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.

Finally, Charlie the horse dies. Shortly thereafter, the goat starts to slow down and it’s clear his time is almost over as well.
