Janey has had a horse for ages and ages and has tried to persuade me for about as long to get one as well. I’m not sure why I never did, too busy mostly, but last week I finally got around to it and with Janey’s help I picked out a lovely big shirehorse – he’s massive but in SL I’m well over seven feet tall so I need a big fella to balance me out.
The celebrate, me, Janey and Naz all went riding in the vehicle testing sims south of Murray (Brilliant, Balance, etc.) and we had a blast! It took me a while to get used the movement and I missed the running speed for ages, but once I had it Frank (yes, he is called Frank – problem?) moved like a greased penguin!
Here we are on a peak in Balance…
…and here Frank was rearing – what a beast!
This one, taken in the waters off Murray, reminded me of the scene at the end of Planet of the Apes (the good one, not Tim Burton’s fuck up)
Here is Janey’s post on the evening’s fun 🙂
