Jenny The Horse Goes On A Solo Walk Every Day For The Last 14 Years All By Herself

Outdoor cats are known to wander, and dogs expected to get loose – but in Frankfurt, Germany’s Fechenheim district they have grown accustomed to a different kind of ‘outdoor pet’ – an Arabian mare named Jenny. The effervescent white horse strolls lazily through the streets each morning, on the same route, with no handler in sight. For the people not familiar with the animal she wears a card that reads: “I’m called Jenny, not a runaway, just taking a walk. Thanks.”

Jenny has been taking this walk alone for the past 14-years, because her owner, 79-year-old Werner Weischedel can no longer ride her. Every morning the old man opens his gates and she trods along the paths they used to take together.
