Meet Smokey the horse, the gentle giant that thinks he’s a human.
Smokey starts mornings off by knocking on the door, opening it with his mouth, and coming into the kitchen for a piece of toast. Similarly, the equine would throw a fit when everyone else was wearing sunglasses but him, so they bought him some as well.
As it turns out, this strange little act became inspiration for an actual human boy.
While Smokey’s owner, Anna Louise Tayler, was going through school in London, there was a classmate who loathed wearing his spectacles. Anna showed him pictures and clips of the horse and said “If Smokey likes wearing glasses, why don’t you give it a try?”
Well once the boy put the glasses on, they never came off his face again.
The school ended up giving Smokey a special gold star for his encouraging example.
