Horse bellies up to bar at English pub


UPI News Service, 10/03/2006 

A horse has become a regular at a pub in the north of England.

Peggy, a 12-year-old cart horse, likes bitter beer and pickled onion chips, Sky News reported.

Jackie Gray, who recently took over the Alexandra Hotel in Jarrow near Newcastle, said Peggy was a shock the first time she saw it. But she has gotten used to the horse.

"She's no bother when she's in," Gray told Sky News.

Peter Dolan, Peggy's owner, used to tie her up outside. But one day Peggy, on a rope that was too long, followed him into the bar and he quickly learned that the horse had a taste for bitter.

"Peggy's no bother at all," he said to Sky News. "Most of the regulars know her as she's been coming in here for years and for them Peggy's a bit of a novelty. She's a proper lady. Sometimes she's better than some of the ladies we get in here."
