I like this comic, I think I will take it home and put it in a mayonnaise jar with a stick and a leaf.
that because what its used to. you should also poke some holes in to top because it is also used to air
and it will be happy in its 16oz world. (those are some Mitch Hedburg jokes there)
Yea, i knew it was from some where, it was stuck in my head for a while. Ha, i knew i wasn’t clever. Good comedian that Mitch Hedberg shame he dead
lol!! (mitch hedberg quote)
(I’ll post a proper comment when I stop laughing.)
The media is responsible for a lot of stereotypes.
Also: the horses names are MADE OF WIN (horrible pun intended)
lol, Action replay. I love these horses.
Heck, I love this comic xP
LOL XD awesome awesome names for the horses and just all around awesomeness in this strip in general.
@sparra: … to recreate what it’s used to. It’s been a while since I heard a Mitch reference.
Another vote for great horse names and cool horse characters!
Love Money for Nothing/Action Replays line of “We ALSO get that alot!”
As for the bovine indifference to Grape….. it is pure evil indifference, I swear…. cows are evil under those bovine expressions of boredom!
you have no idea just how evil they are till you’ve lived on a farm that has some….pure evil
Grape and Peanut are portrayed so small in this strip
horses are big! an these are not even draft breeds
the black horse still has no name yet?
also bad bad grape XD
Easy Money, Action Replay, and Made of Win has gone back to the stables. Thats the three.
I’M GONNA EAT YOUR INNARDS!
Hee hee. Ah, cows. So indifferent… there’s a cow at the local college here with a window in its side so you can see the digestive system at work. Don’t bother it none.
If I may, can I make a slight art suggestion?
I’d delete the black outlines of the horses where they meet the boards that are in front of them… or extend that black outline to the entire length of said boards. The effect as it is is a little perspective-bending, making the horses look like parts in front of the boards rather than behind them. It’s kinda pronounced on… uh… the one on the far right.
Do love the new style of background!
the Ohio state unv.? I can’t believe that cow is still alive..
altho they could have put the peep window in a new cow too..
funny that the media should portrait horses as dumb four-legged bycicles. I remember so many TV shows and movies where the horse’s intelligence is underlined…
GREAT comic, this one, anyway.
PS – if that’s peanut’s first time at the farm, I wonder how he manages the barn’s overpowering smells…
He’s a dog. Even the common city dog will go find something that’s been dead for a week and roll in it. Plus those stables look pretty well cleaned out.
the… the horses look delicious?
That sentence is going to bring so MANY ‘nasty’ comments…ogod…
Well, in many cultures, horses are food. We just don’t eat them because they’re too hard to get. Especially in comparison to cows.
pss… I knew that, man!
yup just like here …. we have horseburgers, and hot horse, and horse weeners and …lol
anways awesome comic !!! this one is right up there at top5, next to the cat fursuit ones
It’s supposedly why Europeans had to bring horses over when they first came to the Americas. The horses that existed in the Americas in pre-columbian times were so tasty to people, they hunted the horses to extinction!
(And I can make that joke because I’m part French. And Cajun.
Horse meat is often made into dog food.
There was a recent bill passed that made it illegal to sell horses for consumption whether it be for human or animal. T. Boon Pickens is one of the guys that supported this legislation (those who live in the midwest (such as Texas), might recognize this guy.
Not entirely true. They still allow it in the southern states and they allow it if the horse is dying or has been crippled.
Wow, that was just hysterical. That last panel just made me burst out laughing. Ah, I needed that, thanks again for the great strip Rick!
Haha! I’m glad that animal sentience was finally reconciled with a carnivorous diet.
Hadn’t we done that already? Back with “Mouse Mouse Revolution”?
Those horses do look tasty…
pss… I knew that, man!
Sorry, forgot to add great post! Can’t wait to see your next post!
hahaha i luv the last panel
So thats why Peanut wasn’t in the last strip…atleast he is being honest :3
Nightmare Fuel: AVERTED!
… Though having talking animals who are forced to carry people around on their backs and liev in tiny wooden boxes is still more disturbing than just pets… >_>
… A little.
HORSES HORSES HORSES WHEEEEEEEE!!!!
Was so waiting for the day horses appeared in this comic Not disappointed
The gray totally reminds me of my young horse Dom with his expressions hehe…
oO why did he think the horses were delicious? Do dogs normally eat horses??
mebbe it’s something instinctive. I remember when I was walking my first dog, a husky, and we met a police horse patrol. My dog just froze and stood there with huuuge eyes, staring at them and licked his chops once. I was positive he wanted to grab the horse and bring him home as lunch.
The horses do say all ungulates. Dogs descend from wolves. And what do wolves eat in the wild? Deer, buffalo, etc…. which are ungulates!
Dog food contains horse meat. Didn’t you know that?
Will talking dog food be making an appearance at some point in this storyline? OoO
Also they do make horses into doggie kibble. And they also put them into dog biscuits.
cheezburger not ripe yet
I can see Grape being chased as well haha
is moneu for nothing the black horse? HE’S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!
This comic is funny AND educational; I didn’t know that the ungulates included horses!
For the most part, ungulates are any animal that have hooves on their feet. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ungulate
“They come down and expect ALL hoofed animals to be blithering idiots….”
As a deer, I’m not sure what to think about that line.
It’s only for domestication
there are farmed deer. usually red deer, an reindeer
I love the names of the horses. Action Replay and Made of Win are the best XD.
Actually the horses names are Action Replay, Made Of Win, and Money For Nothing
heheheh… Grape is slightly evil.
“You guys look delicious” said the dog with food for a name.
No horsing around… They are regal and intelligent animals.
Besides, Cow’s are overrated and Sheep… Sheep are just stupid.
No.. I mean it. What other animal stands out in the blazing sun, 2 feet from shade, and dies of heat stroke? Sheep! Seen it happen! Sheep are just so… Baaaaa
yah, sheep will follow each other over a cliff, just one after the other. could you imagine finding the pile of meat and wool after that?
HAHAHA im gonna eat your innards oh and te cows like “whatever”
I’m gonna eat your innards!!! *pause* COMMON YOU STUPID COW!! BE INTERESTING!!!
Those have got to be the most awesome names for racehorses ever.
I suppose that Mr. Ed would not be so special in a world where horses actually CAN talk.
Yeah, but which is Action Replay and which is Money For Nothing?
AR seems like he’d be the black one to me…
ROFL, Grape has a way with words!!!
Very frank and straight foreward. No misunderstanding that lingo.
Come a long way since Mr. Ed…
Oh i just thought… Since pets live to twice their normal age does that mean horses can live to their 80’s. I mean I had a horse that lived to 42 years old so in this universe they could live double that?
also makes you wonder if the humans live double as well.
The pets live twice as long because their physiology is different — they are upright bipeds (most of the time)
You are half right. They live longer, but not because they are bipeds.
In short, they have humanoid bodies, which means they will act a lot like humans, and exert less energy through the use of tools. The intellect they share with quadrupeds (and the many, many other categoricals among the animal kingdom) may also serve to lengthen their lives. These other animals, however, are likely to experience a compromise in their longevity.
Yet, I don’t think they care. It’s a horse’s life- they’re just living it.
However horses are not always the smartest critters..
they will allow themselves to be worked to death, really they will keep pulling in the harness until they fall dead..
Now, donkeys an mules, will stop an rest.. hence the stuborness.. I’m on break, go plow it yourself..
Is that a sign of stupidity, or an over-developed sense of loyalty/obedience?
Soldiers in wars have marched into obvious death-traps before, with no hope of accomplishing anything…
the horses need there to be a remake of Mr. Ed, that would totally help their image!
This Friday is Cow Appreciation Day – don’t forget!
“You guys do look delicious”, he said…!
BRB, gotta choke down an incoming gag XD
*makes cowburgers for Grape*
yes, blame the media for everything, for it is true! and poor Grape, words have no effect on the cow. after living on a farm for so long, i know one thing is true, cows sure like to wait until you’re least expecting them, and then they bowl you right over like a pin…little buggars
I’m with Wolfspawn on this one.
