Wild horses “run on the water” in a bizarre optical illusion

A startling video showing two wild horses “walking on water” has caused a furore on social media.

The viral clip was captured last month of Kelli Rogers paddling with her two grandchildren on the Salt River in Tonto National Forest, Arizona.

During the expedition, the intrepid Nana noticed the two majestic animals standing in the shallows of the river and pulled out her cell phone to film them.

Rogers was stunned when she viewed the footage and saw that the horses appeared to be floating on the surface of the water.

“There’s an illusion that they [the horses] were the ones who were floating or paddling, not us,” Rogers told Kennedy News.

The 58-year-old decided to share the optical illusion video on social media, where it quickly went viral, garnering 8.3 million views on TikTok alone. The footage also inspired hundreds of humorous comments.

“Are the two horses named JESUS ​​& CHRISTUS?” asked one viewer, claiming the clip had biblical overtones.

“You can’t watch this unless you’re sober!” another cheekily added.

Little could it be imagined that Rogers was the one floating down the river while the horses stood still.

“It’s like you’re parking and the car next to you is moving and you think your car is moving,” explained one viewer.

“It took me five views to process what was going on,” admitted another, while a third just couldn’t believe his eyes.

“I don’t understand at all,” they whinnied.
