Canadian pride: Don't mess with Reds' Votto & his horse 'Nibbles'

There's nothing bigger and better in Canada than the Red Serge.
At least that's what Joey Votto says.
Votto showed off his Canadian roots with pride as he sported the dress uniform of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in a hilarious interview with MLB Network's Intentional Talk on Tuesday.
The Reds slugger said the uniform comes in handy when his teammates get unruly on the road. "If there's any trouble I just hop on Nibbles and we go solve some problems."
Nibbles, of course, is his trusty steed.
Check out the video for a good laugh.
It's good to know the uniform is off limits to his teammates. Votto said "nobody else gets to touch the outfit," which is just fine with us because there's no way any other player on the Reds could represent the Red Serge quite like Joey "Vottomatic."
