Cheyenne Frontier Days - an experience not to be missed! I'm anxiously awaiting the first of 3 monster parades this week, each over an hour long. They start at the capitol, and I think I can see them coming.
In most states, the Governor would be riding in a fancy car. But not in Wyoming! (Sorry I only got a butt shot...)
There are lots and lots of the most beautiful horses I have ever seen - from these giants (Percherons?) -
To this tiny baby pony on the right.
Some had fancy pedicures -
Some needed to go to the beauty shop for a haircut -
And some had just come from there with a fancy hairdo, complete with glitter.
With all these horses, there are bound to be a few "accidents." It used to be a guy following along behind with a shovel. But now -
There's are fancy "pooper scoopers" doing the job.
There were lots of floats in the parade - this one celebrating the last man to be legally hanged in Wyoming.
The Indians had a couple of floats. Why is he texting and not waving?
There were also lots of tractors -
And this cute little train.
Okay, now I need to turn on the recorder. I can never resist a rendition of "Orange Blossom Special" - the national anthem of fiddle players. Love it!
