Picture of the Week: Special friendship sealed with a kiss
Aug 12 2009 Huddersfield Daily Examiner
THIS striking picture captures the close bond between Owen Smale and her 15-year-old horse, Murphy.
Owen, who lives in Slaithwaite, was advised not to buy Murphy by a vet six years ago as he has a problem with lameness.
But she said: “I just knew he was the horse for me so I went ahead and got him.
“He has had problems with lameness over the years and now I can only insure one of his legs!’’
But Murphy is still strong enough for Owen to go out for a ride three times a week and she sees him every day in his field at Nettleton Hill.
Owen is a support worker for the charity Support to Recovery in Huddersfield.
This was formed when two other charities, Concern For Mental Health and Depression and Self Help, came together.
