Many moons ago, when I was a child in the early 60’s, I regularly passed Hughes Dairy’s in Churchtown.
In the large field in front of the Dairy were a multitude of horses that were used to draw the milk carts every morning to deliver milk to every house that I knew!
There was one particular horse in that field that stood out to me,
He was mostly white, with faint dappled grey spotting
He was a little smaller than the rest
And, to me at least, he WAS Mr Ed!
Oh my, how many days did I spend a deal of time trying to coax him closer to the fence!
Offering carrots, or apples, or grass! Anything I thought might entice him.
I just knew, if I could get him close to me, that he would TALK!
I still believe he was Mr Ed,
But he never did take the bait!
