This video's so sad.

We had a draft horse at the farm where I work called Dexter. He and his partner had been abandoned, and Dex was left with mental issues after seeing his partner starve to death- he'd be running full stop with a rider, then just stop, drop his head, and appear to be sleeping. A couple minutes later, after all kinds of encouragement, he'd start running again, like he'd never stopped. He'd do that with the herd too, and alone. I guess its something like narcolepsy. We sold him to another farm where he could retire and be ridden casually, where it wouldn't inhibit him or his rider too much.
