'Parked' horse was another 'only in Wyoming' experience

May 31, 2017 Ray Finster, Casper


Along the same lines as what Randy Tucker wrote about on May 14, "Things you'll see nowhere else," I remember driving with my dad to pick up some bales of hay when I was a little boy in the 1960s. We lived outside Casper, and we went through Worland on our trip.

I don't remember many details, but I do remember that when we were in Worland we stopped for lunch, and there was a man who rode his horse right down Main Street and left it tied to a parking meter while he went into a store. After he tied the horse to the parking post, he put a nickel into the parking meter. Swear to god.
