An animal rescue organization in Florida had a humorous solution for protecting horses during Monday’s solar eclipse, and it has gotten plenty of support online.

Heartland Rescue Ranch of Panama City shared a photo of a horse with a bra strapped around its face, covering its eyes, KDVR reported.

The original Facebook post has been shared more than 180,000 times since Aug. 17.

Staring at the sun is always dangerous, but even more so during an eclipse.

Protect the horses from the sun during the eclipse. It is so much more dangerous when the moon is covering it, than say, on a normal sunny day...this valuable advice was too important not to share!
