    You need over half of 538 electors to win the american electoral college to be elected president, so i’m assuming that this is a political thing just due to the number and colours.

    An electoral college joke? Not sure what it would be, but that’s all I have.

    A search shows that 269 is associated with animal rights. Would
    that explain the suited animal trying to stop the other from
    going over the fence? 269 was a calf (I don’t know the breed),
    and that could explain the different color.

    To add to Arthur’s comment, the calf, 269, was rescued before being slaughtered. Are the sheep jumping the fence on their way to be slaughtered? Sheep 269 appears to be wearing clothes, as is the whatever that is trying to stop it from jumping the fence.

    However, I think that john has it. 270 votes needed to win. The red 269 is trying to hold back the blue 269 from jumping the fence and winning. The blue one might be wearing a pant-suit and has “Her” hair while the red one has an orange face and “His” hair.

    Of course, we all know the orange sheep won by the biggest landslide in history, and all reports to the contrary are fake gnus.

    I don’t know if it’s oversaturation, and so my brain is providing details that aren’t there, or what, but having seen the theory proposed by Mona, I see it, now, too.

    As a nation, we’ve shot ourselves in the foot, so the best thing we can do is stay off it for, oh, three-and-a-half-years or so.

    The horse is asleep in the final panel - so the normal sheep-counting takes place while he is awake, and then he falls asleep but carries on counting in dream/nightmare mode.

    Not being American, I didn’t immediately get the politically significant relevance of the specific numbers (and indeed colours) (and characters) but it all seems plausible. Even without that, though, I think the idea of carrying on counting sheep while asleep in a semi-nightmareish or surreal way is actually funny enough for Nonusians.

    Building on narmitaj’s thought - counting sheep while awake; once asleep, horse immediately goes into dream mode, and the sheep become surreal and do strange, subconscious-created things.

    Mona is surely correct about the symbolism - there are way too many match-ups with the ellection for it to be coincidence. But I’m still not sure what the joke is.

    “I’m still not sure what the joke is.”

    Over three million horses voted in the last election, and the failing NY Times won’t report it.

    MOST excellent!! Party on larK!

    But I still don’t get the comic.

    Except Hillary didn’t make it to 269 votes. I agree with the explanations here but really horse should have made it only to 232.

    The talking-horse comic strip isn’t realistic enough for you?

    Was this published months ago? Seems a bit late for an election joke.

    Hi Bill!

    I love CIDU. Yes, this strip was published on the election day.

    http://www.gocomics.com/darksideofthehorse/2016/11/7

    I usually aim for the timeless humor, but not that day. Serves me right :D

    This was so obvious in hindsight — but I’d fallen behind on my comic-reading, and by the time I saw this…

    No, wait, no excuses: even without realizing hen this was published, I should have gotten this one.

    (and of course not realizing it was timely, I just put it in the general queue)

    This makes more a lot more sense as a comic published before the election was decided.
