It's the LAW...

Quick! Someone get this woman a club (see below)

Here's your weekend fix of Laws of the Horse (actual laws regarding horses and the community)

A Wyoming community passed this one: "No female shall ride a horse while attired in a bathing suit within the boundaries of Riverton, unless she be escorted by at least two officers of the law or unless she be armed with a club." (A club? Oh yea, that'll work.)

Apparently there were problems, so the good people of Riverton got back together.

They they added an amendment to the original: "The provisions of this statue shall not apply to females weighing less than ninety pounds nor exceeding two hundred pounds."
(hmmm. What do you supposed happened to call for an AMENDMENT? I wish I was at that city council meeting. By the way the Riverton Wyoming motto: "getting things done, behind the scenes" I could not make this up. I'm simply not that funny.)

A misworded ordinance in Wolf Point, Montana: "No horse shall be allowed in public without its owner wearing a halter." (But I look terrible in halter tops!)

A Fort Collins, Colorado Municipal Code: "It is unlawful for any male rider, within the limits of this community, to wink at any female rider with whom he is acquainted." (No winks? Well that takes all the fun out of it, doesn't it?)

Funny, but if you're exceeding 200 pounds please don't wear a bathing suit for any adventure in public.

Missing your horse stories. Can't be because we've had too much rain. Until today, we've just about had none.
