Patrolling the fair from on high
Different jobs require different horses. Bob Anderson knows that better than anyone.
For his cross-country trip on horseback in 1996, he needed one that had endurance. He found it in an Arabian named Coach. It brought him from his home in rural Kandiyohi all the way to his brother's place in Pinedale, Wyo.
This year, for his 12 days of mounted security patrol at the Minnesota State Fair, he needs one that can handle the crowds. He has that in Piper, a 16-year-old mare.
