Only in Texas: Horse makes frequent visits to PetSmart in Richmond


RICHMOND, Texas – It’s unusual to see a horse inside any store, but at a PetSmart in Richmond, it’s nothing out of the ordinary.

In a photo that’s going viral on Reddit, a full-grown horse can be seen with a young man believed to be his owner. The two regularly go for walks and visit the store to cool off, PetSmart employees said.

They said as long as animals are on a leash and are not aggressive, they are welcome inside the store. The horse, named Pretty Boy, is apparently quite friendly and enjoys taking a break in the AC.

He also likes to hang out at other stores in the Market Center, like Mod Pizza.

“He’s well-trained. Nice horse. Doesn’t misbehave if you know what I mean.” said Chris Dacosta, the General Manager of Mod Pizza.
