"Humanely" put down, I would imagine. Also known as "The Shergar option".

You would have to ask, "Why the long face", obviously.

Sorry, sorry - I'll stop horsing around. That joke was definitely a bit pony and trap. A better answer would be "Hung like a horse".

No?

Instead of being left alone in a field where it belongs, the guilty horse is fitted with an ignorant, superior human being (generally called Felicity or Tabatha) and ridden around the local country lanes until it chucks said human off and steps in front of a car, whereupon it gets turned into copydex.

Flying haggis has the best one so far, but TFrench is only a neck length behind!
Trainee, keep 'em coming! We wouldn't want to saddle Joe Woodworker with too few bad puns! Wouldn't want anyone bridling at our lack of immagination? Not to mention that the mane point of any commentry....yoicks!

Don't want to put the cart before the horse, but I thought you might get a kick out of the following:

“horses: dangerous on both ends and crafty in the middle”

― Sherlock Holmes
I would do more, but I'm feeling a little hoarse.

Leave it to the others now - but as my mother always used to tell me (true story), "If you want to go to hospital, you're going to have to get back on".
