Don’t be fooled by their ‘tough guys’ act. Waco, a former harness racing horse and caretaker Donnie MacAdams love each other. Waco is living out his days on a farm in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Although he was an average race horse, there’s nothing average about his age – he’s 40 years old (that’s about 120 in human years). He wasn’t eating out of loneliness when he met Donnie, and although Donnie wasn’t expecting it the two formed a special bond, one that would help Donnie through his heart attack.
