This horse in a kiddie pool is downright adorable
He actually led himself to water.
With the Preakness coming up this weekend, how do its majestic contestants deal with all the pressure?
Why, by enjoying a refreshing swim, of course. And since the “diving horse” show in Atlantic City, N.J., was ended decades ago, today’s horses must turn elsewhere for their aquatic fix.
Now, Duke may not be Preakness material this year, but neither that—nor his size—has stopped him from testing the waters of a kiddie pool. Here is a horse who led himself to water and made the conscious decision to drink, swim, and basically enjoy himself.
Duke’s adorable frolicking has attracted more than 630,000 YouTube views so far.
Suffice it to say, Duke is clearly ready for water polo.
