Try Shooter's Choice in Alberta, their current Uberti page shows a couple of 1871 Open Tops.

And.................I got one!  ;D Richard/Mason conversion by Uberti, 8" barrel, .38 Special in nickle. Accurate and shoots to the sights, I like the way long barrels handle! Sure wish I could post pics.

There were later drives to the Klondike. I have a small book KLONDIKE CATTLE DRIVE, by Norman Lee. I have a friend who knew Lee in person. 200 head of cattle set out from Clinton along the Telegraph Trail with a full classic western trail drive outfit. At Hazelton they sold their horses and excess kit and herded their cows Northward on foot. Horses were starving, but the cows did well! They reached Takla and loaded the cattles on pre-arranged barges on the lake. Ten minutes later they were wrecked in a sudden storm. The men survived but all cattle drowned. They salvaged 15 carcasses and sold them for enough money to take ship to Seattle. Other similar drives were successful. There was a depression at the time, so the gamble was perceived as justified.

Dirty Dick asked me how many wild horses there were in British Columbia. I had to look it up;

The answer is, about 1,000. This article also has some background on wild horses located in various areas around Canada
I belong to WHOA, Wild Horses of Alberta.  There are several wild horses west of Sundre and Rocky Mountain House.  WHOA is dedicated to preserving them.
