Well, that's a New One to me

I was out walking this afternoon when a rather strange thing happened.

I was walking across Riverside Park, when I heard the clip-clop of a trotting horse behind me. Not uncommon in this town, as we have a few tiny little pony and traps that gad about town. And that is what I thought it was, until I turned round.

It turned out to be on a man riding a bicycle leading a horse by the reigns, as the horse gaily cantered along to keep up.

That was a new sight to see in this only occasionally slightly bizarre town.

Before that, I had seen two people on inflatable canoes on the Trent for the first time. 

In other news I hate the new blogger interface but I have to use it to enter photos, which I then have to manually edit the html for in the old version or else my pics look low res. Adding labels doesn't work either.

  1. What an odd sight to see the horse being led, perhaps he needed exercising but couldn't be ridden for some reason. We live on the outskirts of a small town and often have horses go by.. the other day I could see the bobbing head of someone so moved to the window to get a view of the horse and to my surprise it was a msn on stilts!

  2. There were 5 ponies and carts out on a local street today!

  3. Funny to see the guy leading the horse like that!

    I don't like the new blogger interface either,
