Happy Trails to you, until we meet again….

The horses made it the last 25 miles or so today and found themselves back at the ranch mid afternoon.  I’m sure they are happily resting after their 2 day journey.  I can’t tell you how thrilling it was travelling with them yesterday and today.  Total there were about 500 head, all shapes and sizes….but certainly, I had my 12 or so favorites. 🙂

All along the route, people were waiting for the horses to pass by and were either videoing or taking photos.  Especially in the town of Maybell….they basically treated it like a parade with candy for the kids and everything!

We got to cross over a few bridges which was cool.  It’s amazing to watch the cowboys/girls manage the herd to keep them moving alongside the road.  Most of the horses would travel in their little buddy groups the whole way.  Others would get separated….but whinney and whinney until they found each other again.  Once back at the ranch, there was lots of rolling going on and lots of yawning.  I’m sure they will sleep good tonight!  The Sombrero Ranch looks after their horses very well….I was glad to see that.

I went out for a last dinner with my group of friends.  It’s something magical how an experience like this can create such strong friendships in such a short amount of time.  We learned a lot together, had great adventures, and certainly had a lot of laughs!

Morning will come early as I head to the airport in Denver with Maureen and Priscilla…..so goodnight! fbIMG_0791a fbIMG_1828a fbIMG_2099a fbIMG_2367a fbIMG_8755a fbIMG_8950a fbIMG_3162a fbIMG_3326a
