A Horse Dies of a Broken Heart #kygenealogy #kyancestors #kentuckypioneerscom #horses

An incident illustrating the affectionate nature of a horse is told by the Germantown Kentucky Enterprise."
"Eugene Moore's noted horse, Villain, died last week of loneliness. He was eleven years old, and from the time that he was a colt, was greatly attached to his mater. In winter's cold or summer's head, Villain was always ready to carry his master on his back or draw him in a buggy. Shortly after Christms, he was sent to Kincaid to spend the winter, and his owner failing to put in an appearance for several weeks, the horse pinned away, refusing to eat any good and finally died."
