It turns out humans aren’t the only species who don’t enjoy doing work sometimes. A horse named Sugar has gone viral on social media for her hilarious tactics and way of avoiding any form of work. When Sugar sees any work coming her way, she quickly lays down and pretends that she’s asleep until she’s in the clear.
Social media users have been left laughing out loud by Sugar who many people have now called their “spirit animal”.
Horse name Sugar avoids work at all cost
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the internet brings you a horse who avoids working at all costs. Sugar has gone viral for employing the most bizarre tactic to keep away from doing any form of hard labour.
Taking to Twitter, a user with the handle Jim Rose shared a photo of Sugar resting on some grass while pretending to be asleep. The photo was captioned:
“Meet Sugar, she doesn’t like to be ridden. If Sugar is approached with a saddle she lies down and pretends to be asleep. Sugar refuses to open her eyes until the riders leave.”
The post has since amassed 433,000 likes and nearly 40,000 retweets.
Netizens can totally relate
The post was a hit with many Twitter users who could totally relate to Sugar’s logic. While some claimed the post was all just a hoax, others shared snaps of their funny pets
“Sugar is my spirit animal.”
“I had a horse named sugar. She never did this, but she was hard to mount. Once I got on, she was fine, easy to control, and never bucked or faltered. Got her when she was 4 years old. Had to finally put her down a month before her 36th birthday. Still miss her.”
