Hilarious Horse Photobombs Little Girl And It’s Caught On Camera
Everyone knows how frustrating it can be when someone photobombs your perfect shot, but when the ‘photobomber’ is as funny and adorable as this guy, no one is complaining. In fact, he won our hearts as the photo went viral on social media.
The photo was originally posted on Reddit where it caught the attention of many users.
The little girl was taken by the beautiful Clydesdale horses and asked if she could have a photo with them.
She was in awe of the large horses and got as close as possible for the perfect picture to be taken.
Her parents were clicking away while she posed with her favorite animal when the horse did something quite hilarious.
The horse tilted its head at a 45-degree angle and smiled for the camera, making it one of our most loved photobombed pictures!
The huge ‘smile’ that the horse did is called the flehmen response. The horse will curl back its top lip exposing its front teeth and inhale with the nostrils closed. This position would be held for several seconds and usually, the neck would be stretched and the head held high in the air. This helps transfer pheromones and other scents into the vomeronasal organ which is located above the roof of the mouth.
The response is common in many mammals and is often performed when the animal is exploring sites of particular interest, odors or tastes.
The Clydesdale horses are known for having a calm and gentle temperament and also being very intelligent. According to The Spruce Pets, “The stature of the Clydesdale is topped only by its easy going disposition. These gentle giants make very good family horses.”
