From dogs dressed as Darth Vaderto Elvis kitties, we can’t stop stuffing our four-legged friends into Halloween attire each October. Dog and cat costume parades are more popular than ever, and everyone from major pet supply companies like Petco to mom-and-pop Etsy dealers make a mint on adorable animal outfits. (Our pets, on the other hand, become more indignant with each passing fall).
We're not positive when this meme started, but some nincompoop (or nincompoops) had the bright idea of tweeting as top thoroughbred horses on Twitter -- i.e. taking on the personality of the horse and tweeting updates from the apparently 13-year-old girl-esque equine point of view. Frankly, it makes the Bronx Zoo Cobra meme look like Stephen Hawking.
Horses are funny creatures. Tthey’re totally into Skrillex hair and crazy hats. And don't even get us started on Mr. Ed. Even without talking, horses still crack us up, which is good, because horses can't actually talk. They can wear a ridiculous horse grin though.
What's the best part of the Kentucky Derby? The hats? The horse racing? The glasses filled with cold, cold whiskey? We couldn't decide, so we put some hats on some horses to help us figure it out. It didn't help. We'll make up our mind tomorrow when the race is over.
Seriously, if this video doesn't make you smile, there is something wrong with the feelings part of your brain. Seriously, we went into this like "no dancing pony can make us smile, cuz' we're hard like that," but we didn't last long, no matter how much we thought about the end of 'Marley & Me.'
We already know horses are prone to some pretty funny stuff, like Skrillex hair and semi embarrassing Halloween costumes. As our luck would have it, this is only one part of their entertaining shenanigans.
Like they typically do, Budweiser will be featuring their famous Clydesdales in one of their 2013 Super Bowl commercials. We're still not quite sure what they signify. (Budweiser: so good even a giant horse will drink it?)
Miniature horses are probably one of the funniest animals, hands down. There's just something about seeing the things in a shrunken down version that gets us every darn time. Honestly-- can you look at a tiny foal without cracking a smile? No way!
If there's one thing you need to know about us here at TheFW, it's that we love to find any excuse to dress up animals. This is especially true during the holiday season, because festive puppies and cats are like, the best things ever.
Between dogs dressed as Miss Piggy and Big Bird looking for work this Halloween season, we figured why not cram our other animal friends into fashionable Halloween get-ups as well? Sure, you're more likely to find a dog parade or a cat fashion show rather than a horse and/or seeing eye pony pageant. But, hey -- farmers and the children of the independently wealthy need Halloween love too right?
Mr. Ed may have been able to talk, but, as far as we're aware, he didn't know art. Justin the horse, however, creates paintings that can sell for big bucks by holding a brush in his muzzle. Yes, these works of art come straight from the horse's mouth.
A seven-year-old Arabian show horse made a break for freedom on Tuesday evening by plunging directly into the waters of the Pacific and going for a swim. Unfortunately, the stallion didn't get very far and had to be rescued by the Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol. Don't worry -- you'll make it next time, brave steed.
