A pair of local horses decided it was time to get out of the pasture and stretch their legs a little Monday, taking to I680 near the S. Main Exit and popping up into traffic – doing what the CHP, fines, and other traffic calming measures have so far failed to do: Slow things down!
Readers sent in a couple of photos. The horses, we are happy to say, were corralled by their owner and returned safely to their pasture – with a story to tall.
Is it just me, or does it seem like there’s always a Mustang causing problems on the highway?
It’s a horserace every morning out here!
They stayed in their own lanes. signalled at all their turns and were respectful of others — more than I can say for most drivers on 680!
Get a horse! Better still — get two!
Sure got my attention! They were beautiful!!!
They went by a truck and the driver leaned out and gave them a hiyaw! Hilarious!!!
I always miss the good stuff. Saw a guy throw a water bottle at another car this morning. That was about it.
We bet on the gray to win!!!!
Saw them on my commute this morning…thought they were the google driverless horses we’ve been hearing about.
Where’s the “Guy traveling the country with two horses” dude?
Yes, some real horses asses on the freeway this morning 🙂
The came clopping by. It was great!!! I had the window down and the music on and they they were there and it was great. People immediately slowed way down for them. It was pretty cool. Glad they weren’t hurt.
I just got caught in the traffic jam. Didn’t see a horse.
I want to see horses!!! All I see are cars!!!!
Horses Mules and now a bull. What next???
@Alex – Please don’t ask. We’re afraid it will be locusts…
