Hombre celebrates 30th birthday
Hombre, a Paso Fino horse, was the guest of honor April 17 when his owner, 10-year-old Sophia Allen, threw a party to celebrate the horse's 30th birthday. On her family's small Jessamine County farm, Allen honored her "best friend" with a small group of family and friends who gathered on the lawn around Hombre to sing "Happy Birthday" and to give him organic carrots, apples and horse treats. Hombre's cake, complete with candles, was made of oats, molasses and shredded carrots. Human guests enjoyed pizza and horse-shaped sugar cookies.
