Neigh lad, I’ve got no beef with you

I took these photos on the outskirts of Sheffield and thought they deserved a wider audience! They show a horse mistaking a calf for her foal - then the response once she realises it is not! Steve Hustler

This farmyard tale of mistaken identity comes straight from the horse’s mouth.

Keen-eyed reader of The Star Steve Hustler from Sheffield spotted the blindfolded animal having a real ’mare...

The chestnut-coloured horse was caught on camera showing her maternal side to the wrong species on farmland at Owler Bar, just outside of Baslow.

Steve was making his way into the city when he spotted the animals.

He said: “I thought these photos deserved a wider audience – a horse mistaking a calf for her foal, then her response once she realises.”

It’s safe to say this episode would have left a bad taste in anyone’s mouth...
