It is always great to see the mounted police at the State Fair of Texas. They can typically be found near Big Tex Circle before the Starlight Parade. These horses are huge.

According to their website, the Dallas Police Department Mounted Unit has been part of Dallas PD since 1982. The barn and offices are staffed year round, rain or shine. I was surprised to see people petting the working animals on opening day of the fair.
