That’s a fast moving road. Pretty lucky it wasn’t hit by a car.

Well as long as they keep the homeless off the buses in winter, I guess a horse or two are OK.

Now I’ve heard of cart before the horse previously.

No, your CARD. You need to swipe your fare card first. /s

In this case a mare card.

Probably still better behaved and with better hygiene that some late-night riders…

Was it a mane road?

Strangely enough, the smell inside the bus actually improved.

I’ve been through Wales with a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain.

One wonders wither it went, then. I expect it was handy for somewhere. Maybe it was one of those roads that can tack from left to right but I’d bridle at using a road like that. Maybe it flanks the main road? At least the horse got off the bus and the driver wasn’t saddled with it. But I bet it would stirrup some talk amongst the other passengers.

I already have my coat, don’t worry.

UK bus service is so bad, it’s almost animal cruelty to ask this poor thing to take the bus. :wink:

(Seriously, one wonderful thing about rural areas is that people are used to problem solving, handling animals, etc. I took volunteer fireman training in the city nearby. When the instructors pointed out that a fireman should be prepared to lead cattle out of a farm, the looks on the faces differed widely between city people and country people!)

Climate change has become that bad?

Oh, he actually stable-ized the bus.

By the way, Jalopnik’s article says the horse was in fact hit by more than one car, but he wasn’t hurt, and didn’t seem neighgative about it.
