OT Things that go bump in the night

Post by David Hare-Scot » Thu, 28 Mar 2013 11:03:22



Last night it was a fine moonlit night, about 3am I awoke to ....

clop, clop, clopity-clump-clump, clop-clop-clop, thump, bump,...............

The ***y horses had pushed through the fence and one was on the verandah.

This morning I went out and there were two presents waiting for me - and the
flies.  Such generous beaties.

  it was just saying hello.  :)

  did they wander far?

  for some reason horse poo smells pretty good
in comparison to almost any other poo.

  as herbivores they're not eating the same stuff
as humans so their poo should not be too objectionable.
in comparison to pig poo ...  eww...

  cow pies are just a bit too messy to really
be rated good, but after a few days when they
get hardened up and the chickens can break
them apart then they are much nicer.

  i'm still glad i don't have to go out and
collect them as a fuel for cooking.

No, they went back to their pasture before morning. Tonight the fence will
be hot though, I need all the beauty sleep I can get.

Yes horse is fairly easy to deal with, once it is dry it is quite
inoffensive to me.

The same goes for carnivores eg cats.

Apparently it gives the kebabs additional flavour!
