In case you were looking for Romeo...
He was in the inauguration parade with his owner Stephanie.
Stephanie is president of the Georgia Ladies Aside Side Saddle club, and she sent me the following email.
Parade video Click on video library, then parade. We are 24 minutes and 28 seconds into the video. Right behind the bagpipes! You can see me on Romeo!
It was incredible! We had a blast! I was thrilled and honored to be a part of such a historical day! It was a great day for America!
Tuesday was a very long day. I was up at 3 am and to bed at 11. Romeo was kept very entertained for almost eight hours! I hand walked him a lot. He had a lot of hay, apples, and snacks. I was able to take a lot of photos before the parade. We had fun checking out the other horse entries in the Parade. We really enjoyed talking to the Crow Nation as they are from Montana and so am I originally.
I was so proud of Romeo! He behaved flawlessly. He must have known it was his most important ride ever! He is a rock star!
It was very cold. I had so many layers on under my costume! I looked like the blue Good Year blimp! Hey, but I was warm!
Someone told me (I have not watched the whole parade yet) that Michelle Obama only gave three thumbs up to three entries in the parade. And our group was one of them! It was amazing to see the Obamas in the reviewing stand! They were right there looking at us!
I forgot to tell you that we had a sign on the trailer that said Obama Parade Horse on board! So many people on the interstate were waving and taking photos! Even when we stopped for gas people wanted their pictures taken of the sign and Romeo!
Congratulations Stephanie and Romeo !
