Horse and Buggy / Amber Schmidt Facebook
Well, that is exactly what Mr. and Mrs. Gjermundson did with their family this last 4th of July. Fortunately for us, Martin Hovden was around to take a unique photo of the family going through the drive thru in their horse and buggy.
It didn’t take long for this timeless photo to get around once a friend, Amber Schmidt, shared it to social media. A few days later Dairy Queen thought it was such a neat photo, they shared it to their social media approving of the horse and buggy visit. It must have definitely put a smile on the faces that saw them pulling up in a late 1800’s style horse and buggy.
We ❤️ all of our customers! Our crew at the Killdeer, ND DQ was excited to see this group come through on the 4th of July!
Thank you for sharing this photo! – Dairy Queen
Even the local Dunn County Sheriff’s Office thought it was neat that the Gjermundsons took their horse and buggy through the drive thru.
Now that’s something you don’t see everyday! At the Killdeer DQ! Only in ND! Hopefully they buckled up after! ?- Dunn County Sheriff’s Office
Known commonly as a horse and carriage, people have been using them since the 15th century for short distance travel. In the United States, horse and carriage was widely used in the 1800s as a means of transportation. These days it is not common to see horse and carriage since the introduction of automobiles in the early 1900s, but they are still used in many remote parts of the world.
The Gjermundsons and the horses live in a town called Halliday, North Dakota. It is a quick 20 minute drive in a car, but probably closer to an hour buggy ride. We would bet the Dairy Queen in Killdeer serves some pretty amazing ice cream. Either way, it is always a treat to see a horse and buggy these days and it’s no wonder why people are loving this family visit!
