We stopped to check out the horse parade. There were 46 in the line-up in varying stages of repair. Some were worse for wear. But it was a fun, quirky sight!

Destination: Bouncy Horse Gallop!

Bouncy Horse Gallop

This was a quick, fun stop on a trip I was making to nearby Route 66. On the way, I spotted a bouncy horse on the sidewalk at an antique store in Gilman. I bought it, brought it with me to the Bouncy Horse Gallop, and added it to the end of the line of horses in the field. Now there are 52 of them.

Easy to miss and right off what we thought was a busy highway. If wasn't for one tipster pin drop address I wouldn't have been able to find it. We thought we'd be able to get close, but we went when the crops were growing a little over it. Very odd and a little creepy.
