An amateur video shot in Richmond Park, London last week, gone viral in the last 24 hours.
Horse or dog or just animal ownership in general summed up in 47 seconds.
Caution: May induce hysterical laughter. Some mild blasphemy.
Reminds me of a horse that I cannot catch for the life of me at our ranch. He is a 6 million year old retired WP gelding that does a beautiful show jog just fast enough to keep his halter out of reach. If you start to jog, he will do a show lope. There is nothing more infuriating than being outrun by a WP horse
My house in London backed onto Richmond Park. I used to keep my horse right near one of the gates and rode in there every day for years.
I saw much the same scenario one summer Sunday afternoon--the deer took off through a patch of long grass. Suddenly, in front of them, these two heads popped up out of the undergrowth. Fortunately the stampeding deer parted like the red sea around the couple who I would guess would be thinking twice about kanoodling in the park in future.
Loved that video. Just hysterical.
ETA: Hope everything was okay with Fenton afterwards - I am assuming that he wouldn't have posted the video if it hadn't ended well. I work on recalls but unless I am in a fence I honestly keep dogs on leash because I always worry that they might get a wild hair and I wouldn't be able to catch them and they'll be lost or hit by a car or shot or or whatever. So I'm sure it was terrifying for Fenton's master.
