We were on our way out to eat on Saturday night when we spotted this sight at the drive-through window of the former Dairy Queen in Muscle Shoals, Ala., now called Shakers. The rider said he was from nearby Leighton and was visiting family in Muscle Shoals. Not sure if he was on hoof to protest high gas prices, but a bystander observed that a decades-old law on the books in Florence prohibits cars from traveling city streets. If this becomes a trend, Shakers is going to have to change its menu since the man rode off with an ice cream cone — and the horse didn’t get a thing.
Cathy, I’m so glad you got a photo of this! I never thought I would see this sight in Muscle Shoals.
“Ice cream for my men, beer for my horses …”
Hmmm … “Beer for My Horses?” I’d never heard of that until I Googled it and now understand. And all I have to say back is, “Hahahahahahaha. Cute.”
Susan — We were stunned. And still sort of are. Yay for blogs and digital cameras because nobody would believe us otherwise!
Cathy, you must not listen to Country & Western music! I laughed out loud at John’s comment.
You are so right, Evelyn — I don’t know a thing about country and western music — unless “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” counts!
