Paintluver- isn't he?! He was totally chill during the parade too even though he was right behind a fire truck. And whats more...look closely. He's only being ridden in a rope halter, as is the brown next to him! O_O I'm impressed!
Chevaux- Thanks! Sorry about all of the heads in the pictures...its hard not to get them when you're only 4'11! LOL. Those sure are some comfy looking saddles.
RideEveryStride- I'd actually never seen these guys up close before. They are ENORMOUS! It makes all of the drafts that I've been around look puny. The two big guys in front had to have been pushing 18hh if not taller.
I have to be honest, after so many years of the Katy parade I'd sort have gotten bad vibes off of parades. Its fun to ride/drive in that one but I hated seeing the other animals and how they were treated. This parade though was absolutely FANTASTIC and there were some absolutely amazing marching bands, a 15' tall motorized HEB (grocery store chain) shopping cart, 'Pacho Claus', a dancing and singing jewish rabbi (best thing ever...haha), tiny motorized cars, a train with a bunch of disabled kids waving their hearts out, and my favorite, a bunch of motorized wheelchairs that had tank-type wheels which had a bunch of Houston's disabled war veterans cruising down the road!

them are meant to stay till the end.
