This man lives not far from us. The most cars I have seen banked up behind him is six; they all wait patiently as the horse clip-clops along. He does not frequent the main roads usually and if you find him on one he is only making his way to a side road so you need not wait long for him to turn.
Horses are a common sight. Due to the size of Guernsey I always imagined that keeping a horse would be a rather expensive hobby; a limited number of paddocks you see.
This tractor is a medium to small one so driving behind or past one of these does not pose much of a problem, however when you encounter one of the large variety that is a different story all together. Their wheels are taller than our car and they do not slow down or move over so a fair bit of footpath stunt driving is required to get out of their way usually.
Please take note of the granite wall. When we first moved here and I refused to drive on the tiny roads (the one in this photo would rate as a medium sized road) for the first three weeks I lived in fear of those granite walls. It was not until the children started school and I saw how many cars in the car park had 'granite rash' that I felt a little less daunted. It is obviously not uncommon to have an altercation with one and sport the scars of the conflict. I have avoided any granite rash thus far although now I have said/typed that out loud I should be expecting some in the next week or so I expect!
