To No One’s Surprise Texas Folks Like to Pick Up Whataburger on their Horse
Sometimes, we "journalists" (we're disc jockeys so we can put journalists in quotes) have to have some fun. I mean, its the perfect way to have the correct mindset to provide you entertainment. But sometimes, we "journalists" find something that entertains us and want to pass it on to you. Case in point is a video that I ran across on the Whataburger Fanatics Facebook group. It was a guy riding his horse into a Whataburger online pickup spot. This sent me down a brief rabbit hole of other people riding their horse to Whataburger. Came and have some fun with me.
The first video that sent me down this fun rabbit hole comes from the TikTok user mosesvirgen1. It's a neat looking first person view of his ride up to his, I'm guessing, favorite Whataburger for a couple of apple pies. It seems he has done this before as the worker coming out to him is not surprised at all at seeing him on horseback.
P.S. - As we'll see in another video, apparently horses love the Whataburger apple pies.

This next video comes from TikTok user touillda showing a sheriff's officer who was probably participating in a parade needing a bite to eat before heading back to the station. Sorry for the language.
@touillda Don’t get me wrong I wasDo y’all think he went through the drive through? #houston #houstontx #texas #whataburger #sheriffs #cowboys #cowboy #horse ♬ original sound - Touillda
The next video from molls.balls shows a couple of ladies who were having some trouble getting their trailer through the drive thru so they decided to do the next best thing, take them off the trailer and ride through. Fun stuff.

Video number four comes from abazan78 as she is sitting in a Whataburger drive thru and spots in her rearview mirror a lady bringing her horse through the drive thru. This is not a first for this particular Whataburger as abazan78 asked about the rider and horse and was told by the attendant that her horse likes the apple pies.

Our final video of this shallow rabbit hole comes from hanna_mejia89. She is behind four riders as they make their approach to the drive thru speaker.

Fun stuff. Horses are such a pretty animal, too. Very powerful and strong yet very loving and full of personality. These occurrences are not just for random Texas TikTokers, when the Whataburger opened in Bullard, one of it's first patrons arrived on horseback.
