My neighbour Odille knocked at my door and asked me to help her buy a horse she had seen on an English website ….or so I thought. It turned out it wasn’t a horse she wanted buy but the sperm to artificially inseminate one her ponies. And the Stud Farm wasn’t in England it was in New Zealand. Well…. my knowledge of the French language was definitely stretched and knowing nothing about breeding horses I found myself asking questions such as “Was the sperm fresh or frozen?...”What was the quality, how much did you get and how quickly could it be delivered?”
It was hilarious and definitely one of my more bizarre experiences.
