Watching a cowboy walk his horse around inside a store is not something you see every day, but when it does happen, I would expect it to be at a Tractor Supply store in a place like Elk City, Oklahoma.

When a man went to buy feed for his horse, he apparently didn't want to leave it tied up in the parking lot so he asked store employees if he could bring his horse inside with him. He said, "I'm a senior here to buy senior horse feed for my senior horse, can he come in?" according to Robin Morris who was in the store at the time.
