Clip Clop Clip Clop Clip Clop

There was a story in my childhood that always creeped me out.  It was the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  I am scared of horses.  I can appreciate them from afar but I have no interest in being near them. 

On Saturday morning my father-in-law left early, say 6:00 am-ish, and encountered a horse in the middle of the road.  It was not quite light out and definitely foggy.  It was by grace that my father-in-law spotted it in time to stop.  Surely they both would have died if he hadn't.

It turns out that the horse had been loose a while.  It had made the rounds of the neighborhood, including walking past our house. Twice.  Most likely in the middle of the night.

It creeps me out.  Clip clop clip clop past our house in the dark.
