Tread of Pioneers Museum’s Winter Film Series: Sheep & Cattle Wars

Ride into the “bloody grass” battlefields of the Old West’s longest feud over grazing and water rights and witness the gunfights, court cases, and massacres that gave rise to the classic American contest of cowboys versus sheepmen in this Rocky Mountain PBS Colorado Experience feature. 

Followed by original museum footage filmed near Hayden at Ferry Carpenter’s cattle ranch. Historic audio clips feature the famous cattleman who helped end the sheep and cattle wars in the West.

All films are free to the public, but donations are greatly appreciated.
