A judge in England just slapped a restraining order on a 67-year-old woman who won’t stop giving carrots to someone else’s horse.

Turns out the horse that the grandma was concerned about was examined and was being well looked after and in peak condition. The courts allowed the restraining order to go through. This isn’t the grandmas first run in with court either.
The same woman also got arrested in 2005 for assaulting her brother with rhubarb.
