If you watch, you will see a real life Wagon Train come in and set up on the fresh grass. They unhitch the team, set up the Chuck Wagons and all their supply's. They dig some pits and get the coals real hot. Soon the smell of homemade biscuits and peach cobbler fill the air with such sweet smells.
You don't have to look too far if your looking to shop for a new hat, a pair of fancy boots and spurs that jingle, or even some leather chaps. There are shops and vendors all around selling their western wares.
We find our selves later resting a while down at the old Train station, surrounded by Cowboys and Cowgirls. I could sit there for hours as the Cowboy Poets tell their old story's and a wild tale or two. I soak in every word and can imagine that I'm living in each story told.
After the Rodeo if your feeling up to staying up late, you can go listen to "Red Steagall and The Boys ",from the Bunkhouse, play some two stepping tunes and spin your Cowgirl around the dance floor.
Then our weekend trip comes to the end of the trail and we pack up, get back in our truck, and travel back home to our corner of the world in Louisiana. Back to The Broke 4 home place where we try to carry on that era in time we love so much....The Cowboy way of life!
Its where the Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering is every year and we have attended fifteen years.
