Whether you’re into shopping or golfing, horse herds or wrestling, you’re sure to find a lot of fun in the variety of offerings this weekend in Moffat County.

If you’ve never been to Maybell to watch as the Sombrero Ranches horses are driven through town, you’re missing out.

The 800 horses will be led along U.S. Highway 40 on their 60-mile trek from Browns Park to a ranch near Craig.

The horses and cowboys will pass through Maybell sometime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday, and gobs of people like to watch them pass by from Maybell Park and along the sides of the highway.

It’s surely a sight to see. Just don’t forget your camera.

between 10am and 1pm is quite a window to wait for the horse drive. Is there really no better time frame?

You might want to direct that question to the horses.

HAHA, that's funny nimrod! I'll go see if I can do that soon! I just thought in years past there was a different time frame, like between 11-12, but if the horses are going to be lazy this year and can't decide when they want to go through town to impress all the gawkers, I'll just have to deal with it!

Over the winter the horses formed a union. They get more break's now and don't have to move as fast according to their contract. Or???? Maybe they are going to do more "horseing" around this time.
