Cajun Tails: A Horse Of Course

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“A horse is a horse, of course, of course….”

Carriage Mules
  Maggie loves horses so, I had to tell her about the horses in New Orleans. They’re not really horses though, they are mules. At least the carriages we saw. The mules pull the carriages for the horse drawn carriage rides. At first glance they look like horses, but they’re not. They are mighty. They work very hard in hot & humid conditions pulling tourists around the French Quarter. Some of the rigs are very beautiful along with their animals. The horse ties around town are works of art.

We were transported back in time through the architecture of the buildings in the French Quarter or from the horse ties. A carriage ride seems the norm here. I assured Maggie that lots of dogs are walking about too. Dogs are well represented in New Orleans, but that’s another tail. Maggie’s all ears…. Meanwhile, back to our story, I told Maggie to remember a horse is a horse of course of course, unless it’s a mule. Maggie doesn’t mind if they’re a horse or a mule. She’s happy I’m back home where our morning walks together are cool!

    Guess pulling tourists is still easier than pulling a plough 😉

    Yes! They get to rest in between rides too! :)

    Welcome back ! I missed seeing Maggie’s daily tricks. Did you have a fabulous time in New Orleans? I am so jealous that you were there.
