When I first read that a horse ended up at a bar, I thought the same thing. There's no way it's true. But lo and behold, it really happened.

How Does A Horse End Up In A Small-Town Illinois Bar?
A few days ago in a small Illinois town called Ashmore, something rather unusual happened. A couple of customers hanging out in a bar called Down The Street spotted a loose pony walking down the street. They assumed it escaped from its pen and was lost.
They were able to coral the pony in the bar so it wasn't wandering out in the middle of the street and in danger. As the animal was hanging out at Down The Street, it met many new friends and even had some water to drink.
Word got out quickly about the lost pony. You know how it is in a small town. So after, the owner came by the bar to pick up his animal. As any good friend would do for a buddy when they needed a ride home. I'm so glad it ended up as a happy story. It was nice for the pony to get out for a bit and enjoy life. Apparently, it does that quite often.
