Viral video of the day: how does a horse give its owner an earful?

CCTV captures the moment when a racer makes its bid for freedom

That orange cone inconveniently placed in front of a stable door… it couldn’t be there for a reason, could it?


Watch as a horse shut in its stable decides to give a passing groom a piece of his mind – by taking a lunge at his ear.

CCTV at Parx Racing near Philadelphia caught the incident as it happened, although we’re pretty sure the dramatic musical accompaniment was added after. Keep an eye on the man carrying the buckets of water. Judging by his reaction, this thoroughbred won’t be getting any sugarcube treats for a while.
