Today I was driving home and found myself in a situation where I didn't have my camera and needed it. I know, I know: Blog Handbook item 301.87B: A blogger must ALWAYS have his/her camera, blah blah blah. But I made some Steph-magic instead. This is what I saw - I kid you not: So as SOON as I walked in the house, I made another call to my local law enforcement at their non-emergency number:
Me: Hi, this is Stephanie M. I called the other day concerning recyclables?
Sheriff: Yes, I remember. What's the problem?
Me: I was driving north on MN State Rd. 38 at approximately 1030, and have questions regarding an equestrian apprehended during that time at that location. I was not aware that it was against the law to ride a horse along a state road?
Sheriff: No, it is not against the law. What you saw happening was a 10-91H. Our deputy was assisting in a horse round-up (OMG! A real live round-up!!). Unfortunately, two of the horses escaped.
Me: I think I know just the horses you're talking about. Was Bryan Adams singing in the background? If so, I believe you'll find your horses somewhere out west...
Sheriff: Thank you very much for the tip Mrs. M. I'll make sure if those horses are found, you'll be amply rewarded.
Me: No worries, just glad I could help! By the way - is there some sort of speed limit for horses traveling on public roads?
Sheriff: No, not that I'm aware of.
