Pony Express

You have probably seen the story recently in the press about the man who tried to take his horse on a train in Wales.

This reminded me of an incident a few years ago when I was asked by a customer how much it would cost to take a sheep in a wheelbarrow on a train. Not one to be thrown by customers strange requests I replied that the standard Acompanied Animals and Articles fare would apply. I did not even think the question was genuine.

I was therefore amazed the following morning when the customer returned and what did he have with him-yes a sheep in a wheelbarrow. I never did find out the reason why they wanted to take a sheep on a train, but than there are some strange people out there............

So, was the man with a sheep allowed onto the train?

Ha, ha, that's very funny, how could you make a sheep stay in a wheelbarrow?

Was your man Welsh by any chance? If so, perhaps he was just taking his 'best friend' out for the day :O))
