They say a picture is worth a thousand words — and the photo in this story is definitely worth at least that!
And you never know quite what you’re going to get when you take a photo that involves kids and animals.
If you’re lucky, you’ll get an amazing photo for the collection— but if you’re really lucky, you’ll encounter a photobomb of epic proportions.
Lucky for us, a photo uploaded to Reddit captured the best possible outcome of a little girl posing with a majestic Clydesdale.
According to Time Magazine, there isn’t much information available on the circumstances, but it’s pretty easy to imagine what preceded the memorable shot.
This little girl was likely enjoying a beautiful day of festivities, spending time with her family while watching large Clydesdale horses walk in (what appears to be) some sort of parade.
When one got close enough, it appears her parents took the chance to get a photo.
The little girl stood before the majestic creature, awaiting the flash with a sweet smile.
But it’s the horse’s expression that really made the photo great.
Bam— the ultimate Clydesdale photobomb!
Definitely not what the family was expecting – but we are all for this. We just hope that by now she’s made some money turning it into an NFT!
Time reports that this amazing photobomb was uploaded to Reddit in 2016 by an account that has since been deleted. It is unclear whether this was the first time the photo was posted online or whether it originally came from The Wolf 101.5 FM.
Whatever the original source, people just can’t seem to get enough of the grinning steed:
According to PetMD, Clydesdale horses are known to be tender and gentle, but also have a spirited personality and sharp intelligence— characteristics that are pretty evident, if this guy is any indication!
After being uploaded to the web, this photobomb took the internet by storm, even being named the best photobomb of 2016 by the popular website BuzzFeed—and we’re sure this little girl’s family is enjoying the shot just as much as the rest of us!

We can only hope to be the subject of such an epic photobomb at some point in our lives!
