Ikea parking

Contributor "Q"posts in this scene from Ikea, a 4x4 with horse box having to use four spaces. As Citizen Q points out: this leaves some lovely bike parking

When you consider how much a horse box + horse weighs, this is actually a valid use for a vehicle with bigger engines and all wheel drive. What is surprising is taking a horse to ikea. Having taken a small child round the shop -indeed, having had a small child run off in that shop- it is clear that taking a small child round is a pretty stressful experience. But doing it with a horse? That is bold!

Well, it's probably easier than measuring the wardrobe you're going to put it in, taking it home and finding the horse won't fit...

Maybe, but how you get a horse to test the bed in such a noisy environment as ikea?

It would be highly impressive to see someone galloping up the escalators at the entrance on horseback.

I walked to Ikea once and tried to get a bus back, only to be told that they only did returns from the centre to Ikea, and couldnt do a single back to town. And no I couldnt buy a return because it was going the wrong way. Had to argue the toss for ages and it was only when he had a queue of irate passengers waiting that he bent the rules.

The #5 bus apparently does it, Bristol Streets thinks so.
