Internet saddles up as VP Mike Pence shares love of horses

&13;
They Seattle Slew him.

&13;
What began as a grown man innocently trying to share his love of ungulates with fellow internet users took a turn for the worse when Twitter users got a hold of Vice President Mike Pence’s latest ode to horse loving.

&13;
Posted Friday evening to the @VP account, Pence wrote, “Outstanding afternoon,” then quoted President Ronald Reagan in a speech he made in 1987 to citizens in North Platte, Neb., that is, “I’ve often said there’s nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse.”

&13;
Accompanying the message was an image of the former Indiana governor posing with some sort of steed.

Trump claims to have invented phrase that dates back to 1930s

&13;
Needless to say, the suggestiveness of the Reagan quote prompted Twitter users to take off for the finish line to see who could come up with the best response.

&13;
As of late Friday night, the message had been retweeted over 2,000 times and generated just as many replies.

&13;
Below are just a few winner’s circle-worthy examples.
