that's a favourite prank among the country folks, we know all the shortcuts, up here in Scotland we are also prone to sending tourists to the 'wrong castle' for laughs

the Horse really does look built, I'm fascinated by it, some of the others are possibly just chance and illusion, but the horse with a scorpion I think may be deliberate, perhaps not ancient (hope the horse is) but they seem to be planed, Homer too, a farmer's sense of humour rather than an illusion or coincidence? I think so.
