Video of Midland horse dubbed 'Houdini' goes viral
'Houdini Horse' at Michigan farm gets attention for her escape-artist antics
A horse with a knack for opening stall doors at a Michigan farm is getting attention after a video of her escape-artist antics was posted online.
Mariska, a 9-year-old Friesian, learned to open latches at Misty Meadow Farms and she's been nicknamed "Houdini Horse" by the Midland-area's farm owners Sandy and Don Bonem, reports The Saginaw News reports.
A YouTube video Sandy Bonem posted has more than 700,000 views by Thursday morning.
The horse, Sandy Bonem says, "doesn't like to be locked in."
The video shot about a year ago shows Mariska opening numerous locks on the farm, as well as unlocking stalls for other horses.
Bonem says Mariska played with things in her mouth as a young horse and "she just kind of progressed."
