It's just the second day of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, and it's already set a new record.

2235 animals stepped down Main Street in the "All Western Parade."

David Moore, the guy who counts the horses, mules, donkeys, Shetland ponies and zedonks (cross between zebra and a donkey) told NBC 5 that's the most animals ever.

100,000 people watched horses, dancers and marching bands take over the streets of Cowtown. The annual event helps start the first weekend of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, sponsored by NBC 5.

The parade did not include any motorized vehicles.
