DeBeque Wild Horse Days

Just returned from Wild Horse Days. If you have never been there, it is quite the experience! A very small town, it is the only Wild Horse Sanctuary City in the United States. During the venue there is a parade (some of the horses are BLM wild horses), vendors, singers, atv poker runs, mud bog racing, dancing in the street at dusk, and of course, BLM wild horses on display. These are not just any wild horses, they have been tamed and were very comfortable around people. You need to watch them interacting with people, it is totally amazing. You would never know they had no contact with humans until about a year ago.

I did very well as a vendor, selling my Mule Ears Grand Canyon original painting, prints, and also got 3 commissions. It may be a very small town, but the people there have huge hearts and make everyone feel welcome.

If you have a vacation planned for next year, DeBeque, Colorado, Wild Horse Days should be one quaint stop on your trip. Maybe I will see you there!!
