Video: Horse is so obsessed with snow that it forgets the danger lurking around
Rome, July 27: Snowfalls have a terrific connect to us humans we all know. Whenever the white flakes drop from the sky, we tend to feel a blissful life going on around us. From going for a long walk to creating that snowman to throwing snowballs at our peers, it's a time for complete fun.
Now take this. It's not just us humans who feel super excited whenever it snows but also the animals. And if you are yet not convinced about it, see the video above. It's completely mind-blowing!
The one-minute video from Abruzzo, Italy, taken on February 4, shows a sassy black and white horse feeling excited by the view of snow around it, so much so, that it even ignores its surroundings punctuated by a pack of wolves, probably hungry too, but just doesn't care. For the majestic animal, it's the enjoyment that matters the most and it is enjoying to the hilt.
The horse is so engrossed with the white nature that it even doesn't hesitate to go down on its legs, lie and roll against the snow-covered surface. The wolves look more stunned by the animal's carefree movement among them while those who take the video witness a rarity in the animal world where a playful mood dwarfs the cruel laws of the jungle.
The remarkable picture was taken by a professional wildlife photographer. What makes it all the more special is the bravery of the horse - an animal which otherwise is known to be timid despite its big size. Horses are always at the receiving end when it comes to predators preying on their victims but somehow, this horse defied all logic of Mother Nature and did something unthinkable: enjoying to the hilt even amid grave threats.
