In the month of March, near Eagle, Wisconsin, a big black horse with a rider made wide strides to cross the road down from my van. This was the first time I had stopped a stranger to ask for a Spotting Wisconsin interview. Cyndi Merka eagerly met me at the nearby stable to talk about her beloved horse, Ziglar. A year earlier around the corner from the stable at Old World Wisconsin, I had recorded Nancy Osterhaus with her two Clydesdales, Lou and Hank. Do horses have personalities? What do they like and need? Get up close with three huge horses and their devoted humans.
