A Horse With No Name

Reason #568 to love Utah
We still have the Pony Express. And that horse's name is actually Thumper, but I couldn't think of any other horse songs. Except Wildfire and I didn't want to subject anyone to having that in their head all day.
Yup, if you were lucky enough to be driving around town yesterday, you might have actually seen this guy riding his horse down the street delivering the mail.
I just hope someone cleans up the bike lane before the commute this morning. Because you don't want to be trying to brake your 10 speed on that. It might have been nice to be able to use something like to find out the exact horsey route just in case you had important errands to run and didn't want to get backed up behind a Bronco, a Pinto and an Appaloosa.
Please remember, pedestrians, bikes and horse have the right of way at all crosswalks.
I actually think my internet provider is so slow, that when I attach a file to an email, this guy rides out of a barn with a file folder in this satchel.

You can also track this swell historical re-enactment online. How cool would it be for some Indian Casino to ambush one of the riders? And remember, if they make it, so what?

Thanks for NOT putting Wildfire in my head! Damn!

What about the Big & Rich song... Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy?

Know any cowboy's willing to be ridden?

You could use the same format as the "Do you like me?" survey.

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?

I think the Pony Express is a good idea. It seems more reliable than the current mail system. Maybe if we brought it back the price of stamps would go down for once. Or, at least I'd feel better about paying...however much we're paying now for a stamp.
