This is Bill B. He's the Electronic Media Director for a network news affiliate, here in Porkopolis, and, an all-around wonderful guy: the type of person you'd like to call friend. Despite being incredibly busy with work, Bill still manages to find ways to do great things with his free time, one of them being to care for a beautiful Clydesdale horse, Allie, whom he rescued, with his girlfriend, Stephanie.
Bill and Stephanie invited me to the stable, where Allie stays, to take some photographs. She weighs 1,800 pounds. That's more than 10 of me. When she walks by, the earth moves. Like, me, she loves apples and carrots. Allie was eating when I arrived, and was still eating when I left, two hours later. Man, that horse can chow down.

You wouldn't know it by visiting the stable, but Bill is a bit of a rock star, too. He's a talented and creative musician, having played the drums in a number of noteworthy indy bands over the past twenty years.
