When you thought you are the only one who can’t get their ass out of the bed without a cup of freshly-brewed tea, Jake the horse happens.
Nurtured by Merseyside Police in the UK, Jake is a Police horse who, just like most of us, is fond of tea. So fond that he refuses to start his shift without a cup of tea.
As per Metro news, Jake’s liking for the tea developed after he mischievously began stealing a slurp from his rider’s cup. Jake would lick his rider’s cup every day and therefore got habitual to it.
And Merseyside Police Mounted Section was kind enough to include the 20 years old in their morning tea scheduled. Because if they won’t, he would just still ideal waiting for his big mug of tea. No tea, no work!!
“Jake refuses to get out of bed until he is brought a warm cup of @tetleyuk tea,” wrote Merseyside Police on Twitter, sharing a video of Jake enjoying his big cup of tea. “Once he has drunk this he is ready for the day.”
Surely Jake’s liking of the tea garnered cute responses from the netizens. Have a look.
“I’d definitely describe Jake as a horse with a lot of character. We’ve all learnt his tea order – he’ll deal with one sugar, but is definitely happier when you remember to give him two,” Merseyside Police added.
