I'm being judgemental again

Just down the street from my sisters house is a rather large home with big wrought iron gates with dreadfully pretentious gold horse heads slapped in the middle of them. Way, way beyond their house and garden is a paddock and in this paddock is a pretend horse that is life sized and saddled up. Seriously WTF? My sister had told us about it and I wanted to see it for myself so we took a quick drive down the road and to the top of the hill where I could clearly see this "thing". Now I am going to MAKE her go and knock on their door and see what the hell they are thinking. Damn she just said she won't go to a strangers door as they might have a dog. If they do it's probably stuffed too, silly girl!

There doesn't appear to be any "real" horses anywhere on the property.

Maybe they get a discount on taxes if the land is used for farming or horses, like in North Florida? Hey, some people drive in the HOV lane with dummies, so why not a fake horse to fool the tax guys? Or maybe that was their favorite horse and they had it stuffed, poor thing.

Love the idea, a cheap way to own a horse. Think of the benefits, no food, no vets bills, you don't have to exercise it, you can leave it when you go away. It will never die, might need a lick of paint now and then though.

It's just like not having a horse!

It would be hilarious and creepy if they had mannequins of people in riding gear on the grounds.

I know Brits can be a bit stiff, but even the horses?!
