that article is a masterpiece of deadpan. highlights:

PASSPORTS ARE NEED
I need to find out if anyone I know was nearby. I will report back
I saw a horse being pulled in a trailer by a car. The trailer was very small and the horse was neighing quite a lot. The car went round a bend and the trailer fell over. The horse ran into a field and carried on running. The man driving the car didnt know what to do at all. He started phoning people on his phone. At that point I drove off.
But now he's free!
How was Slovenia then? You didn't get caught up in any Hostel style nastiness?
the hostel i posted about beforehand was cool - Marco picked us up in his white van and took us to this apartment he had spare, he was very friendly. When he took us to the bus station a couple of days later we tried out our slovenian on him and he was about as excited by this as i have ever seen anyone:
Marco: Ah yes! 'HOW'!
Marco: WOW! 'Four', yes 'FOUR'!
Yeah, the hooves really tear up the flooring in the carriages apparently.
about the pictures accompanying the same article on the bbc site, in particular the one of the man and the horse in the pub and the fact that you can't see the man's face at any point to identify him etc.
i'm calling viral advertising bullshit on this
That pub photo is Wetherspoons in Wrexham and he's on his way out, which means he'd been in, the photographer was behind him and it looks like a professional shot. Defo bullshit. If I was a pub landlord I would stop the horse before it got that far, that's for sure, coz it's pretty far into the pub.
and they've traced him to a nearby gypsy site. Apparently they've spoken to his relatives who say he always takes his favourite goat to the pub, so they don't see what the fuss is about.
