Before you accuse me of reckless driving!
It was a horse’s fault!
At less than 40km/hr I was getting near to my house on Saturday when I saw a horse at the roadside grazing.
Not an uncommon sight.
I was almost abreast the beast when I noticed the cord around it’s neck stretched at my chest height right across the road and tied round a fence post.
No time to do anything but duck!!!
It struck my helmet and luckily passed overhead!
I stopped at a bar a few hundred meters further on and told the guy that runs it, who grinned and spoke to the culprit’s son, who hared off in the direction of the animal before someone else got there!
Gracias a Deus!!!
