Video of leaf blower aimed at horse's face makes internet viewers cry from laughter
A very playful horse has fun while its owner blasts him with a leaf-blower in the face.
As reported by the Daily Mail, a video that shows how a horse has fun with a rather unusual toy has gone viral on social media, making more people who have seen it laugh out loud.
It is quite easy to find videos of horses playing with balls and other domestic animals such as dogs and cats. But seeing a horse playing with a leaf-blower is really strange, and much more is seeing it have so much fun. Follow us on Twitter for more @amomama_usa.
Although it would be difficult to determine who has more fun, the horse or the owner, who never stops laughing when he sees the funny faces that the horse puts on each time the wind moves its snout, turning it into a grimace.
The horse we are telling you about is called Sharpie and lives in a nice barn in the town of Jasper in Georgia, USA. “Sharpie has a goofy personality. He loves rolling in shavings and sounds like a whale when he does it,” described the owner.
“Some of his favorite things are the water hose and the leaf-blower. He takes his work very seriously and he tries really hard,” revealed Elisa Wallace, who originally shared the video of the horse on social media.
Although the horse seems to enjoy quite a lot with this particular toy, some experts say it can be dangerous to use this device to entertain our animals.
As reported by Quit Communities, gas-powered leaf blowers can be really dangerous. Usually, dogs are the most affected because they are the most enthusiastic pets of these gardening tools.
Some of the most common injuries include irritation of the nasal mucous membranes, constant cough, allergic reactions and stinging of the skin due to the pollutants emitted by the blower motor.
So although it seems very funny, it would be better to look for something less dangerous to play with our pets.
