Even though I have only been awake for about 2 hours—I woke up at around one in the afternoon—this day has already been pretty exciting. After I had finished my usual morning routine, I looked out of my window and to my surprise there were two rather large horses drinking from the pond in my backyard. Needless to say I was very surprised. Well, my first thought was that Rick—this pretty cool 80-year old doctor who lives right beside me—had forgotten to turn on the electric fence to his horse stall. “The old man’s finally lost it.” I told myself as I threw on some clothes, grabbed a camera, and started walking to his house.
When I opened my back door, however, I noticed that the horses were no longer at my pond. Instead, they had made their way to Rick’s yard and he was standing outside looking at them. I snapped a few pictures and went to talk to Rick. He asked me if I knew who these horses belonged to, and I told him I didn’t know. So I guess they weren’t his after all. The two of us talked for a bit longer, and we agreed that we should just leave them alone because somebody would look for them eventually. I thought about calling animal control anyway, but decided against it.
After leaving Rick’s place, I noticed the two animals had made their way down the road, so I followed them a short distance while simultaneously taking pictures. Probably less than a minute later, I started to get bored so I turned around and headed home. I would have followed them longer, but I really wanted to write about my little adventure in this blog.
But that wasn’t the end of it…
Not even a minute later, when I was back inside my room, I looked out the window again only to find the same horses were BACK in Rick’s yard. The only difference was that Tonya—one of my neighbors who babysits pretty much all the time—had brought her little kiddies up to look at the potentially ravage beasts. I thought that was kinda interesting.
Other than that, my day has been pretty typical. I went to McDonalds, but that’s about it. Oh, and sorry this post doesn’t have anything to do with social engineering. I’ll try to keep off-topic entires to a minimum, but I couldn’t help but post this one. After all, it’s not every day that you wake up only to find horses drinking out of your pond. Until next time, this is Sebastian signing off.
