Bad Horse


Copyright -Douglas M. MacIlroy

‘You comin’ for me? You comin’ for me! I’m the only one here so you must be here for me! Who do you think you are, you feckin’ knacker?  I’m Boxer the second and I know my rights.  I got my hose here.  I made my move.  It’s your move now.  Try it.  Come for me.  Make my day!    

‘Yeah, you better run!  And keep runnin’. Ha!’

Dear Rochelle from Friday Fictioneers chose this lovely picture for us by Douglas M. MacIlroy.  I hope you like my attempt at a mash-up 🙂

    You gave the horse real character

  2. the horse and the hose are in league / great job

  3. Defiant to the very end. I like a horse with spirit. He definitely shouldn’t be headed to the knackers.

  4. That is a horse with an attitude. He’ll end up running a knackers for humans if we aren’t careful.

    This horse will make you drink if you try to force it into anything. An original idea.

  14. This is a funny story. A nice water fight in the summer is so much fun. 😆

      Yes, I have many happy memories with my siblings doing just that, until the pipe accidentally turned on the windows. Then the memory flashes to mum’s red face, screaming that she has to clean all the windows again, and terror!

    Nicely done. If you don’t mind my asking, what’s a “knacker”?

    • Sandra says:

      🙂 I had to research that: It’s the man who collects animals from farms either cos they are dead, sick or otherwise unable to work. (At least that’s the definition I found)

  16. AnElephantCant help loving a horse with attitude!

  23. Never knew a horse could be such a bad-ass ! lol.

  24. That’s so cute. Nothing more fun than a water fight with a garden hose.
