Dumbledore the Mini is the co-pilot who steals your coffee.

It’s Friday, and you might be feeling like you need a hit of caffeine to get through these last few hours of the work week. You’re not alone. Baby Dumbledore, a Mini Horse in Australia, knows what it’s like to have a jonesin’ for some coffee.

According to the video’s description, Dumbledore was born nine weeks premature. He was born a dummy foal, unable to nurse, and he was severely underdeveloped in other ways. As a result, his human had to bottle feed him every two hours and he went pretty much wherever she did, including in the house and in the car.

Horse Drinks Coffee

It’s great to see little Dumbledore thriving despite being born with the cards so stacked against him. Of course, being handled so closely as a baby can make setting appropriate boundaries difficult as a horse grows up. That’s probably why Dumbledore sees nothing wrong with helping himself to that tasty cup of sweet, sweet coffee.
