I’ve been planning this since last year… after the kids’ rodeo costume contest and our trip over the mountain to Fort Phil Kearney… Caspar Collins Day at Fort Caspar was next on my agenda. They canceled it last year, but held a virtual tour of the Fort at Christmastime which my troopers “attended”.
Finally, the day came, and no cow work got in the way! Since I was nervous some ol’ cow would be in the ditch, or some such emergency, we never told the boys even though they guessed right away what we were up to. An early morning departure had us thinking we were on a wildlife tour. Hawks, one coyote, deer, antelope, chukars, two fox, the normal cattle and horses… all entertained us.
It wasn’t long before we were in the thick of things…
I think they had fun.
