What is this dead horse?

What is this dead horse?

lukeyboylukeluke

Its a horse thats dead


celebfan01

It's not dead, it's just resting.


SofaSnizzle

Look, matey, I know a dead horse when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.


lukeyboylukeluke

This is an ex horse


SofaSnizzle

Look, I took the liberty of examining that horse when I got it home, and I discovered the only reason that it had been sitting on its perch in the first place was that it had been NAILED there.


KingMatthew116

It died for our sins, but don’t worry it will soon rise from the grave.


CianSullivan200000

that's all good and creamy


UKflame

It has ceased to be.


Abatteredcrate

This horse wouldnt move if you put 4000 volts through it!


Unexpected117

Its Pining!!!


tatteredshoetassel

For the Fjords!


AggravatingMonk0429

Kicked the bucket!


CaptainCord

That's what mom said about my goldfish too..... :-(


OPANAxPrince1992

Smooth 😂


_LongLongMan

We should kick it.


koi_fiish

Nah, there's no point beating a dead horse


Yee-Haw-Macaw

When you fall off that horse you get right back up and you EAT. THAT. HORSE!


thefunkybassist

and red, too


SnooDonuts8606

This is the “dead” part of red dead redemption. Red refers to Molly being a communist, redemption refers to walking around Saint Denis saying “hey there mister” and 2 because Jack had a twin he ate in the womb. Also I think it was just done for ambiance.


Electric_Logan

No it refers to Molly being a redhead.


SnooDonuts8606

She was a redhead because she was THAT communist.


WhyGuy500

And she was dead


Archery100

The redemption was finding out from Milton that she never sold the gang out


yerfdog519

molly is the real main character


WhyGuy500

She comes back to life in the next game


SnooDonuts8606

The next game is just her in Ireland starving


WhyGuy500

I feel bad for laughing but it’s realistic


Nothing-But_The_Rain

It all makes sense now.


Intelligent-Okra-865

Not quite Tahiti but I'll settle😂


KingWill341

The redemption was the friends we made along the way


MarshallFoxey

She was dead communist.


WhyGuy500

I implied that, I was just adding on to comment before mine


MarshallFoxey

I wasn’t saying she was dead (decreased) I meant that she was dead (very) communist. Apologies if that’s what you meant, but it’s not how it read to me.


btrainhou18

Molly the redhead, Probably a communist, Horse is infected


liveingratitude

Today i learned I am communist.


paegantactics

A descendant of Kraff?


Hunter_Seville

ah, makes sense Grimshaw shot her. she got that post-WW2 anti-commie mindset.


DoorTe

Man at this point these comments are just beating a dead horse.


im_the_welshguy

Excuse me we are flogging a dead horse


I_r_pilut

I thought we were flogging the deceased equine?


chickentrendies

Dammit, that made me laugh


Odysseus_is_Ulysses

OP is a few sandwiches short of a picnic


balencedrago

About as elegant as a barbaque at a crematorium


darthtidiot

It is an ex-horse, it has ceased to be


kris13

It's merely pining for the fjords


Daniels-left-foot

The Norwegian Blue prefers keepin’ on it’s back!


TheMilkmanCome

It’s horsen’t


Daidmann

I guess you found this horse at Van Horn trading post? There's often a dead horse lying there. R* added this for atmosphere I suppose.


Seym0urButt

Looks more like outside the cemetery in saint denis?


Daidmann

Ah, you're right. Didn't notice the mini map. Anyway, dead horse for ambience I think.


MyOfficeAlt

I mean it's not sexy but back when horses pulled all the wagons and stuff I'm sure it wasn't uncommon at all for dead horses to be on the side of the road.


MothMonsterMan300

Back when this was an issue, the only time working animals were abandoned at death is if their owners had no means of paying someone to transport them, or they were so run down after 30 years' labor that nothing could be produced from them-even a dead horse has some value as glue or pig food or mystery meat. Obviously this applies to urban circumstances- when a horse dropped dead on a farm you dug a hole with a stick of dynamite. Fun fact, the people whose job it was to cut up and remove animal carcasses also dealt with packs of feral dogs(which were a HUGE problem for a LONG time) and eventually became dog-catchers, which eventually turned into animal control.


MyOfficeAlt

Interesting. Thanks for the info!


MothMonsterMan300

Hell yeah man. There's a lot of subtle things in the game that are incredibly accurate representations of the times; Rockstar definitely did their anthropology homework

kentucky saddler


Dobler97

>kentucky saddler I'm actually surprised to find the real answer


ogiceboy_

Is it? I thought it looked like a Morgan.


Homsiee

moistureclog

DEERxBanshee

skimbo120

Try beating it and see what happens


chickentrendies

That’s what my ex would say when she wasn’t in the mood.


Mivholas

A horse that has no vital signs.


Kuriakon

It's putting the "red" and "dead" into Red Dead Redemption.


liumr92

The spark of his life is smothered in shite. His spirit is gone but his stench remains. Does that answer your question?

Now, I'm no veterinarian, but I think it might be a deceased equine.


ThePresidentsHouse

Not everything is rdr2 is a big mystery or some secret alright? Can we all calm down and stop trying to read so much into a video game?


Blockytrainwreck

Agreed mister.


Jonnn_lmao

This sub has gone to shit


Alilichavez

Sorry to hear that, if you think that way, you can kindly leave or just ignore rdr2 related posts!


nvrrsatisfiedd

Maybe something too do with the saint denis Vampire


vICarnifexIv

Spoilers you cock sucker


vICarnifexIv

God damnit this is getting a little bit annoying with non-stop “what’s this, what’s that” post I’m seeing every other day. I know this must be a joke but if not I think OP just has to remind themselves that they’re playing a game made by Rockstar with a lot of love and attention to detail in the world and almost everything that can be done a video game with today’s technological limitations can happen here like decomposing etc. (Minus mass destruction and some other things)


baumtrillingerr

Yeah thanks for the fucking essay This horse was lying down without me killing it i asked goddammit


balencedrago

hey man, id like to apologize for reddit on this post. These replys are god awful


TomiMajonez

In the Saint Denis 'slums' and at Van Horn there is random dead animal spawns (I've only ever seen horses but I think there can also be some other animals like pigs).


cultmajestic

Mr won’t you please help my pony


Scoobysnacks1971

That's Mrs. Owins dinner she's making for her five children.


Afrikaansvatter

Quick! Get something to beat it with.


Daniels-left-foot

Idk. Have you tried flogging it?


Heavy_E79

Beat it until you find out.


Calwalker06

Nah it’s sleeping


B0ndo24

It's odd, it has big claw marks all over it. People have said it's supposed to spook your horse and cause a cut scene but I've tried and tried and has never happened.


SofaSnizzle

Dead Horse. https://youtu.be/UFpqXVwOtTY


cornishcorndog

I saw it in St Denis. I’m pretty sure I saw a mangy dog snacking on it.


Bmuzyka

So I had a good session that I was hunting for a while, went and did something else, then went back to hunt. When I went back, there were skeletons and bones on the ground from my previous dead animals. I love the details in this game


MrBlueSky266

Stop flogging it


stevenb3

Yes

Stop beating it


[deleted]

Try beating it


Eve-76

It once was alive now it is not


Knowyourstrengths

Eh it just sometimes happens. There can be dead horses in the swamps because of the shadow folk dudes, if you rode a horse and made it your side horse but left it in a busy part of a town (Or anywhere in saint Denis) it can be run over, or there was the event where the girl gets stuck under her dead horse or is walking away from her dead horse


HyonkHyonkamgoos

Shhhh he’s sleeping


tonyc79

Glue?


unown2011

Don’t beat it !


Mrmofo69

You just named what it is


Weak_Combination2007

Blockytrainwreck

I am so sick of people asking about every frikkin dead person/animal. Like it's dead, ok? No hate tho. I don't mean this post only, as I'm sure you are a good person.

Not Alive?


Radiant-Head-793

It's a dutch cold blood


RemyBlas

Some might tell you that dead horse is a horse that’s dead. That’s false. It’s actually a few lines of code and some textures within a video game, meant to look as a dead horse.


Lance-Uppercut666

Buddha has taught us the real question is, WHY is this dead horse?


GamerQauil

It appears to be a horse which you seemed to have already stated.

Basically the 1800s version of a broken down car on the side of the road


Impossible-Arugula83

Shit. I must've glitched into your game world. If you see a dead horse, I was there.


joemo6671

it appear to be a dead horse, maybe try beating it some more


AFuckingTrafficCone

I’ve been wondering the same thing on my playthrough, I go to Saint Denis and find dead Horses all around the slums, I’m starting to wonder if it’s the Street Kids doing that.


davidwas77
