I was out on a walk with my walking group today, and while we were going through this one field, there were these two really friendly horses. Some of the other people seemed to be interacting with the horses quite well, but as I approached them, they took a strange liking to me. I suddenly found myself in a situation where both horses were quite forcefully walking behind me, and they started taking it in turns to push their heads against my rucksack. I tried my best to remain calm and just casually keep walking forwards, so as to not inject any further excitement into the situation. I was really at the mercy of two much larger and much stronger animals. I just kept hoping that their obsession with touching me remained on the friendly end of the boistrousness scale.
However, I just couldn’t seem to shake off the affections of these two strange horses, and the situation just kept getting more intense. Eventually, the climax of the whole affair involved me somehow becoming squeezed between the two horses’ heads, after which point I managed to break free, and they eventually left me alone, and one of them then went over to molest someone else. They had finally decided that his rucksack was more interesting than mine.
It just goes to show, even rural life has its dangers.
Anyway, at a different point in the walk, I saw this trampoline inside a barn:
I said to the other people in my group, “Hey, do you think that’s for the cows to bounce on?”
