It’s 2014, which means it’s time to say “sayonara” to the snake and holler a great big “hello” to the horse. The year’s been off to a pretty boring start, so we’re hoping to liven up the first few days of January with a photo gallery featuring animals and humans wearing horse masks…it is the Year of the Horse afterall.
Everyone loves the horse mask, especially animals…
▼ The horse mask looks a little too heavy for this little doggy.
▼ Stop laughing and get me a carrot!
▼ He’s watching you!
▼ Is this what sea horses were supposed to look like?
▼ Just eating some grass…
▼ Aww, what a sad beagle horsey.
▼ This somehow actually looks proportionate.
▼ Even the deer in Nara can’t help but be attracted to the horse.
On second thought, some animals don’t particularly like the horse mask…
▼ Run for your life little guy!
▼ What? You didn’t know horses eat cats?
▼Horse Kitty is not pleased.
Many humans seem to have taken a liking to turning themselves into a disturbing stallion:
▼ We’re sure there are some people out there who fantasize about bathing with a horse man.
▼ Why hello there, neighbor!
▼ Someone please make Horse Zelda!
▼ Horse Face is watching you.
▼ Sweet dreams, children!
