Description
View 3: One woman and several men wearing western clothing and on horseback, ride through the streets of an unidentified location en route to a parade, as a motorcycle police officer rides alongside. The woman, wearing a tan hat, beige blouse, beige fringed skirt, and dark boots, and a man wearing a cowboy outfit complete with a ten-gallon hat, can be seen at the front heading the group. A ten-gallon hat was often thought to be large enough to hold ten gallons of water. This is not true (unless you have an exceptionally large head). The gallon in "ten gallon hat" derives from the Spanish galo´n meaning braid. Therefore, a ten-gallon hat is a hat with a braiding around the brim, and which in fact, holds less than a gallon of water.
