A young horse, left alone on a farm in New Brunswick while his pals were away for training, found mischief that made him news this week when he climbed onto his owners' roof.
CTV News reported Stephen Downey and his wife were puzzled when Stephen's brother Archie sent them a photo of their colt, Must Win, stuck on top of their garage. They thought it must have been a joke designed in Photoshop.
But no, their trouble-making horse really had climbed up on the roof using a small hill at the back, and they have the hoof hole to prove it, according to CTV. After snapping the photo, Archie told the broadcaster he helped the horse down using a long pole.

Must Win was unhurt and the family has since erected a fence to deter any other horses with climbing ambitions, according to the story. But Stephen Downey told CTV the horse was probably just bored on the farm without the other horses.
“He’s like a two or three-year-old kid and he was just looking for some excitement and he got into trouble like a regular kid would do," he said.
When asked if he knew what all the fuss was about, the horse said neigh, he just wanted to see the view.
