A horse with a knack for opening stall doors at a Michigan farm is getting attention after a video of her escape-artist antics was posted online.

The Saginaw News reports Mariska, a 9-year-old Friesian, learned to open latches at Misty Meadow Farms and she's been nicknamed "Houdini Horse" by the Midland-area's farm owners Sandy and Don Bonem. A YouTube video Sandy Bonem posted has more than 700,000 views.

The horse, Sandy Bonem says, "doesn't like to be locked in."

The video shot about a year ago shows Mariska opening numerous locks on the farm, as well as unlocking stalls for other horses.

Sandy Bonem says Mariska played with things in her mouth as a young horse and "she just kind of progressed."
