A trio of horses galloped down Patterson Road and into the Northridge subdivision on Jan. 21.

Daily Sentinel photographer Gretel Daugherty captured this photo of one of the horses eyeing Grand Junction police officer Matt Harmon. It’s an image that begs for a short witty or comical caption, which is where you come in.

Ok.  Let’s go over this one more time!  I start jumping rope.  As I approach you, you rear up on your hind legs, start jumping up and down, and, join me! We only need to do this once to set the World Record!

But officer, I just want a ride along.

Boy, when the chief said to expect more ride-alongs, I did not think this is what he meant.

“When the Sarg told me that he had a special patrol assignment for me, I thought he meant Boat Patrol or Bike Patrol.”

Now, look, horsey.  We can do this the easy way, or the hard way…. but either way you are going to jail.

Whoa I clocked you way over the speed limit so I’m going to rein you in.

“Trust Me”

I’m not going to horse around with you anymore. It’s going to be this rope or my tazer—you choose.

“Whoa there cowboy. I double-horse dare ya ta try that!”
Dale Clawson

“May I assume that you have never ridden a horse before?”
Dale Clawson

There are two points of view for this picture!
Officer-“Finally! Some good old-fashioned, RELIABLE transportation!”
Horse- “This ought to be interesting!!!”

Horse - “I don’t think so Scooter”

Cop - “You know of course, there is a new sheriff in town”

Horsey, Horsey, this is not a one horse town

Here horsey, horsey, come to daddy

Give me back my leg and we’ll talk.

“I hope you didn’t buy that horse-hair rope at the glue factory!”

Horse: “Harmon, drop the rope, step away from the vehicle”
