I know horses don't like me. I told my wife that and she didn't believe me. We had gone to sleep in our tent at Whau Whau and woke to the sound of galloping horses circling and circling our tent. There was no reason for this other than their dislike of me. My wife, an animal person, couldn't believe it.

This would not be my last encounter with horses.
