Horse play - Parental Guidance Warning


The Irish are well known for their love of horses, but the Irish Police (Garda) know no bounds when it comes to the bond between horse and man.

Some say they take it a little too far, but I say there is no greater love than that between man and beast, especially when you are in a tight spot.

    2. My mind spends a fair amount of time in the gutter since I've worked in a man's world my entire adult life. That being said, the nastiest mouths I've ever encountered where on the women that worked in a factory I worked at in the mid 80's. They could make any man blush.....sheesh.
      The horse picture is hilarious. BTW.

  10. That looks pretty scary to me Tom - I have always been rather scared of horses. I saw a very similar one to this when I was out to lunch yesterday and i must say it looked gentle enough but those hooves!!!

    1. I have always been nervous of horses - even when I rode them. None of them ever tried this trick on me though, thank goodness. They have very small brains, you know...
