Gypsy is a broodmare in Kentucky. Her humans thought it would be fun to introduce a small stuffed horse into the field. At first Gypsy is curious about the strange, non-responsive animal, but she figures out pretty quickly that it’s not going to be a worthwhile companion. So she does what some people probably wish they could do when they find out a friend is actually a total phony. She turns around, gives the impostor a super casual kick, knocking him to the ground, before walking away and moving on with her life.
If you want to see a story of a pony who appreciates his inanimate-but-cuddly friend, take a look at this tale of a foal and his teddy bear.
