Mounted Posse




The Leon County Sheriff's Office Mounted Posse helped kick off the annual Springtime Tallahassee Parade this past weekend, followed closely by their clean-up crew from the jail.

I suppose they are just dressed like prisoners? Thanks for your nice comment on Pimmie, he was indeed a member of the family.

I believe I told you before that the lady in the front right lives in our neighborhood. Hey, how about that thunderboomer we received at 2:30 this morning!

Are those real prisoners? If so I wonder if they volunteered.

I have seen gangs walking along the highways that look like this last photo.

Great looking horses. Many PDs are getting rid of them for cost cutting measures. Wonderful series.

Mounted posses seem to be parade favorites. But I've never seen anything like that clean-up crew! Heh, heh. I wonder if they had a choice. If so, they chose a rather crappy job! :-)

Great looking posse! Glad to see Florida making use of inmates. We have lots of inmate work crews in our area.

My very favorite part of any parade are the horses.

I don't think they would let people from jail walk in a parade here. It's a nice idea though!

I love a parade, but I haven't heard of a spring parade before. It looks like fun.
