The figure of a solitary horseman and his mount, Angel, made more than a few motorists slow their multi-horsepower engines for a better look at this quaint pair traveling alongside them on U.S. 90 in Jackson County on Saturday and Sunday.

Leslie Fender, 55, has been in the saddle for more than 6,000 miles since he and Angel left Texas 18 months ago. In Jackson County, Fender bedded down at Florida Caverns State Park, under the stars in his tent and bedroll. By early Sunday afternoon, he’d made it to westernmost Gadsden County, crossing Victory Bridge and moving on in to Chattahoochee. After he got through town and kept moving east toward Tallahassee, the driver of a passing car slowed to a crawl and the passengers rolled down their windows to chat with Fender a moment. They told him how pretty his horse was, and joked that their driver had thought it was a mule they were approaching. As they said their goodbyes, the driver sped up and pulled away, his passengers still laughing at him over the mistake.
