Wordless Wednesday: Just Horsing Around

 


Not gonna lie, the first time I saw a horse lying down in the grass 
I circled the car back around to do a double take.
Looks like I'm not the only one. ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. Sandee, it's meeee!! I'm one of those people. I didn't know. For some reason, I thought they didn't lie down, hahahahahahaha

  2. Ahaha. That is awesome. A lot of people think that horses suffocate under their own weight if they lay down, but it's not true.

    1. Yes, the first time I saw a horse rolling around on the grass like dogs do, I literally drove back to make sure I was seeing right. The horse was clearly happy so I just drove on my merry way, knowing from that moment forward that horses indeed, do lie down, hahahaha

  7. This is hilarious. Can you imagine getting a 911 call about a horse lying down? Police: Ma’am are your horses ok? Hahahaha!

    1. The first time is probably startling, and then I'm sure it gets annoying if it happens again, hahaha

    1. Yes, this!! Horses are so big and they have a plethora of myths surrounding them too, that being one of them!

  11. This is such a funny sign! I grew up around horses - sometimes they need a rest too.

  15. This is funny a sign had to be made. But I'm sure it looks weird to see this giant animal passed out on the ground!

    1. It's funny too that they had a sign made. Makes me feel better that I'm not the only who didn't always know. ;)

  19. Many people don't know this, but all animals lay down for a little while. If they won't get back up is the problem.

    1. Ha! Renee, yes, that would definitely be a bigger problem.

  20. I can only imagine the amount of times this had to have happen for them to put up a sign!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would have totally thought that the horses were sick. I rode horses for a few years, too! Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  22. This did make me chuckle. We see horses sit down or sometimes even lie down as we live close to the farm but I am sure a lot of people don't realise that. Bless

  23. Hahaha, omg I've seen so many people falling for this. It legit look dead from far lool. This is good sign to avoid calling for false alarm.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I always wondered if they ever lied down. Very cool to know and I would have to have a double take too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love this and run all honestly I would gave freaked too as I never have seen one lay down. I always wondered if they ever did... thank you!

    Till many years I also thought versus lie down only after they die. Some firsthand experience at stables fixed that idea for me!

  28. This sign is so amusing and funny. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  29. I was asking this to my uncle that raises horse. honestly I didn't know this. And he explained it to me so that I could unstand it. thanks for sharing this with us.

  30. LOL I'd probably be worried if I saw a horse laying in a field too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've not came across this signage before, as I'm not horsing a lot here. It's good to read & good to know here. Cheers Siennylovesdrawing

  32. Horse is rarely seen in my place so I'm not sure about my reaction in this case haha.

    ReplyDelete
  33. If I saw one laying down, I would probably call for help too if I didn't know this just now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ha! This is funny, but obviously necessary. I'd be startled to find one laying down, too!
