That's one of the craziest things I've ever seen. I think it's made up, but I can't be too sure. For one thing, squirrels routinely run along power lines and don't get zapped because they aren't grounded. Just like birds. I guess one could ground itself while on a power line, but I've never seen it happen.

That last line about people from horses... too much!

You want to know if this is real? My father owns horses. It doesn't make me an expert but I do spend time with them. So here's my take. There are a few things wrong with the heads them selves namely the one in the foreground. The shape of the mouth seems off to me. And the shape on the teeth. But then again this might be due to the breed. The eyes seem off. Not at the right place IMO.

It looks fake to me,
is the snow so deep that it covered the entire horse except the heads?
where are the horse tracks how did they get there?
if the snow is that deep then why do we see a path in the snow? wouldn`t whatever made that path also have sunk into the deep snow?

There's a town about a hour away from me called Horseheads, NY. I looked up the story in Wikipedia on how it got its name, but I heard a more gruesome story.

""The Valley of the Horses’ Heads'(NEEDS CITATION)
A twenty-eight square mile memorial, unparalled in American Military History, is the proud distinction that enshrines the Town and Village of Horseheads, New York. Nowhere on the American Continent has the writer, through considerable government and public research, been able to find a town or village that perpetuates the same patriotic drama laid at the doorsteps of Horseheads, N.Y. on September 24, 1779. This date hallmarks, the time and hallowed ground where lie, the relics and sun-bleached skulls (some estimates run as high as 300) of the American Military pack horses of Major-General John Sullivan. These peaceful servants of General Sullivan and his officers with about 5000 “ragged rebels” (as expressed by George III) brought forth gallantry, in the American Revolutionary War’s Western Campaign against the Six Nations of the Iroquois worthy of greatness to exalt these pack horses to any American Military “Valhalla.” Burdened down with heavy military equipment in their 450 mile journey through wooded wilderness from Easton, PA, over to Wyoming, and on up the Susquehanna River Trail to Elmira, NY, they continued north through Horseheads to the Finger Lakes region and west to Geneseo. Returning the same route to Horseheads, these military pack horses had reached the end of their endurance. Here, General Sullivan, through humanitary [sic] reasons was compelled to dispose of these partners in the cause of American freedom. A few years later, the skulls of the horses were arrayed along the trail by a few returning Indians. On this spot, the first settlers built their homes. This location, first known as “the Valley of the Horses’ Heads,” was later changed to Horseheads. "
en.wikipedia.org...

The story I heard was that it was during the Revolutionary War, but the Major General, got caught in an early winter storm (in November). The winter did not relent. The soldiers had to eat the horses and use their hides for warmth and shelter. By the time relief troups reached the men to get them supplies, all they found of the horses were their heads.
