Horse, or is it Pony?
I snapped this horse in the park this afternoon. A little bit surprised as few horses pass this way these days. It certainly drew a crowd as the kids forgot the skatepark and surrounded the poor creature. As this is somewhat unusual to see here I suspect the horse, or should I say pony, belongs to a gypsy caravan.
Occasionally an old fashioned round shaped Gypsy caravan passes through, often for a wedding somewhere nearby, and on two occasions I have noticed this parked in the town centre. Here is one example. Possibly the owner thought fit to take the beast to the park to feed on the long grass. All those kids around it but it appeared not to notice as its head rarely left the grass. Possibly it was hungry, possibly it was just being a horse.
Nothing else happened that I noticed so this is the exciting news of the moment. Of course when I looked back the beast had gone. Typical.
