My wife Tammi was part of the team that manned the Happy Tails Dog Ranch and Sun Pony Ranch float in the Berthoud Day Parade on Saturday June 1, 2013. I don’t have details on all the floats so this is just my photos of them as I walked the parade staging area after photographing the Happy Tails Dog Ranch crew. LOTS of great entries! Not the least of these were the equestrians – LOTS of impressive horses, rigs and riders. The Back Country Horseback folks were particularly well-done I felt.
It was fun to see all the agricultural tools – turned out in high style, looking like new in most cases and amusingly aged when not. I refer to the Jeep tow truck. What a fun vehicle!
Anyway, there’s over a hundred images – they’re hosted at Flickr so you can go there and download the 6Mpx images. (Best my little D40 will do.) If you’d like to use any or all of these images, I’d appreciate a credit of “Photo by FreeRangeLongmont” but it’s not mandatory. Please feel free to use without attribution.
Berthoud’s a great town and has a ton of spirit, I hope folks enjoy these images as much as I did taking them. Berthoud Days will be on my schedule next year for sure.[flickr-gallery mode=”photoset” photoset=”72157633868233511″]
