A Horse In The House.

 Meet Kev.  He's a Falabella and his ancestors come from Argentina.  He says that his family were River Plate supporters and Messi is his hero.  I am more of a Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company fan and Ronaldo is my hero along with many others.

This is the photo they sent me on WhatsApp when I was in Blighty at the two music festivals and touring about a few weeks ago. He is also an avid Lidl leaflet reader.

I told him my white horse joke: A white horse walks into a pub.  The  barman says: Hey we have a whisky (White Horse) named after you." What Eric?" Says the horse.  

Kev found it amusing.  Know any horse jokes?

He's called Kev and his temperament is superb.  I have my own four hoof powered lawnmower.  He doesn't need petrol either.

He eats the grass and leaves a few deposits to fertilise the grass.

I just wish they didn't invite him in to our house.  Not that this is anything new.  Sheep, goats, ducks, pigs and dogs and cats have all spent an hour or so in our dwelling in the countryside next to the sea. Do you ever get four legged visitors in your house?

  5. Thanks Kathy. We once had a bat fly down the chimney and it flew round the front room and I was told: "Get it out!" I am also given the job of shifting dead rats that the cats have caught and I have to dispose of them.

  6. I expect that Kev came in to watch the racing from The Curragh on telly. I wonder if he had any inside information. "Nay!" I hear him calling.

  7. He watched the Curragh racing and then he said he wanted to watch Naybours (Neighbours). I gave him a good horse tip called Dusty Carpet. It's never been beat!

  12. I used to love Mr. Ed when I was a kid. What about Francis the Talking Mule? There's another. I have a feeling though, if Kev starts talking, he'll always insist on having the last word.

  13. I am not familiar with Francis Debby. I grew up watching so many American films and programmes. Little House On The Prairie, Bonanza, The Virginians, Wonder Woman, The Dukes Of Hazard... Kev's got a lot of TV viewing to catch up.
