He was just horsing around.
Legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne revealed he once promised himself to never take acid again after finding himself in an hour-long conversation with a horse in the middle of a field.
The former Black Sabbath frontman, 73, said he was left astonished when the horse apparently talked back to him — telling the rocker to “f–k off” at the end of their apparent exchange.
“At that time in America, people were very fond of lacing your drinks with acid,” the “War Pigs” singer told the Daily Star. “I didn’t care.”
“I used to swallow handfuls of tabs at a time. The end of it came when we got back to England. I took 10 tabs of acid and then went for a walk in a field.”
“I ended up standing there talking to this horse for about an hour,” Osbourne, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2019, remembered.
“In the end, the horse turned round and told me to f–k off. That was it for me,” added the rocker, who battled alcohol and drug abuse in the past.
Osbourne has been very open about his long history with substance abuse, with the self-described “Prince of Darkness” previously saying he’s been addicted to most drugs throughout his glittering music career.
The musician has been facing some major health woes over the last few months.
The “Crazy Train” hitmaker was discharged from a Los Angeles hospital in June after undergoing what his wife Sharon Osbourne described as “a major operation” that would “determine the rest of his life.”
Along with Parkinson’s and a bout with COVID-19, the musician has been dealing with the ramifications of a 2003 quad biking accident.
The rocker’s “life-altering” surgery in June involved removing and realigning pins in his neck and back.
