It seems that the majority of people think that riding a horse either is fun or sounds fun to them hypothetically. As people, we never really stop to wonder if it’s any fun for the horse, do we? Have you ever had a morning or woken up from a nap and you just couldn’t get out of bed? Remember as a kid when your parents would have to come in and shake you about a dozen times just to get you up in the morning for school? Today, there’s college, work, parenthood…basically, there are other commitments that people simply have to get out of bed for. Sleeping any further just isn’t a choice.
That isn’t the case for Jingang the horse. He is still living his younger kid days where he can just sleep whenever, wherever he wants and ignore his human parents. Jingang lives on a large ranch in Korea where he has a happy life according to Metro. However, since the ranch is too large he is expected to serve as a vehicle to help transport his loving owners around the ranch as they may need it. His owners had him for a good long while and they are just happy for the pleasure of his company, even if he refuses to do the work sometimes.
One day Jingang must have gotten fed up with toting his humans around the ranch and came up with a deviously clever plan to keep them off his back, literally. Jingang has taught himself to play dead, must to the amusement of his human owners. Each time someone attempts to climb on this huge horse’s back he simply drops onto the ground suddenly and plays “dead,” lying incredibly still until that human goes away. He even taught himself to stick his tongue out to show them he really must be long gone.
The entire show he puts on is hilarious due to the fact that if you watch the video compilation of Jingang playing dead that his owners put together you can’t help but think he’s got a little smirk right on his horse face. Even if one of his humans tries to sneak up on him and hop on his back, he still just plops down and pretends he’s gone from this world.
