How we have not gone to the opening parade for the Roundup, I have no idea. So today we remembered and were there in plenty of time to pick a good place on the sidewalk.
Everybody stands for the flags going by. And then sits down again when they’ve passed.
So many horses and cowboys and cowgirls. So much fun. These are the directors of the roundup. There were 8 or so.
I liked she is riding a mule.
All the pretty beadwork on his horse.
Here we finally have the answer to: “Is it possible to transport a horse via pickup truck?”
And also an answer to whether it’s possible to have a full brass band playing from horseback. I edited out the drums. 🙂
A pretty palomino.
More gorgeous beadwork.
And a tiny wagon pulled by a tiny horse.
A beautiful horse. Wouldn’t it be fun to ride in that wagon?
The sign says it’s an 1890’s log sled. Imagine that thing being pulled by horses through the snow. There’s no way to get out of the way in time when it picks up speed downhill. What a job.
This cable car has been retrofitted into public transportation. I would like to drive around town in this thing, it sure beats the regular bus.
Does it make you want to come see the roundup? One of those things everyone needs to do at least once in your life. The last day is Saturday the 19th. I was looking at the website, and tickets are still available.
