Tank

Tank

"A horse with a sense of adventure. Given a choice, he would always pick the new, unexplored trail. He was an escape artist who kept us busy upgrading gate and door hardware. He loved to visit the neighbors in the middle of the night and was accused of heavy breathing outside of bedroom windows. Alternatively, he would raid the garden, taking big bites out of ripe cantaloupes and stealing tomatoes."
