Poor Farmer is confused. His horses are so exhausted that they sleep the day away. Farmer knows that they aren’t working that hard, so he’s worried that something is wrong with them. One night, he hides behind a hay bale and he catches them in the act! What is going on at night? Horseplay!! Lots and lots of horseplay! These silly horses stay up all night long goofing off, and that leaves them much too tired to work.
This is a pretty funny picture book. The horses keep finding ways to outwit Farmer and continue to have their fun. That’s a remarkable accomplishment since horses have brains the size of a walnut. Farmer gets mighty worked up each time he catches his horses being naughty, and the colorful art captures his frustration with a great deal of humor. The illustrations are cartoony and fit well with the lighthearted tone of the book.
