Happy Friday, guys!

This masterpiece of a video is almost three years old, but it only recently came to the Internet's attention this week and we'd be remiss not to share it with you. Here we see Archy the horse getting some sweet, sweet relief as he rolls around on the ground to just let it loose.

"Look for a good one!" commands his handler, and Archy promptly lets it go like Queen Elsa. Archy has an intestinal issue as a result apparently needs to roll around in order to pass gas. It sure looks like a good time.

Archy, according to the video's description, was a rescue horse at El Cajon's Rocking Horse Ranch. Their website says that not only do they rescue abused and neglected horses, but they also use the animals for human therapy.

"Ohh, so good!" says the offscreen voice before one final toot. We know what that's like, Archy.
