Horsing around

You can lead a horse to the drive-thru, but you can’t make the restaurant serve you. A woman tried riding her horse through a McDonald’s drive-thru outside of Manchester, U.K., on July 20. The surprised store workers informed the woman, whom police did not identify, that she had to be in a car to take advantage of the drive-thru lane. Undeterred, the woman entered the restaurant with her daughter and horse in tow.

According to local authorities, the woman was later fined for causing alarm and distress to employees and customers.
