A Texas man from Corpus Christi recently exchanged vows in a strange, twisted wedding. The man, William Leigh, married a Chestnut colored horse in a simple ceremony attended only by a few friends and co-workers.
As the couple was honeymooning at Churchill Downs, they could not be reached for comment. Maid of honor, Marie Crystle, however, offered the following description of the nuptuals. "Well, whenever a man and a horse have a relationship, it can only lead to mare-aige. It was a beautiful beach wedding at sunset."
"Will arrived at the ceremony in his SUV, while his bride pulled a cart loaded with hay. I don't really know exactly how to describe her...she isn't really a thoroughbred or any kid of Clydesdale or quarterhorse, so I guess she's just a mutt as far as horses go."
"For her something old, she had a bridle (a bride with a bridle, get it?). For her something new, she had a new saddlebag. Her something borrowed was lacy saddleblanket for the wedding night. The something blue was a ribbon in her tail."
"Instead of the traditional wedding march, they played the Mister Ed theme song ("A Horse is a Horse, of Course, of Course"). When they asked if anyone protested the wedding, someone said "neigh." After the ceremony, we threw oats instead of rice. At the reception, instead of eating cake, she just tied on the old feedbag."
"They did dance to a few songs: Horse, Crazy Horses, A Horse with No Name, and I'm Back in the Saddle Again. She was really hoofing it on that dance floor."
"William really loves that old nag. She loves him too and says the he's her mane squeeze. He told her when he proposed that he wanted to ride her off into the sunset."
