The Drunken Horse Race

On Sunday 2nd October 2016 “The Drunken Horse Race” took place on the Crickhollow server in LOTRO. At Elevenses earlier that day somebody asked “how do you get a horse drunk?”. It was pointed out to them that it was the rider who was drunk, not the horse. So I headed up to the start line the Thorin’s Hall, to take part in the race and also planning to get some screenshots. However the best laid plans of mice and hobbits oft go awry. The flaw in my cunning plan was that while drunk the whole world looks blurry. Never the less I present my efforts below.

The race was eventually won by Nidolhon, with Dorren second and Feroil third. Great fun was had by all and many thanks to the organiser Master Pontin and the judges.
