Drunk German falls asleep on top of horse called Sandy after mammoth drinking session
A drunk German admitted he ‘probably had one too many’ when he fell asleep on top of a horse called Sandy after a big night out on the town. Gallons of super-strength Bavarian beer did little to warm up car mechanic Guenter Schroeder, 26, when he left a pub in southern Germany without his coat. Having missed the last bus home, the reveller came across some stables, with a bed of comfy straw proving irresistible in the cold night air.
‘When I got inside there was plenty of straw, but the problem was that there were horses standing on it,’ he explained. ‘I’d got zapped on the private parts by an electric fence as I climbed into the paddock, and wasn’t keen to get zapped again. When I saw the blanket on the horse and the horse looked so peaceful that I decided if I can’t sleep under it I can sleep on top of it. And it was really warm and comfortable and the next thing I knew I was waking up with the police there.’
The beer fan came back two days later to apologise for scaring the horse’s owner Barbara Zoch, 38, and her 16-year-old daughter. ‘I tried to wake him up but he just carried on snoring away and refused to wake. So I called the police,’ explained Ms Zoch. ‘Judging by the state of him I imagine he had a pretty powerful hangover.’ A police spokesman added: ‘The one mystery is why the horse didn’t seem to care that he was there and let him just sleep on. In fact he only fell off when the officers tried to wake him and they were there to catch him.’
