Look at them, just look at them, they think that they are the bee’s knees. Smelly things. I just do not know why the humans like them. They are soulless without a spark of life. And they are poisoning the air that we all have to share.

Don’t worry Ned: the master’s daughter still loves us.Β 

I know she does, but look she’s sitting inside one, it fair turns me blood Meg.

She will be alright, has she got her seat belt on, can you see Ned.Β 

She’ll need one tomorrow, when she rides me.

O don’t be like that Ned.

I do see you

I do love you Ned

    Dear Mike,

    Cute story. I never knew horses felt so strongly about the automobile. πŸ˜‰

    I think the master’s daughter had better rethink her priorities. Good take.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Ned really loves her, she will be alright. Unless she forgets his food.

    Lovely story Michael, with a serious point beneath the fun. Excellent.

    I love the point of view of the horse… Not fun to be tossed aside. Great take, Michael!

    1. Michael Humphris

      Hopefully Ned’s will be a good fellow, and the masters daughter will not get tossed.

    You and I were on the same track–different trains πŸ™‚

    1. Michael Humphris

      I do hope that we are travelling in the same direction, Mike

      1. granonine

        I think we were πŸ™‚

  8. Sandra

    I think she’ll be in for a rough ride. Nice take.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Ned’s really an old softy, the daughters safe I think.

  9. Alicia Jamtaas

    I enjoyed your tale being told from the horses point of view. Master’s daughter better beware.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Ned’s really an old softy.

  10. James

    Autos making the horses jealous. I’d never have thought of that. Well done.

    1. Michael Humphris

      It came straight from the horses mouth.

  11. Christine Goodnough

    Loved this. Warn poor Ned he might be cutting off his nose to spite his face if he starts being too rough.
    I like that old cliche, “the bee’s knees.” “DOWN with banning CLICHES! πŸ™‚

    1. Michael Humphris

      Absolute on all counts, thanks you.

  12. HonieBriggs

    That’s a story straight from the horses mouth. HA!

    1. Michael Humphris

      Neigh; says Ned.

  13. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover

    Great POV. I feel for the poor horses that technology replace, although I think they have a better life now.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Not as interesting though; but thank you so much.

  14. plaridel

    I loved the ending. it made me smile. πŸ™‚

    1. Michael Humphris

      They say that smiling is good for us so I am pleased

  15. draliman

    Ned needs to lighten up and embrace the future! Though it’s not looking so rosy for horses, I suppose.

    1. Michael Humphris

      He had just eaten a thistle

  16. Sarah "SacaKat" Fairbairn

    Ha! I loved the horses humor and perspective on the new automobiles. A really fun read.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you for the lovely comment.

    I had a member of the equine family once who was prone to muscle cramps. We called him Charley horse.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I feel for Charley, muscle cramps are not nice

  19. Michael Wynn

    I really enjoyed this especially as whilst I use a car as much as the next person I’ve never found them interesting or beautiful, horses on the other hand are.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I was fascinated by the development of motor vehicles, but now I see their negative side.

  20. Keith's Ramblings

    Love it! I had a horse pull my car out of the mud once. I’m sure he was laughing inside!

    Click to read my story!

    1. Michael Humphris

      I reckon he was, hope that he got a reward.

  21. Michael Humphris

    Ned said only one carrot? – Thank you for your lovely comment

  22. The Reclining Gentleman

    I loved this original perspective. Horseless carriages will never have the romance and character of carriageless horses

    1. Michael Humphris

      I do agree about horses. Thank you for your feedback, it is appreciated.

  23. Clare Hempstead

    A great story. It made me smile.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Smiling I am told is very good for us. Glad that you enjoyed the story. Mike

    Awww…what a sweet point of view. I feel for him.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Perhaps a little to sweet, I am removing the apples from his mash.

  25. patriciaruthsusan

    That’s okay, Ned. He may need you for a tow if he gets stuck in a ditch. Good writing, Mike. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Suzanne – Ned appreciates your comments, says that they are better than a carrot or apples.
