When working, this horse will occasionally say “neigh.”
Sugar, a horse, has gone viral after she pretended to be sleeping when she didn’t feel like working. “Meet Sugar, she doesn’t want to be ridden,” begins the original tweet by user Jim Rose, which includes a snapshot of Sugar reclining on her side in the grass as if having a nap. Sugar lies down and pretends to be asleep whenever she is approached with a saddle. Sugar will not open her eyes again till the riders have left.”
Sugar’s tweet has received 433,000 likes and nearly 40,000 retweets, indicating that many people have found their spirit animal in him.
Some users praised Sugar, while others criticized it. “That’s the horse version of saying your piece and walking away,” one remarked.
“I mean, a horse, AN EQUINE, somehow knows feigning slumber to get out of unfavorable labor?” said another. Does anyone know what nonviolent resistance is? Comrade Sugar, you are a master of non-compliance. Continue to be uncontrollable.”
