goat helps blind horse

Who would think that a goat would take up with a blind horse and spend years doing nothing but babysitting this animal, just because he needed help?

The horse, Charlie (yes, Charlie-Horse), is 40 years old and goes blind. She decides it’s time to put him down, but what happens? Their goat, Jack, somehow befriends the horse and starts leading it around.
