Don't Buy A .....HORSE????

Horse on the way over from England!

(Actually Horses can't really surf. This is a clip from the 1960's show -Mister ED.)

Today, while speaking on the phone with a friend, she suddenly hollered out, "Don't buy a horse!"

So I said, "Don't buy a ......HORSE????"

She then proceeded to tell me that recently her 8 year old daughter came to her asking her for her credit card because she needed the numbers. The little girl said that she wanted to buy a horse on line but needed the credit card. Her mother then went flying over to the computer where she discovered that her daughter was indeed trying to buy a horse..on line....from.....ENGLAND!

After explaining this to me her Mom then hollered out, "You can get FREE horses from Pennsylvania!" (Evidently you can adopt a horse from some place in P.A.)

I LOVE it! EIGHT years old!! Obviously a very bright little girl! :)

Now I know this wouldn't really be funny if it happened and might actually be stressful...BUT..I also think it would be hilarious if they were to find out that there was a purchase for a horse on their credit card and even funnier if said horse was en route to the U.S. or showed up on their doorstep! (Hilarious as long as they weren't "saddled" with the bill!)

No doubt her little daughter would be pleased. :)

It is indeed a funny anecdote with an underpinning of a would be catastrophe (what a horrendous cost of the bill if if actually comes)but a charming and intelligent quest by a little girl to actually make an adult business transaction. What a scene it would be if an actual horse is delivered right at their doorstep. I would imagine the parents of the girl fainting. Thanks for the hilarious post. That surely made my day.

Hi Mel - yes - it would be horrendous if it went through but fortunately her mother caught her and would it have actually gone through without a snafu of some technicality? I don't know.

Then again, I would also love to pull up one of our Adirondack chairs to the border of our properties and watch the show. ;)

And of course really would not want anyone to have any added stress or difficulties, but it is funny to contemplate.

Glad you liked it. :)
