In case you're unaware, to us 'over the sea', fanny is slang for... a girl's 'front bottom'.
well, talking about a horse in a "float" or "floating" your horse conjures up images of some kind of horse balloon, floating.
And "agistment"? What kind of weird word is that? I have never heard that , ever, in any kind of usage. But "board"? Yes, we have the human equivalent. It makes sense.
You Aussies have your share of weird language usage, believe you me!
