Woman Takes Horse On Neighborhood Walk
FaithTap Staff 11/15/2015
Just like many pet owners, Carol Whitaker enjoys taking her four-legged friend Apollo on evening walks around the neighborhood. However, what makes the situation unique is that Apollo isn't a dog...he is in fact a horse!
Carol is very proud of her black Friesian stallion, who not only is a champion - but also her friend. She says, "Not a day goes by that I don't thank the good Lord above for my magnificent stallion, Apollo. He has a heart of gold! He's the most charismatic, fun, loving, respectful horse I've ever known."
Watching the duo walk down the neighborhood street is quite the sight to see. Apollo stands much taller than his owner, looking like he is straight out of a storybook. He trots alongside Carol as happy as can be. You can tell it's probably not the first time they've made this stroll (even the kids in the background don't seem to flinch in eye). After they finish one street, they even turn to loop a cul-de-sac. Wow, the neighbors must have done a double-take the first time they noticed Carol and Apollo on a walk...but surely he is now viewed as just another one of the neighborhood pets!
