We were walking on the footpath back from Kingston yesterday evening when three killer ponies attacked us in the field on the other side of the A27 at the end of Cockshut Rd near the Sports Centre and nearly pushed us into the creek. Bullied us all the way to the gate. Couldn't help to show them my middle finger in revenge once we were safely through the gate. It's like the Pony Mafia. Last time I was afraid like this was in Naples. The kids at the corner of Cliffe/South St are like bunnies compared to them. How do you bribe them? Apples or Carrots? I wonder how many bodies are at the bottom of the creek unfortunately enough not to make it to the gate..

A good sharp slap accross the soft skin just above their mouths should sting enough to send them away! Failing that, tug on their long eye lashes .... they'll soon piss off!

Town? County? District? or Bonfire?
any case the answer is the same - fine them, fine their owners, fine the field owners, fine anyone thats involved with keeping them or breeding them, fine anyone thats ever kept or bred or ridden or fed or stroked ANY pony or horse or ass, steed, charger, stallion, mare, donkey or zebra, fine anyone thats ever eaten or cooked or had carnal knowledge of any equine - that should be a start - oh yes afer they've ALL been fined by the Town, District or County council the Bonfire council can BURN THEM

Thanks for the tipp 40S but the came galopping at 120 mph!! NCRM, I didn't get a positive ID as it was twilight and they all got long noses and tails. I fear that any investigation will lead to nowhere and that police involvement will make them pick at us especially. Can't sleep as I hear galopping and heavy breathing outside the house. Took carrots along tonight but no sight of the silly buggers...

I think you'll find that like bullocks, they get very bored standing in a small field and they are just curious. They may also expect passers by to feed them. All you have to do is stand up to them - or make a slightly aggressive gesture towards them - and they will pull up sharply. Grazers are generally dominated by humans because they judge us as a threat by our height rather than our bulk - and they often see us from ground level. Also, they are vegetarian, so they have no hunting instinct, unlike us. So, unless they are protecting their women or their children, they have no reason to be aggressive.

Send them back down the pits and leave them there, that's what I say. They bloody frightened the life out of me.
