Cattle Drive

Today is the start of the Reno Rodeo. Every year there is a cattle drive and it comes through town on the way to the rodeo grounds. My boss is a huge rodeo fan and so am I and she asked if I would go with her to watch the drive. In all the years that I have enjoyed the rodeo, I have never went to watch the cattle drive before. I did have a ton of wonders going through my head on how they keep the cattle from straying off. It was a good experience and I am glad that I did it.

Here they come! It was a trip to see.

This lady was hitting on the cowboy. He was telling her to go to the rodeo grounds to have lunch with him!
Beautiful horse.

To keep the cows from straying, horses surrounded all of them from the front to the back.
Along the sides the horses are as tight as they can be. It looks like it would be so fun! I so miss having a horse and riding horses.
In the back were the little carriages.

It was a super quick ordeal once they got out of the hills. I am definitely glad that I got to see it though. While waiting for it, I got a call from a close friend that offered me box tickets for next week. I love this time of year. I love the warm weather and all the fun activities.

Those are some really cool pictures! I can't get over the cattle goes right through the streets. You just don't see that here. The only time we see a horse is one that has a cop on it!
