Mary loves to travel throughout her hometown of Jericho. You might find her at the local elementary school or at The Village Cup bakery or on her way to pay a neighborly visit to some friends at Freedom Farm. While this may sound like some people you know, the difference is that Mary is a 2,000-pound, 27-year-old draft horse, reports The Burlington Free Press.
Townspeople know Mary well from her travels and often bring her back home to her owners Lori and Bonnie Blades. She’s even been known to go trick or treating as Superhorse, wearing a cape with a big S on it on Halloween. She’s a favorite with the kids at the Jericho Elementary School who keep tabs on her even when she’s out to summer pasture. "It freaks the kids out when she’s not there," said the school’s secretary. Maybe we should introduce Mary to Mr. Ed who could stop and ask directions if their travel plans go astray.
