4th of July Parade
My best friend Marie was out for a week in July. We hadn't seen each other in almost 4 years! The great thing with Marie is we can always pick up where we left off like it's been no time apart. Being at the club a couple times a day to care for Dani we ended up getting sucked into the July 4th parade in Monument. They needed a pooper scooper so we figured...."Why not?"
Marie was a good sport and we had a good time honestly! Horse poop is harder to pick up from the the concrete so I'm thinking for the future a dog scooper and shovel may work better. I'm even contemplating making a little wagon for my Border/Aussie mix to pull in parades. It will be a while before I have the courage to try Dani out in parades so pooper scooping will be my job when I do parades.
Loren rode his trusty Angel, the beautiful buckskin mare. She's solid as a rock and sweet as they come. Many people took off their hats and placed their hands over their hearts at the American flag passed by in the procession.
There were a lot of horses but for the most part this was my view! There was a gorgeous black Percheron I thought was a Friesian at first, and several wagons pulled by teams. The Pikes Peak Rangerettes were out in full costume and were a sight to behold. Very pretty ladies and gorgeous horses!
The Rennaisance festival had several elephats, horses and a camel! Luckily they had their very own pooper scooper though! I think Marie will never forget this fourth of July!
