Man Stores Lawnmower Horse On Balcony

Man Stores Lawnmower Horse On Balcony

A Polish man was not bothered when he found that his lawnmower had broken down – he simply borrowed his friend's horse to cut the grass and stored the animal on his balcony when he had finished.

Borys Kozlowski, from Grajewo, a town in north-eastern Poland, said: "I didn't want anybody to steal the horse. It did a great job on the lawn, and I wouldn't leave the lawnmower lying around either."

When Borys, 48, finally got around to cutting the overgrown grass he discovered that the lawnmower had given up the ghost.

He said: "I saw a pal of mine while I was trying to fix it, and he told me I should forget the lawnmower and power up his horse, Dolina.

"I thought it seemed like a good idea, and as the horse was only a short way away anyway. We went and fetched it and then he left me with the horse tethered in the garden eating the grass. As well as short grass, I got some fertiliser as well.

"Afterwards he hadn't come back and I didn't want anyone to pinch the animal, so I took it up stairs and through my flat and left on the balcony."

Passerby Jacek Cimoch said: "I was walking down the street when I noticed a horse standing on the balcony.

"I took out my phone and took a photo and put it on Facebook."

The horse owner Jakob Pancesky collected the animal in the short while later, and said: "He is a bit of a character. He has never been frightened of anything in his life - you can fire a starting pistol next to him and he would only turn and look at you. I guess a flight of steps was no big deal to him."
