When it was time for a police horse to take his well-earned retirement, his human colleagues gave him a tasty send-off.
Blaze served the Omaha Police Department Mountain Patrol for three years and to celebrate his retirement from the force he was given a delicious meal of watermelon, carrot, apples and other treats, served on a bed of hay.
Blaze, who has worked patrolling protests and presidential visits, surprised officers by seeming to only be interested in the hay on offer.
The force shared the heart-warming video on Facebook, and residents of the area shared their good wishes for Blaze’s retirement on a farm in Ohio.
One such comment read: “Enjoy your retirement, Blaze! Thank you for your service!!”.
Thank you indeed. Hopefully the cake was followed by more treats for this lovely pensioner.
