A reader sent me a link to a Tumblr post in which a user asked this question:
I recall at least one of you guys having worked with livestock animals. Why are cows so damn indestructible while horses keel over and die if mercury is in retrograde or a dog barked in Kazakhstan?
The answers were very funny, particularly the one that began:
My entirely half-assed understanding of Why Horses Explode If You Look At Them Funny, As Explained To Me By My Aunt That Raises Horses After Her Third Glass Of Wine.
Click over there to read them for yourself, and brighten your morning. Anyone who’s been on the receiving end of horsing around (the equine variety, not the human) will appreciate the humor.
(PROFANITY ALERT: There are a few f-bombs and the like scattered around there, but it’s still funny!)
