The license plates on the vehicles have the wrong county numbers on them. In Wyoming the number before the bucking horse indicates the county the car is registered in. For instances the horse trailer has County 3 plates on them. County 3 is in northern Wyoming, while they are based in southern Wyoming which would be either county 2 or county 5.
