Last week I was in my apartment and I heard the clip-clop of a horse outside. This isn’t a normal occurrence on my street so I went to window and saw a police officer on her horse. Then I saw her “park” her horse. I snapped a photo. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get outside in time to take other photos since they made a brief pit stop. I found it humorous to see the horse parked with the cars on my block.

Nice bit of parking.
🙂 I was surprised by it.
So was I, but I applaud the rider’s tidiness.
It is proper.
Not sure the horse it too happy
I think this would be a tough job for a horse. To be in the city around all the cars,people, and such. I imagine he would rather roam free in the wild. But I could be wrong.
This picture tickled my funny bone. It put a smile on my face and have me looking forward to the day with joy. I wonder if he is illegally parked. Glad you got a shot of it.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
I’m glad you got a laugh out of it. Finding the humor in life makes it more enjoyable.
That’s hilarious!! 🙂
🙂 I never know what I’m going to find in my neighborhood.
Again.. very cool- you see some awesome things! I’ve lived here for 29 you’ve showed me things I’ve never seen! lol!! Looks like a nice street! I’m desperate to leave the suburbs and move to the city!! Do you live south/east/north or west?
I never know where I am, south, east, north, or west. According to Wikipedia, my neighborhood is 5km southwest from Charing Cross. Does that help? I’m in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. That’s funny that you want to leave the suburbs. The other day I was thinking I would like to find a home outside the city. The grass is always greener on the other side I guess.
Oh my gosh! You are in my DREAM borough- hey lets do a house swap.. lol I hear bird song.. children playing and pins dropping at night- I’m bored of it! That would be a great piece. ‘House swap flop’.. Methinks you’d miss the City!
I hear street traffic, tons of people, sirens, and a lot of construction. Don’t get me wrong, I love this neighborhood. And I think you are right, after living in Boston for 6 years and now London, I might miss city life. But sometimes I wonder what it would be like to hear a pin drop.
That is so funny! And unexpected. I would not think a horse would park on the street—I would think more of a grassy area!!!
A grassy area seems more fitting!
I love this! It just looks so strange. And so wonderful! Great capture! 🙂
Thanks Katie. The horse really stands out and looks uncomfortable.
Glad you got a kick out of it Hook.
That’s great! It sure makes parallel parking easier to do! First the smart car…now a horse…I wonder what you will see next.
That is a good point. I’ll have to keep my eyes open. Maybe I’ll find Santa’s sleigh.
lots of funny things happen in London 🙂 Great shot 🙂 Yeah, what are you going to see next? 😀
Maybe a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and then I can buy that boat you had on your blog. Wouldn’t that be nice?
It certainly would 😀 I will be looking for that pot too 😀
I wish us both luck and if you find it, can I visit you on your boat?
Ha, I hope she bought a parking ticket too for horsie 😉 Great photo 😀
I should have checked to see if she paid for parking! It is expensive here.
That s why I was asking lol
Next time I’ll ask. I wonder if I can outrun a horse.
Maybe it was just practice for parallel parking day?!
That is an idea! I could use the practice. I was horrible at it, but I’ve never tried with a horse.
Such a wonderful capture!!!
Just hope the horse didn’t leave anything behind!
There were remnants but I didn’t take photos. It was funny to watch people not notice it until it was too late…that’s mean I know.
Oh man, do you ever think like I do. In my family we would be placing bets on who would step in it first!! 🙂
Of course! Too tempting not too. We used to live by a subway stop in Boston and we would make bets on who would catch the train. It was always humorous to see people running to make it. And then when they didn’t, watching the reactions was priceless.
Brilliant – hope she “indicated” before manoeuvering!
I don’t think she did! Can I make a citizen’s arrest in England?
I’ve always wondered how you parallel park a horse.
Now you know!
Very funny. Thanks for the smile.
This is amazing, Thank you dear TBM, with my love, nia
I found it funny.
Wonderful picture. Blessings to you.
