Police, paramedics and animal welfare services were called out to a stud farm just outside of Morehead, Kentucky recently after a very bizarre call came into 911. A man had been seriously s*xually assaulted on a farm and required help. But he wasn’t attacked by another man. Or even a woman. He’d been r*ped by a horse.
While it might sound unusual, these kind of calls do very occasionally come into emergency services. Especially in areas known for breeding and rearing horses. Curious people and those attracted to animals experiment with horses and often live to regret their decision. But on this occasion, the man didn’t even know the stud horse was in the barn with him.
So how did it happen? Good question. Well, it seems to be a case of instant karma. The farmhand, 64 year-old Peter O’Hanrahan actually was about to indulge his sick equine peccadilloes, but with one of the Shetland ponies that the farm also breeds…
O’Hanrahan had stripped and put the pony on a small haystack in preparation, but before he’d manage to interfere with the miniature breed, he found himself becoming the b*tch of the farm’s most prolific prize stud, Wesley.
“I’m not proud, but I likes me some ponies from time to time,” he told The Lexington Herald-Leader after the incident. “I never thought about what it was like for them, but now I kinda know,” he went on. “Although obviously there is a bit of a size difference. Those ponies never needed a hundred stitches to their a*s afterwards.”
A spokesperson for The Kentucky Equine Welfare Center said this about the incident: “It really should go without saying… Humans and horses (or ponies) are not sexually compatible. It’s extremely confusing and cruel on the animal and you might end up like Peter here – walking like John Wayne for the rest of your life. Not that I’m suggesting that John Wayne ever conducted himself inappropriately with any of the horses in his movies. I’d like to make that extremely clear.”
