Why Horses and Highways Don't Mix

Pferd im Auto, originally uploaded by T.J’s photos.

This shocking photo is posted just as a reminder of how bad things can turn out when horses get loose. Four horses escaped from a field in Germany and were in a road; this Haflinger was hit by this car and ended up diving head first through the windshield and was killed.

Amazingly enough, the driver of the car was unhurt, except for shock.

Thanks to T.J.’s photos for posting this image by Klaus Ponner. I hope it doesn’t disturb people too much but it is quite haunting in that it looks almost like an art installation. It’s tragic.

Have you checked your fences lately? Are you sure you closed the gate?
