Sledging is one of the great joys of winter. All it takes is a little snow and a slope! Using sleds, garbage lids or a simple piece of plastic, you can hurtle down a slope and feel like you’re flying! Even though sledging is great, it’s not the same without friends.
One girl always has friends who are down to sled!
You probably only think of your human friends who want to sled. You’re wrong! A farm animal apparently has an affinity for slopes and everything that is slippery!
In Maryland, one 2015 storm brought enough snow for an adventure.
At White Tail Farm in Maryland, a little girl learned something unique about horses! The girl’s grandmother owns the farm and is known for breeding mini-champion horses! It turned out that these mini-horses did not want to be left out of the pleasure of sledging.
The girl and her grandmother decided to use the mini horse pasture as their sledding hill of choice.
Like a good grandmother, she decided to film the whole sledging adventure, and it’s a good thing she did it! What she captured was a hilarious moment that hundreds of thousands of people watched and enjoyed.
Sitting on the snowy ground, the girl is surrounded by the horses!
Looks like they’re all trying to snuggle up around the girl to stay warm. While mini-horses often have a reputation for being “bad guys”, these little companions seem to want to participate in the party! Although she is completely surrounded by horses, the little girl decides to do her first sled.
Hiking a bit up the hill, all the horses follow in a single file line!
As if the whole group had named the little girl as their leader, they set out in pursuit of the strange two-legged human. When the girl realizes it, she starts running! The horses embark on a chase, hoping not to lose their new leader.
Finally, the girl turns around and leaps onto the sled!
As the horses continue to crowd around her, the girl finally has had enough. She jumps on the sled and hurtles down the hill – only the horses follow her! They all gallop down the hill following the girl, resembling a strange medieval charge in enemy lines.
As it turns out, horses just love to be around the people who are nice to them!
Horses are able to form companionship attachments not only to their own species, but with other animals as well, including humans. In fact, many domesticated horses will become anxious, flighty, and hard to manage if they are isolated.
Whether or not the girl knows it, she has a pretty awesome group of friends.
If anyone intends to attack this little girl, they may have to respond to an entire herd of mini-horses! As we have just seen, they are ready to follow her, galloping, on a snowy hill if that’s where she goes.
