The Ghosts' Happily Ever After
They arrived at the Swingin’ D on a cold misty night in January of 2018. From the moment they stepped off the trailer, an ethereal glow emanating from their weary bodies, they were inseparable. “The Ghosts” moved in tandem everywhere they went; side by side they ambled to the trough, to the hay bale, to their grain buckets. They were so in sync, it was hard to tell who was the alpha at first (it later became clear, Romeo was the brains and Everest was the brawn). You never know if what you’re being told about a horse is true, but the kill pen said Everest and Romeo came from the same ranch, which didn’t surprise us at all. We wondered if they were a driving team because of the way they moved together.
