Ever since I was a child, I’ve had a very tempestuous relationship with my morning alarm clock. Each time it buzzed, I felt a sleepy sense of doom wash over me, knowing that I’d soon have to physically move my body into an upright position. When I hit the snooze button one-too-many times, my mom would come in a verbally rouse me — nicely at first, until she realized that in order to get me moving, she’d have to be not-so-nice. All of that considered, it’s nice to know that Pinto the horse knows exactly how I feel. Embarrassing his owners by always laying on his back, splayed out for the world to see, Pinto gets roused out of his comfort zone every single day. Even better: He verbally objects to the situation, just like I did. If you’re the kind of person who has a hard time getting out of bed in the morning, Pinto the horse will speak to your very soul.
