Public Safety (Mounted)

Here are a couple of Austin's mounted police refueling their transportation along the shore of Lady Bird Lake.


  1. Good grief. Those are fat sturdy horses. Hope they are never called into action, and not because of their build which I seem to be denigrating, but because they are wonderful animals and I hope they can stay safe.
    Some horse breeds ARE sturdy and stocky. Wonder what these are? I really did not intend to disparage them.

  2. Here’s A good Texas story about our mounted police. One night a terrorist tried to bomb the Mexican embassy, shot up windows at the Federal Courthouse and proceeded to the main police station with a rain of fire. A hundred yards away a mounted policeman who was going off duty, holding two horses, unholstered his sidearm and took him down with one shot.
