In my previous post about the Courir de Mardi Gras in Church Point, La., I promised photos of the animals of the Mardi Gras Run, but y’all, I took more than 300 photos that day. How in the world could I not share some of my favorites with you? The captions tell the story! (Even though big photos delay download times on mobile devices, I’m posting these large! I figure most of my viewers aren’t on their mobile devices, anyway!)

Check out the leggings on this horse!!!
Even the girls got in on the action!

This horse was really prancing
Runner playing washboard with crushed beer cans! How original!
Every wagon and float was equipped with a porta-potty. The decor on this one made me laugh!
He threw that strand of beads and hit my camera while it was up to my face! Thank goodness for THAT protection!
This little darling caught her fair share of beads!
Float rider, up close and personal!
He was about to throw this little ball and paused when he saw my camera
I love these pants! Gonna try to get me some made like this for next year!

Spring is actually in the air today, and I’m looking forward to a boat ride!
