Panicked Stranger Tells Woman Her Horse Died, But The Truth Has Everyone Laughing.

When an electrical contractor placed a call to homeowners in Keren, Texas several years ago, he had some bad news to deliver: Their horse was dead. But the response was not what he was expecting.

The woman on the other end of the line informed him that her horse wasn’t dead – he just plays dead.  Needless to say he didn’t believe her, and she traveled over to show him how “He plays possum.”

Check out her hilarious interaction with the talented equine thespian himself below.

“Why do you keep playing dead? Pinto, get up,” the woman in the video says exasperatedly.


“Quit playing dead,” she says, then mutters, “Every day I think I’m gonna have to get a tractor out here and get you up … You embarrass me in front of the neighbors.”

The woman finally tosses something at Pinto – who actually is a pony, not horse – and he begrudgingly rolls back onto his feet.


This is apparently not the first time something like this has happened.

As annoying as his act may be to his owners, we can’t stop laughing! And who knows, he could have a bright future.

Watch the hilarious video below of his possum act below, and share to spread laughs!
