View Point

A tractor pulling a set of harrows passed the horse and rider on the downs.

“Blue.” The horse said. “Nice colour.”

“Red tractor?” said the rider.

“Oh no.” said the horse. “I was looking at the harrows. Everyone has a different point of view.”

“Why did you head butt me? Said the rider.

“Well I can’t hug you.” Said the horse. “So I use my nose to say hello.”

“But you are bigger and stronger than me and you send me flying.”

“I’m sorry.” Said the horse, “I’ll try and be more gentle next time I want to hug you.”


“I thought we were going for a gallop today?” Said the horse.

“Well we aren’t we are just going to walk.” Said the rider.

“Boring.” Said the horse.

“Yeah, sometimes we have to be boring.” Said the rider.

“That is so human.” Said the horse.
