DLM00322 Lorraine "Rainy" Melgosa gives "Lady" a quick bath as she prepares the horse to pull the hearse in a funeral for her predecessor, another draught horse named "Mike" that carried caskets at over 500 funerals during the last 13 years. Melgosa said that Mike and Lady were very close. Before Mike died Melgosa said she used Lady at a funeral and she didn't do so well. Then after Mike was gone she said she used her again and Lady performed wonderfully. She said her son said that Mike must have had a talk with Lady. Melgosa agrees. "I can see Mike's spirit in her now" Melgosa said. (DARIN MCGREGOR/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **Lorraine Melgosa (cq)
