Photo -Finish Friday-- South American Cowboy and Tourist

On an Uruguayan Ranch

Here's a proper Uruguayan gaucho pulling a cowhide.
We spent an afternoon about three years ago on a Uruguayan ranch enjoying the food, wine, beer, atmosphere, show, and various activities.
Riding a cow carpet pulled by a gaucho was one of most fun things I've ever done.
If you look behind the horse you'll see the cowhide carpet and my husband enjoying the ride.

Now that would be a blast. That would be a great way to spend the afternoon.

Looks like so much fun! (Note to self - find cowhide so we can try this at home!)

Hilary, it was. It's equivalent to being on a banana skin behind a snowmobile.

Bag Lady, get a cowhide and some rope. You won't regret it.

Riding on a hourse pulled cowhide. Now that's something to put on a list of "things I've done"

Laurita, if you ever get a chance, do it. It's so much fun.

Uruguay. Now i want to go there, too. So many places in this big world, such a limited amount of time.

Dawn, if you ever get a chance, try this.

Uruguay's great, Messymimi. But if you are a vegetarian, then you may have a challenge.

I wonder....do they train the horse not to make "pies" while a tourist is behind them? That could turn a fun time a bit sour. lol

Ya takes yer chances, Reb.

Sounds like riding a toboggan behind a horse or snowmobile.

Leah J. Utas said...

Once again the "jews" who run America are showing the world why Jesus/God calls them the synagogue of satan: http://www.realzionistnews.com/?p=710. They are literally satan's emissaries on this planet who have tried to destroy and hamper Christ's mission at every turn. By the way, our friend, Brother Nathaniel, who runs Real Zionist News could use some financial help. The "jews" have him under constant seige because he speaks the truth about them being the most murderous tyrants the world has ever known. Worse than Rome. Worse than the Mongols or the Huns. Worse than Pol Pot. They're the founders of communism who murdered 60 MILLION CHRISTIANS. Yes, I'm talking about the "jews". And there's one thing you can be sure of: If you see a Christian who supports zionism/judeo-communism, he's no Christian. Read about the "jews" and what they did to Russia at http://tinyurl.com/JewsFoundedCommunismPeriod. They'll be doing it to America next if you don't pull your heads out.

PS: If democrats are so liberal and liberals are so concerned with rights, why did most democrats in the House vote for the Detainee Security Act which effectively nullifies the Bill Of Rights?
