Westward Ho Parade - Pendleton Round-up

Stacie and three eldest kids (Josh, Marcus, Jessica), Josiah and Hailey, Mom and Larry, Grandma and Mom's friend, Sharon, all wait for the parade to begin (Michael took the picture). The Westward Ho Parade is a completely non-mechanized parade. Everything is either horse drawn/ridden or by foot. It is wonderfully long and absolutely fascinating! It was so fun watching it with Stacie and the kids.

Michael had the privilege of riding "shotgun" with my Grandpa who drove a chuck wagon through the parade with his halflinger (sp?) horses. It is Michael dream to own a set of halflinger mules to drive.
Here's a couple of pictures of the chuck wagon with Regina following behind on her horse, Feather. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any shots as they were approaching.

After the parade, Grandma enjoyed teaching Hailey how to rock on Mom's front porch.
