The Last Ride

"My horse, Tilting at Windmills, is like one of my children. I love my horses," Allen explained to several reporters on the courthouse steps.

"You're known as the 'Juvenile Jockey' - why is that?" someone in the back asked.

Allen laughed. "I haven't heard that one yet."

"Why did you take the horse on the freeway?" a woman at the front asked. She pushed a microphone in front of the others.

"Getting the word out about the injustice done to America's children is hard."

"The horse is in critical condition and can't stand - would you do it again?"

"Of course I would do it again," he said. "I love my horses, all my horses; I treat them like my children. I'm not sure what they are sayin' is true at all."
