I really can not add to this conversation. We don't have moose, gators, lions, snakes, bagpipe playing townies walking back roads, or strange men dressed as a bush riding a bike. We do have men dressed in bright coloured boots, dark chaps,chaffs or leggings (dependent which country you hail from) Long trench coats and dark hats. These are mostly seen in the South Island of NZ where we have 20 million sheep and horses to round them up on.
One rearly runs into one in the bush or on country roads so the horse don't get spooked. We have deer, wild pigs, possoms, and in Northland where I live, in the bush we ocassionally come across the odd individual wandering around with a stoned look on their face. That does not startle the horse as they are moving to slow.
There was one ocassion on a bush ride with abunch of us, generally me being the only male. We stopped for lunch when the message went out. (Look the other way Stan) I knew what that ment.
One of the ladies needed a wee stop, and as always she squated beside her horse, being covered by its legs, to a fashon. Picture this, the horses were lose tethered along a fence line.
Stella was second in the line, her horse she had used as cover, suddenly moved away. Stella spotted her close to the ground, squeeled and bolted, the other horses reacted to Stella as quick as a flash leaving this lady exposed, and my camara was on Stella.
