If you happened to be in downtown Denver yesterday, you might have noticed something unusual...This isn't the normal mid-day traffic on 17th Street...
Don't let the unseasonably warm temperatures fool you--it's Stock Show time!
The National Western Stock Show Parade is the perfect parade for horse lovers.
Oh, there are a few tractors,cars,
Mostly, however, it's horses, horses, horses!
There are big harness horses...
and little harness horses.
Police horses...and cavalry horses.
Horses with fancy tack...and horses with working tack.
Horses with big flags...and (half) horses with big ears.
There's no doubt, the National Western Stock Show Parade is all about horses!
Of course where there's horses, there's also poop...
So every year the last entry in the parade is a fleet of street cleaners!
