Sea horse is neigh joke

Dorset Echo: FUN: Katie Beat rides Stewie in the sea off Weymouth. Picture: DMS FUN: Katie Beat rides Stewie in the sea off Weymouth. Picture: DMS

A RARE type of seahorse has been spotted in Weymouth waters.

But instead of having a tail and scales, this seahorse has four legs and fur.

Smiling Stewie has been enjoying a swim on sunny evenings.

His owner Katie Beat, aged 26 from Dorchester, a trained horse therapist, said: “I bring my horses down to the sea in Weymouth whenever I can but they are only allowed on the beach after 7pm so these sunny evenings have been perfect for us both.

"Stewie does more than paddle, he swims in the deeper water and tows me around all over the place, he is really a sea horse for sure.”

So what about the horse **** left behind ?? It was all along the prom this morning .
All hell kicks off with the mess dogs left behind
Think it would take at least a year for my dog to **** that much
Think it is dangerous for horses to be allowed on the prom
And this poor horse did not want anything to do with being in the sea
But she kept trying to make it
Was nothing close to a whisper ,,..........

Has anyone else noticed that dogs now can do their business in a plastic bag, tie it up and then leave it in a bush?
