Even the horses in New Orleans celebrate Mardi Gras!

Check out this video of a New Orleans mounted unit joining in the carnival fun.

There's not much I can add to how awesome this is, you just need to watch it. LOVE that horse (and the cop ain't too shabby either). Be sure to watch it all the way until the end, when dude just strolls off, cool as a cucumber.

This video brought back memories of a comment made by author Bill Loehfelm at Bouchercon 2016 in New Orleans. Loehfelm is a New Yorker who moved to NOLA in 1997. He said that dealing with the NOLA PD Mounted Unit during Mardi Gras could be summed in three statements: "Yes sir/ma'am", "No sir/ma'am" and "Thank you officer, I'll be on my way.

H/T to American Police Beat on FB for the video and to Cajun Navy 2016 on FB for the link.
