Sissy, a blind quarter horse, is guided by a seeing-eye entourage of five goats and five sheep at an animal shelter in Montana near Yellowstone National Park. Michelle Feldstein was prepared to provide special accommodations for the blind horse she recently added to the assortment of flightless ducks, clawless cats and homeless llamas inhabiting her animal shelter in Montana. But nothing could prepare Feldstein, a 19-year veteran at accepting unwanted pets and livestock, for the 40-legged, seeing-eye entourage that accompanied the sightless, 15-year-old quarter horse.  (Reuters)
