OK, no lie. We saw this today. Just outside Alamogordo NM on the road which goes back to Las Cruces NM, (where we had just come from yesterday), and is 50 something miles away. We saw a cowboy. Nice Brown felt cowboy hat. Jeans, western shirt. Looked real. Believe he was. Hitchhiking and had a sign like a street corner homeless sign in magic marker on a piece of cardboard that said “need ride to Las Cruces.”
The thing was, the dude had a saddled horse with him. Held by a stirrup in his hand. Fully saddled this horse was. He was hitchhiking with a horse!!! I don’t know these parts, being a transient, but, doesn’t that limit your ride opportunities, the horse? Sure wish we stopped to take a picture. It had no appearance that it was a joke or promo, and this part of the world does not have the audience to do jokes or promos like that.
Cowboy and horse hitchhiking…I love the USA.
