with a high of 29).

That's what locals call "Stock Show weather."

Fast-forward two years and temperatures are holding steady in the mid-60s -- another near-perfect day for those attending the Fort Worth Stock Show.

Heading into the final week of the 23-day show, the weather has been decidedly "non-Stock Show."

It's been so nice that jeans are being put aside for shorts. Felt hats are giving way to straw.

In some instances, boots are being replaced with sandals.

And in typical Stock Show fashion, some of those sandals come with spurs.
