Yeah, Because That's Much More Likely

This weekend Maddie and I were driving through some farm country when I spied a curious sight out the window.

“Look, Maddie!” I cried, and pointed to a group of horses – one of whom was wearing what I can only describe as an equine version of a 1950’s rain over-coat. You know the ones: A translucent plastic that folds up into your purse, but when the rain starts Voila! You’ve got a see-through raincoat that’s tailored like a lovely day dress. The horse didn’t seem to mind and was munching away on some hay while sporting a semi-translucent plastic coat, tailored over his whole body. It snapped at the neck, wrapped around his withers, and came partway down his tail, as if made for his measurements.

“What?” Maddie asked, straining to see.

“Over there, with all those other horses! Maddie, it’s a horse in a rain coat! Can you see it?” I pointed out the window as I slowed down by the strange sight.

“A horse in a RAINCOAT? No way,” Maddie shrieked, and then spied the animal. She stared, then shrugged. “That can’t be a raincoat. Horses don’t wear raincoats, Mom, that’s silly.”

And then she added, “It’s probably just in a play.”

Which is apparently easier to believe than a horse wearing a raincoat.
