The Great American Horse Drive thundered through Maybell Sunday, with 460 horses moving through town. Sombrero Ranch moves the herd over two days, from Brown’s Park to their summer home, a few miles west of Craig. The Craig Press reports that it has been a Moffat County tradition since 1959, and it’s about 60 miles total for the horses. In December, the herd will head back to Brown’s Park, but be transported by trucks and trailers.

There is a reward. Call Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648. You can see the picture of the man standing at a Frisco sign, next to the obviously agitated moose on the KRAI Facebook page, and website.
