A Poor Cowboy and Horse

rides further, he sees an upcoming cliff. He commands the horse
to stop by saying ‘whoa’ but the horse only picks up speed.

Panicking, the cowboy scream “WHOA!” but the horse only goes into a
full gallop. Then the cowboy remembers and tries saying “giddy up!”

The horse comes to a complete stop mere inches from the edge of the cliff.
The cowboy brushes the sweat from his forehead ans says “Whoa that was close.”

The horse, possessing survival instincts, knew better than to run off a cliff
and the cowboy did not face any repercussions for his poor choice of words.
