Horses In Heaven

Horses in Heaven?

An old man and his horse were riding down this dirt road with fences on both sides. They came to a gate in the fence and looked in; it was nice, with grassy, woody areas'just what a old horse and man would like, but it had a sign saying 'No Trespassing' so they walked on.

They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "Welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started to ride his horse in.

The gatekeeper stopped him. "Animals aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."
"What kind of Heaven won't allow animals? If he can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."

"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area'he'll promise you anything'but the horse can't go there either. If you won't leave the horse, you'll spend Eternity on this road."

So the old man and horse rode on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it: no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside. "S'cuse me Sir, my horse and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and rest in the shade for awhile?"

"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there, along with a bucket to water your horse. Make yourselves comfortable."

"You're sure my horse can come in? The man down the road said animals weren't allowed anywhere."

"Would you come in if you had to leave the horse?"

"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven; he said the horse couldn't come in. We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."

The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."
