While we’re all get used to cats and dogs acting hilarious, we cannot say the same about horses. However, the lazy Jingang is about to change our perception regarding those strong, obedient animals.
Like we all know, horses are very powerful animals. Throughout hundreds of years they have served humans. After all, they became famous as a species because of their incredible power.
Jingang, a horse recently became an internet sensation. He is unrelenting in his bid to stop people from riding him around the local countryside. The horse pretends to be ‘ᴅᴇᴀᴅ’ in an overly-theatrical way. Every time someone tries to clamber on his saddle he crumples to the ground in a heap, sometimes leaving his hooves in the air. To complete the effect, he even lolls out his tongue and twitches his eyes while prone in what the scorned riders dub a “cute but naughty” performance.
In fact, the only real clue that you can tell he’s faking it is that he leaves just his nostrils flaring. But nothing breaks his character—nope, not even all the tasty carrots or sugar cubes offered to him. He’ll only stand up again once the rider walks away. What a way to avoid doing your job!
Footage of his amusing exploits has now emerged on a Korean website, showing the mischievous creature resisting every attempt by locals to ride him. It doesn’t seem to appreciate being ridden by others as a horse should. Instead, it goes out of its way to avoid doing its job.
Jingang’s Oscar-worthy performance has prompted an outpouring of support online, with one newfound fan musing, “That horse is a genius, wish I could just do that every time someone I don’t like comes near me.”
More than 82,000 people liked Frasisco Zalasar’s compilation video showing the horse avoiding its ‘chores’ by dramatically ‘ᴅʏɪɴɢ.’ The viral video was also shared a massive 630,000 times. Huge numbers like these suggest that people relate to Jingang’s antics.
