Sunday night we celebrated music’s brightest stars with the Grammys. However, one act was greatly missed–the equine rockers.
From Stockholm, Sweden, we have the recorder rocker doing his rendition of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” This gray gelding employs the help of his handler, since hooves don’t do well covering the finger holes of the instrument, but he provides the vital ingredient of the performance–his breath. I just hope he’s the only one using this instrument, since the handler places the recorder inside his nostril.
Our next nominee is the Gypsy Vanner rocking out the keyboard. Eclipse doesn’t seem to need much help from his handler, except for a reminder to smile at the camera. I can’t really tell if this was a cover or an original song, so I think I’m going to have to give the Grammy for Best Equine Compilation to Sweden.
Would you take the time to teach your horse to play an instrument?
