I can't decide if this is lazy, brilliant, or both.

I guess those two aren't mutually exclusive Josh N.

cute horsy! love the prehensile leeps :D

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 06:59 PM

Brilliant and sad. Definitely should be in the "cute or sad" category.

Get that horse a pasture!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:07 PM


Looks like he's munchin' on some horsenip!

Or is it horseradish??

That is brilliant. How smart and efficient to rest AND eat at the same time. I do this routinely. With a book, and a snack, in bed.

This ingenious, silly little foal happens to be blind. There are loads of videos of him and his ranch-mates at YouTube.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:36 PM

There are several WONDERFUL vids at this site! This horsey is blind! And he has an hysterical cute blind doggie friend there, too. So CUTE!!! :):):)

grass! it's a pillow AND a tasty snack!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:38 PM

What a cute little horseeee!

It is making it's way in the world sideways. (like the owl?)

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:40 PM

Brilliant, not lazy.
Warms the heart.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:43 PM

Gosh. There's a lot more to this. These animals are on a special farm for disable animals called Rolling Dog Ranch. So much LOVE! All their vids are must watches!!

Haha, lazy bum! Adorable, though!

Vegetarians do it best. :D

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:56 PM

Amy -- in the context of this example, you seem to be saying they just lie there and eat. I guess if the goal is energy efficiency, then you win, but where's the fun?

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:12 PM

What a smartie! Love this little guy/gal!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:16 PM

Another pet from Crazy Ernie's Factory Seconds!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:20 PM

Rolling Dog Ranch is a wonderful place run by a super couple who take in disabled animals. Cash is blind.
They're angels.

Great video of Rollingdog Ranch


I should apply for a summer internship :D

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:27 PM

I call it brilliantly lazy!Or is that lazily brilliant?

And the birds chirping away in the background only add to the peaceful scene.

I was going to be sad that Cash is blind, but it doesn't seem to be bothering him at all. Yay for Rolling Dog Ranch!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:32 PM

LOL even though the horse is already halfway under, he doesn't want to bother shifting all the way through. And why should he? Much better to just stay under the fence. Less work involved.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:57 PM

Foals have loooong legs out of proportion to their bodies. They can get tired just trying to graze, since it's such an effort to reach the ground; they have to spread their forelegs reeeeeally wide and stretch their little necks as loooong as they can go. So it's not all that unusual to see a foal lying down grazing; it's just easier that way.

For some reason they seem to forget when they get older...although lying down actually stresses the horse's body, once the horse is reasonably large.

And it's still amazingly adorable to see a li'l guy lying down and eating.

Hey,I look at this site everyday! It's da bomb! That's why I got your calendar,no applause needed!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:04 PM


That's a link to a video about Rolling Dog Ranch. Watch at your own risk; you will cry!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:16 PM

This little foal is so cute nibbling on the grass.

Since he is at a rescue ranch I wanted to include a link to another rescue ranch. Crystal Peaks youth ranch in Oregon specializes in taking abused horses they have rescued and pairing the horses with abused children. The owner of the ranch, Kim Meeder, has written a couple of books about the ranch. Her stories are amazing.

This is the link if anyone would like to see it.

This should be in the 'cute or sad' category!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:31 PM

I'm in no position to call him lazy... I was just lounging in bed eating blueberry truffles while reading, he is doing the horse version of that. :)

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:32 PM

i love the way he doesn't even bother to go much out of his way - just a little back and forth, not too much exertion. Reminds me of our cat Moonpie, who can't be bother to move when we open the refrigerator - she just lets herself be pushed along the floor like a dust mop, with an stubborn and unconcerned expression on her face.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:43 PM

JC Great link

Yay for people helping animals with special needs!

(still waiting for the "nomnomnom" tag)

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:51 PM

I just watched the video of him playing with the zipper. It's hilarious!

Why doesn't someone let him to the grassy side? (so he can lay down and essentially do the same thing over there.) He's in the mud... I cannot wait to look at his youtube videos (I bet he is a star). Thanks to commentators who gave the heads up on his condition/videos.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 10:13 PM

Totally prosh!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 11:14 PM

How come no one has said this yet...The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence!

The other videos made me cry....this place is truly wonderful. The "wobbly" animals remind me of my old arthritic horse who is in retirement and has similar neurological issues. These animals are truly blessed to have found such a wonderful home and to be loved for who they are. I swear every animal in the video was smiling! :) *sniff*

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 12:24 AM

@ Shaz the Original- I second your comment on the zipper video...priceless!

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 12:26 AM

Put a remote in his hoof, and it's basically me.

That's funny. Little blind bubby. He looks like he needs some Funyuns, dude. Whoooaaa munchies...

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 01:30 AM

Horses do this sort of thing frequently...it's cool that, despite being blind, this baby compensates quite nicely !

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 05:15 AM

I think it's very important in these hard economic times to remember places like RollingDog Ranch who give animals a second chance to live out there lives in peace and happiness. Every dollar we give to these non-profit organizations makes a difference!

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 06:19 AM

EEK! Did you see the vid of this sweet baby playing with the the zipper!!?? (erm, not what it sounds like) MUST SEE!!

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 06:38 AM

Wow, horses apparently are very smart! Anthropologists are always talking about how smart apes are, well I think they neglect to mention horses!

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 06:47 AM

Wait, your screen name is "Space Bunny"? Here:

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 06:49 AM

Thanks Theo for the flash. Sadly, I didn't even know cuteoverload exsisted in 2005! And I am so very sorry. I'm doing my best to make up for this trangression. Weally.

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 07:37 AM

Hooray for extra-good people like the Rolling Dog Ranch! :)

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 08:02 AM

IT is a happy accident tired mc colterson layed down by the edge of the coral and his wee little colty head slipped under the bars and as he was dreaming horsey dreams his nose smelled the grass and nom nom nom and voila a genius is born. He went on to teach all his little friends and the horsey school of proper under fence noming was created.

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 08:41 AM

Brilliant! That's the only way the poor widdle pony can reach the nummy-nummy grass!

 |  Dec 06, 2008 at 08:42 AM
