Interesting view of the three Crows view over Ford B, with Greasy Grass Hill prominent on the other side of MTC, and Butler ridge showing its fine firing position on the right.
If you spun this around to look up MTC and toward Weir Peaks, you would see that it is nearly impossible that the Crows would have seen Custer come and go due to the higher intervening fingers off the backside of Bouyer's Bluff.

No matter how good you are, you have to get there first...
This shows the 1883 river channel with a modern (1967) USGS map. I approximated the two skirmish lines Jason Pitsch says he found (lines #1 and 2), and am pretty certain about the location of line #3. Vaughn's line is shown as line#4 and is my WAG.
IF (big IF) the area in between line #2 and #3 was covered with thick brush in 1876, it would have been a good place to hide horses. But then we read of line #3 had its back to the timber, and that was where they hid horses. Could the horses have been moved from one area to the other?
I don't know of anyone saying the horses were moved. Comments?
