Well this is the first Katy Rodeo Parade I've not participated in through the whole four years that I've worked at my barn. Depressing, I know. But apparently it is strongly advised that you do not ride a horse in a parade 5 days after surgery. Pfft.
Since I couldn't ride though, I insisted on going and watching- even if I looked like a pile of horse poo ;) but hey, I had to cheer on my people! It was actually pretty fun to just watch for once, too. It definitely beats trying to keep your horse occupied while at a standstill while you're waiting the 3-4 hours for your turn to start walking xD
Never fear though, next year I will once more take my place in the parade...WITH SOUR! ;D (no seriously. My goal is to drive her in it next year. Crazy right?)
As these guys passed, I couldn't help but wonder what this horse would look like with proper training to disperse that crazily undermuscled, ewed neck.
The 'pretty' pooper scoopers XD
I seriously loved these guy's hats.
How can something so huge look like a toy?! I WANT ONE!
