BS: Have you seen the singing horses?

As if the hamster dance isn't annoying enough, now the horses are singing.

Wait for the entire screen to load up with all 4 horses & a fence in
front of them --   Then, click on each horse.
Re-click on any horse to make it turn off, or turn it back on again.

Very inspiring. It made my heart soar like an eagle.

If horse can do this, just think what humans could do!

Sounds like a Ralph McTell song...

Have you seen the old horse
who walks the Streets of London
Hooves worn and broken, he's been walking far too long.
He's got no time for singing,
Those horseflies keep on stinging,
And anyway, there's noone cares to hear a horse's song...

If you follow the URL back, there's another great animation. Now the question is: Does anyone here speak Swedish so they can tell us what it's all about?

A very equine-animous site, indeed!

Must be folk music.

Nothing to do with music, but there's an amusing video called State of the Union... Not Good.

Yes, this horse one has been doing the rounds and reached uk.music.folk some 10 days ago...

I love it!

Well, there is a LOT more than just one more animation. Go to http://svt.se/hogafflahage/ and hit the STARTA button. That opens up a java screen, and soon buildings and animals fall out of the sky. Moving your mouse pointer over the various animals (and the outhouse, etc.) will pop them up into a much larger size. Then clicking on them will take you to other screens, which take you to other screens. . .    Well, enough of TRYING to describe it. Don't want to ruin it for you, but watch out for the flies!   Just go to the page and STARTA!

Some appear to be games. For a few, I did not have the proper plugin.

I love the horses! I found them some time ago and I'm so fascinated. It sounds really good too! And I'm Swedish so if you Guest tell me exactly what you mean that you want to have translated I'll do my best.

Högaffia hage was a TV-program for children but as I have no TV I haven't seen it.

I think I promised to try to translate but… I'm sorry, I didn't know how big the site was! I can't translate everything and it's also difficult to explain which animals to click on and so. But if you click the elk in the upper right corner (pendling between the telephone poles) you will find a funny game...
Click on the elk, then click on the telephone pole so the elk appears again. Click on the elk... The goal is to prevent the German tourists from catching the shit! When you manage, you get points. Yes, shit from elks is a very popular souvenir among German tourists but we want to keep it for ourselves! ;-) Some people make paper of it and sell!

If you missed it, the startpage is here.

Then click start and you're in the "Högaffla enclosed pasture". There is the elk in the upper right corner.

I got the singing horses all right, and although I got the start page once, I can't seem to get it again, no matter how much I click. Nothing happens.

It looks as if the animation uses some of the newer products from Macromedia. Visit their website and download and install all the free stuff you find. I'm surprized you weren't sent automatically.

In answer to the question "Have you seen...."?
Yes. a thread was started in December which cross references a couple of other animations. This thread
