We all love animals, or at least the majority of us do anyway. So it’s not an unreasonable assumption to make that when you see one you’re eager to pet it. That doesn’t mean you’re going to bound over all guns blazing though.
Unless you’re this bloke and you go in all Speedo’s blazing towards a wild horse and get kicked in the goolies. Not ideal, tbh. Definitely not how we’d envisage a day at the beach, that’s for sure.
The footage was recorded late last month on Assateague Island, just off the coast of Maryland. It’s a place famous for its wild horses so there couldn’t have been much surprise when a couple turned up.
According to MailOnline, beach-goers are warned not to pet the feral animals but the man can be seen at the beginning of the video chancing his luck and reaching out towards the horses stomach.
The horse quite clearly didn’t appreciate the affectionate stroke – as you or I probably wouldn’t either – and displayed this by kicking out with its back leg.
Only problem is, the stallion managed to clip the man smack bang in the genitals causing him to drop to the floor like a sack of spuds.

Onlookers rushed to his help as he sat on the floor in agony – well, he was probably in agony because that stuff hurts, at least I’m told.
When it’s not wild horses booting Speedo-clad pests, it’s cows kicking bike riders into dirt at the side of the road.
The footage shows one deceptively agile cow charge across a road before leaping into the air and heel kicking an unsuspecting rider off their bike.
The bizarre incident took place in a rural area of Capiata in the central western Paraguayan region of Departamento Central and it has, slightly less surprisingly, gone viral since being shared.
In the video footage, a herd of cows is seen crossing a road as two motorbikes pass in both directions, nothing too strange, a fairly mild affair. However, things quickly take a turn for the worse when a rogue cow suddenly quickens its pace and ends up making a beeline for one of the bikers.
As the cow draws level with the motorcycle, it springs into the air, ballet dancer-esque, twists its huge frame and kung fu kicks the biker from behind with its hind legs.
The female motorcyclist is sent crashing onto the grass verge while the brazen cow makes his escape, running off into the distance.
