Ever wonder what a herd of 700 horses look like?

Sorry guys I do not know how to embed the video


From the videographer's description:
"It is hard to realize how many horses there are in a herd of 700, but this should give you an idea! Sombrero brings them right through the town of Maybell CO en route to their spring ranch. I warn you now, it takes 3 minutes for them ALL to come through! This was shot during a part of the annual photography workshop I head that is sponsored by Equine Photographers Network. The footage is unedited, and shot on a Canon 5D."

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

WOW O_o and what amazed me is how well built and well cared for every single one of those animals looked. Are they are ranch horses or something?

Apparently, and you can also pay for the privileged of riding in the round up. I have a new item for my bucket list!

They are all "dude" horses. Sombrero supplies horses and runs many of the horse riding stables in the Rocky Mountains (state parks and national forest lands). They also supply camp horses all the way to WA and AZ. The drafts and draftXs make them a ton of money in the fall packing out elk. Most of the horses are bought at the local Saturday night sale. Trust me, they can be a rather mangy lot.

It makes me sad!

What do they do with them, Where do the old, hurt, lame ones go?
They can't find homes for all of them.
After the summer camps, where do they go?

We all know the answer.
