As the majority of you are horse owners and all of you are horse lovers, then you know that one of the things that horses enjoy doing is running around happy and free. Remember a period of time when your horse spent a lot of time in the barn. It probably got bored and the only thing going on into its mind was running at a very beautiful place or landscape.
After all, as much domesticated as they can be, horses are wild animals and their inner instincts lead them to such wants. It does not only happen with horses but other animals as well. It is something that you can’t take for them. If you look at all the horses who spent most of the time inside the stable are somehow depressed, even the ones who have all the luxury in the world.
Do you remember the luxurious place for horses, however, you could barely see any happy horses because luxury is not what makes them happy. It might give happiness to a lot of humans however, you can’t expect horses to have the same wants as we do. Indeed, there are a lot of similarities that bring us together, however, talking about lifestyle, it is completely different from us.
Well, the example in the video below is not a case of abuse. Charlie, the horse in the video below had a leg injury and he was obliged to stay inside his stable for a long period of time, hence, it was impossible for him to go out and run around as he usually does. He was indoors for around 2 months, which was a very long period of time from what he was used to and the moment that he was fully recovered so he could go out was definitely a moment that he had been waiting for.
You can tell by the happiness on his face that he just couldn’t wait until this moment. I really hope that something like this never happens again because it is not only dangerous physically but psychologically for a horse as well. Please watch the video below and share some love for the amazing Bucky.
