Faithful horses drive owner to last resting place

On Feb. 20, Gerald Bruner and Thales Mullennax drove the very aptly named horses Snip and Snap as they ferried their previous owner to his last resting place.

Roy Bruce purchased the horses in Canada back when they were just two-years-old and wild. It took some time to train them to drive a wagon, and several times Bruce threatened to send them to the packers due to their stubbornness. Nevertheless, a strong friendship grew between them all.

Snip and Snap took Roy and his wife Evelyn on several group cattle drives, and walked in several parades before they took their owner on his last ride.
