Patches the horse is not your average equine. His owners, Robert and Herbert Thompson, trained the horse to ride along on burger runs in their customized Mercury Grand Marquis and fetch beers from the fridge.

The two cowboy-hatted "Equine Entrepreneurs" at some point noticed the horse always seemed interested in tagging along whenever they went somewhere, so they modified their car to make it easy for Patches to do so. He apparently lives for a good cheesebuger and has put down as many as five in one sitting, doesn't like Coke though. At home Patches will earn his keep by fetching a beer from the refrigerator and answering the phone. Well, picking up the receiver a handing it off. Seems to be a better trained pet than most of the dogs we've owned. [Youtube]
