Did I just write that? Yes I did. The Portland Police are testing and training a new horse for their stables. They found Murphy. But he has a problem many of us humans have: he's fat.

Portland police horse trainer Jennifer Mack has Murphy on a fitness program. Here's a link to Tom Hallman Jr.'s story: http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2013/01/horse_named_after_murphys_law.html (the video posted with the story is not mine.)
