horses loose

Owen’s sent this in with this note:

The mind boggles as to how a couple of horses got to the corner of Tillyard and Ginninderra. But there they were with the constabulary in attendance.

The police get to deal with all sorts of oddities, this would be a bit of a change from dealing with drunks, druggies and dangerous drivers.

But the real question is what caption would you put on this photo?

Just like to say these are my houdini boys Loki (the black, welsh D) and Diablo (the Grey, Arab) living up to their names. They were in the back yard getting all cleaned and smarted up for pony club. We went out for a bit to see my friends new baby and got a call while we were out that the boys had gone bush. So that’s the back story but just like to say I love all the comments.

Last time I heard it I fell off my dinosaur!

Bucking the trend – running away to escape the circus.

“Damn – Geoff was right, the Captain does look like a horse’s arse”

“You’ve heard of Rodney King right? Well I don’t wanna beat a dead horse.”

Boom tish I’m here all week please try the pony.

I am sick of playing Cops and Robbers, Who wants to play Cowboys and Indians.

Cop on Right – “when is it my turn to have a ride”.

A new initiative by ACT Parks and Gardens, cutting out the middle man in fertilizing the trees.

That’s a mighty fine ass you got there!!!

And just to be really offensive…

“Well ma’am your menu choices are pork, and let’s just say…other.”

When the pigs and horses got together in town little Johnny knew it wouldn’t be safe outside anymore.

Once upon a time a pig met a horse and a magical fairytale began

“Look he just wants a sugar cube.” “Just a little closer, human.”

Oops double post, can you delete one pls JB?

But I’d like to add…

“Okay you proved your point it’s not that big. You’ll still date a colleague though right?”

When the local pony club was rolled police rounded up the usual suspects

Two recent escapees from Chum apprehended in Canberra

Cop – High on grass. That’s gunna cost ya.
Horse – No waaaay maaaan, I got the munchies soooo bad.

Saddled with neigh-borhood horseplay, this pair grass to the Feds. “With any luck, we’ll have their night-mares sorted,” said Constable Trotter.

RAPID caught 2 unlicenced drivers this weekend!

If we let the mounted units horses run free, will anyone notice?

“this is your final warning, you’ve been given a move-on notice once today”

“Comon, it’s just grass man.”

cop: “I know you’re upset about the disbanding of the mounted police, but this is not the right place to protest about it.”

Well fellas, whaddya think about the new pursuit vehicles we got from the mounted police unit ?

(Cop on left): Now look here youse. Just because you think Black Caviar is going to win every single race anywhere in the world for the next ten years doesn’t mean you can just put yourselves out to pasture like this …

Cop on left: “…well that’s not the story your friend told us. You know what I think? I think you two were over in the playground eating all that long grass by the fence…”

Cop: We can’t let you outperform the TAMS lawnmowing service. Move along.
Horse: Munch.. Munch..
