It may be surprising to some that horses can swim, but they have a natural instinct to start treading when they hit deep waters and readily perform a paddle-like action not too different from trotting. Horses are very competent swimmers due to their huge lungs, which help them to float. As horses cannot breathe underwater, they naturally keep their heads above the surface.
Besides their instincts for swimming, horses enjoy getting in the water, as displayed in a viral TikTok recently. The video capturing the playful horse flaunting its swimming skills has been making the rounds on social media.
Let's take a look at the viral video and what netizens had to say about it.
