Or shove a stick up someone's ass. Either way, there's definitely an ass involved.

Probably just mentioning a lawyer could fix that, frankly.

I was wondering the other day about something similar. I think when the Amish go to stores, they can leave their buggies in parking spaces, right? If I had a horse, could I ride it to a store or a restaurant and tie it outside? I live in Kentucky, so I can only assume the answer is yes, but I've never seen it.

I've seen it up in Newport. At party source of all places, and no one seemed to have a problem with it. The cop outside even had an apple to share with the horse!

It's a distraction to the students, and there is the possibility of injury if the horse were to get free or was harassed by students.

Uh, more then once someone rode their horse to school when I was growing up.

Hell, they didn't even get rid of the hitching post until the late '90s.

Congratulations. You just learned that in the real world, people with power can be dicks and may punish you for being creative. Graduation is just a ceremony. Kick the dust of this more-than-one-horse-apparently town off your heels and go do good things somewhere else.

However, that didn't stop school officials from sending everyone to in-school suspension for two days. Wilson and a couple of her friends were suspended altogether because they left school early without signing out a couple months ago.

Good thing they caught that before they graduated and couldn't be punished for that horrible crime.

Considering in Texas the law still states businesses have to provide hitching posts and water for horses and "Inns" have to stable horses, complete with feed and water I think this could be easily challenged around here.

Assuming they count those laws as still valid.

We tied ours to the bike rack. Seriously. Had a couple of students do it. The high school was across from a dairy farm so yeah,,,,

We had an alcoholic who had gotten busted for DUI not only in his truck, but also on his lawn tractor. After the lawn tractor incident, he decided to ride his horse to the VFW. Unfortunately, he didn't tie the horse tight enough to the parking lot sign. Next think anyone knows the horse is loose and running down the state highway through town.

/Why yes, I did grow up out in the boonies.
//Not so much now, it's been built up.
 
2012-04-06 12:05:35 PM  
I think they rode toy horses. TFA says "toy cars and horses." So Marvel the Mustang, not an actual horse.
 
2012-04-06 12:06:53 PM  
My dad was one of those "I used to ride a horse to school" kids. He rode his horse during elementary and middle school. He had a car by high school, but other kids still rode their horses. I attended his old school for a semester and they didn't bat an eyelash when a kid showed up on a tractor. The only incident that drew attention was a kid put cider in his car in an attempt to make hard cider. It didn't work he ended up with vinegar. They didn't even kick him out of the FFA, where he got the idea, instead laughed at him in class.

The teachers were kind of cool, but the town was too hick for my taste.

WTF was the school going to do with a horse (let alone horseS) all day? I'm no horspert, but I think they like water and food and the like when they're tied up that long. I'm gonna go ahead and guess they also like to shiat and piss. What was the kids' plan for that? As for the rest, are dirt bikes and toy cars even street legal?

The bike riders likely should have been left alone, the rest... OH NOES! 2 DAY SUSPENSION! I AM THE MOST PRECIOUS SNOWFLAKE AND I DEMAND THAT THERE BE CONSEQUENCES TO MY ACTIONS!

Also:
"Now I'm not going to graduate. I probably will not be able to graduate with the kids I've grown up with since elementary school, through middle school, through high school. I have those bonds, those connections and now everything that I've worked for has been taken away from me," says Wilson.

You're still gonna get your diploma, dimwit. Though I doubt you'll be using it for much.

Apparently this is a traditional senior prank. The school administrators are as usual a cancer on the system with a pension.

At my high school there was a school sponsored "Drive your tractor to school day". I'm sure the regular commuters going to work loved that.

The "toy" qualifier is not connected to the "horses" object.


I think you overestimate the grammatical nicety of newspaper writers working on deadline. All of the other modes of transportation sort of fit together (in that they were childhood toys). Horses, not so much.

The My Little Pony Killer: That's great and all, but what did the little geniuses plan on doing with the horses while they were in class all day?


Not really a problem. Tie the horse to a friend's car's side mirror, or to the bicycle rack. Fill a bucket with water. You can either carry bucket and water bags on the horse, or have a friend carry bucket and bottled water in his car, or fill the bucket from the tap at school, whatever.

If horses weren't so good about that whole standing around waiting for people thing, they wouldn't have been such a good form of transportation for so many centuries.

Who cleans up the mess the horse makes?

For this kid, causing a distraction is informally against most school's rules. They should have asked ahead of time. where was the horse going to be put up during the day? Who was going to feed it and clean up after it while the kid was in class?

It's always best to ask. the kid learns a lesson, a precedent is established, Lower the punishment for a first time offense. Everybody is happy. Life goes on.
 
2012-04-06 12:23:38 PM  
My first thought is, was this their senior prank? Headline of TFA: "Senior prank lands Murray County students in suspension"

Come on people, it's not hard to get away with a good senior prank. If you blatantly cause mischief in the open, "the system" is going to slap your wrist. That's just how it works. if you haven't learned that by the time you graduate high school, then wow, just wow.

Never mind; I watched the video clip. I'm surprised horseback isn't a standard form of transportation for kids in Murray County; that's Deliverance country.

and they should have been punished. if something had happened to them while they were off school grounds, would the parents have been understanding and said 'kids will be kids', or would the parents have blamed the school for not keeping an eye on their snowflakes and sued the school?

actions have consequences. you go out without permission, you take on the risk of being punished for it. that should be a badge of honor, not something to biatch about as unfair.

WhatPeopleAreReallyThinking: Am I the only one that thinks that it was just a really LAME senior prank?


Twenty years ago, yeah it would be pretty lame. But in this day and age I suspect that they were trying to do something innocuous that would not get them in trouble. More and more schools seem to be cracking down on school pranks that are construed as being disruptive or dangerous.
