I've no idea who this guy is... but just thought I'd show you that

we really do have cowboys here, and they really do dress like this!

Les chevaux aussi ont mis leurs habits de fête.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes they do!

Very good images of the parade, Elizabeth.

The bottom pic suggests the thought that Frank might start dressing this way...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Ray!
You have no idea... smile

Precious. I love her braces peeking through - it adds to an innocent look.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Beth! I thought that too!
You truly ARE from the West, Elizabeth!!! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I wouldn't know any different! It never occurred to me, until meeting Frank and other English people on ShutterChance, that the West is sort of a cliche that they don't realize truly exists!

Oh, I love the decorations on the horses for this special parade!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't they pretty!

I'm with Ray, Elizabeth - I can see Frank dressing like that fellow! I think it would suit him
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: If he wouldn't be too self conscious - he just might!
As long as Frank doesn't grow a moustache like that
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm in agreement there, Bill!

I am sure that they are very proud of their costumes .
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No doubt they work hard on them!

What a smile - well captured. The parade goes on.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Very genuine - isn't she! Thank you!
I have a friend who dresses up with her horse. They have matching outfits - for events, of course.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That must be pretty funny!
Your processions are certainly very colourful.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh we know how to do parades over here! smile

Another great set of pictures Elizabeth.

I agree with Lisl and Ray, Frank must be ready for his cowboy phase...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Anne!
Frank is a closet cowboy - but too self conscious to let his flag fly! He does have proper boots... smile

I love there hats and their... ummm .. "underrated" outfits. The cowboy does look exactly the part. Yee haw!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Nothing's "underrated" to rodeo people!
More good stuff from the parade, Ell'....Maybe Ray has a point, the buckles are a problem though, imagine that going through the airport.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Frank!
I do think we need to get you a western shirt... with fringes maybe! smile

Great smiles and outfits that you've captured, perfect for this parade!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Don't know if you've ever been to a proper rodeo, Steven, but there's nothing understated about the outfits! smile

She was the Queen for the day... Ha great smiles and I love the dress up and that cowboy has a nice mustache... smile
Great pictures, it shows that every body had a great time.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yep - and actually, for the year! smile
Thanks, Astrid - it was a really fun day!
Fine dress and decoration!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed, so!
