A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no horse can climb on the roof, of course, that is, of course, unless that horse is bored.
"It looked like Archie had done a joke on Stephen and Photoshopped the horse on the roof because that just doesn't happen," Pat Downey told CTV Atlantic, recalling her reaction to seeing a photo of one of her racing horses standing on the roof of her New Brunswick farm. "You would never get a horse to do something like that."
The honest-to-goodness photo, snapped by Pat's brother-in-law Archie, was taken just before the colt was successfully brought down off his high horse.
Stephen, Pat's husband, believes Must Win got on the roof by trotting up a "small knoll" behind the couple's garage. He was alone at the time, with the rest of his friends off horsing around in Saint John.
