Running of the horses
« on: April 25, 2009, 02:24:58 pm »

   Every April, they run horses through Willow Creek and Three Forks, from their winter pasture south of here to their summer pasture a ways further north. Today was my first chance (since moving to Montana) to see the Big Event. They bring the horses right through the middle of Willow Creek, so I didn't have far to walk to see it. Got a drink at the Willow Creek Saloon and Elias joined me as we waited for the herd to come into town. They say there were 350 horses, though it seemed like there were maybe 200-250. They didn't bring them through town at a gallop, as they used to do, but kept them at an easy trot. It was definitely a fun time, though brief. It will be a yearly tradition for me, I think.

I'll take one, too, Shorty--single malt with water, on the rocks.  Woo hoo!  I hope I can shove you aside next year to get a better view!

   The more the merrier! Single malt, coming up. LOL. I'm tall, so I don't mind being pushed to the back.
