I found a horse and a gun in San Francisco…

Yes, it’s been a bit quite. That’s because I and family were out West. We decided to go west after hearing about the recent discovery of gold!

Oh wait, not quite the story…

I had a work related conference in San Francisco and my family came along for the ride. Enjoyed a number of activities (including playing “brain pong”) and museums, rode the historic trolley, saw the giant redwoods, and much much more…

However, one event was of particular interest to this blog.  A carousel ride. Wait…you’re asking yourself “How in the world could a carousel ride relate to the N.U.G.U.N. Blog?”

My wife hopped on a horse and I sat down on the horse next to her. Low and behold I soon found myself on my trusty steed packing a six-shooter. (Come on, use a little imagination folks.)  It turned out that carved onto the side of my carousel horse was in fact a holster revolver.

Carousel and Side Arm

Definitely a unique experience. The carousel was built in 1906.  You know they would never include such artwork in a modern day ride.  Although I didn’t see any other horses bearing sidearms. I did find some photos indicating at least one other horse bearing a sidearm.

Here are more photos showing at least two horses with sidearms

Enjoy!
