It is said that human best friends are often dogs, but in the case of Donnie Macadams, he considers the trusted horse Waco to be his best companion. Once a popular thoroughbred racehorse, Waco Hanover now spends his free time with his best human friend, Donnie.
During the days, Donnie runs a government intelligence center in Vermont, where he interacts with many, but can’t wait to get home from work and hang out with Waco. He lives in an apartment above the stables, so the two were able to qualify as roommates. For the past eight years, Donnie’s free time has been entirely dedicated to Waco. The companion is experiencing difficult times, and Donnie acknowledges Waco’s credit for helping him recover from a heart attack.
“I can’t carry a five-gallon bucket of water because it’s physically demanding,” but Waco helped him recover, and a five-pound bucket was no longer an issue. When Donnie first met Waco in 2008, he didn’t have much appetite. “I didn’t expect he would survive the winter, so I wanted to dig a hole,” he said, according to CBS News. But this tough old horse wasn’t sick and was the only one.
“I talked to him for 30 minutes one day and made him accept the fact that I wouldn’t go anywhere. I’m your friend. It’s been eight years like this. Now they love to hang out and eat animal cookies.
Donnie is believed even in the longevity of horses — Waco celebrated his 40th birthday in 2017, 120 man-years. “In the winter, I sometimes went into the barn, went down the stairs, and leaned in front of the barn. He put his head on my shoulder, chewed, and chewed,” Donnie said. I told the news.
Unfortunately, this loyal horse died in 2019 at the age of 42. Donnie paid tribute to his partner and released sad news. “My best friend, therapist, soundboard, and the woman from Waco’s camera have died in the last few years. ” I never thought a damn horse would be a good companion. He was more than that. “
