Carriage Parade - A Beary Merry Christmas
The day for the parade dawned sunny and bright.
The entires presented quite a sight.
Here's a mini-donkey in reindeer ears and a cart,
This palomino Gypsy won my heart.
Here's a pretty landau pulled by a team; black and white,
While the big teddy bear waves to the left and the right.
Here comes Boomer from Moondance Ranch,
And a Rocky Mountain stallion wearing pants!
Town dignitaries prepare to wave to the crowd,
Doesn't the 'Teddy Bear' driver look very proud?
The mini is small and the doggie is tall,
This tiny team made the crowd go, "Awwww!"
The town's mounted police put on quite a show,
And I'm there, on the left, telling groups when to go.
Beary, Merry Christmas from my town to you all,
I'm glad I could share some of the sights that I saw.
