This roundup and drive attracts cowboys from all over the world who participate in this 4-day event where they roundup the horses from their wintering pasture and drive them back to the Mantle Ranch where they will be sent out to other areas around Montana where they are used for horseback trail rides.
While waiting for the horses to arrive we walked around town and visited the many vendors. We enjoyed listening to the live band, eating good food and people watched (my favorite past-time). I took many photos which pretty much speak for themselves.
We are hanging out in front of the historical Sacajawea Hotel
This looks like fun!
The horses finally arrive being led by these cowboys
There were about 300 horses that are being driven through town.
These horses are beautiful!
They were taken to a pasture on the other side of town where they would be staying the night before moving on the next day
I just LOVE Horses!
And here we are together
After the horse drive we went on a short drive to a nearby river area. It really was a gorgeous day.
I loved this bridge
Lots of Bees and this Pheasant
Some people might think gophers are a pest but I think they are cute!
This little guy was posing for me
And then we stopped by the Three Forks ponds and got to see these Pelicans
I have never seen pelicans in real life before
Last weekend was the perfect weekend. Not only was the weather perfect, but it was Easter, and it was so very nice to get out and enjoy the outdoors! My next post will cover what we did on Easter Sunday, so look for that coming up soon.
