A shopping plaza in Richmond, Texas, has been popping up in local news stories because of a frequent guest that the shops are openly embracing.

Pretty Boy, a chestnut gelding, has become a bit of a local celebrity for his frequent visits to the local PetSmart and pizza place, Mod Pizza. While he may stay outside the pizza place, he has been welcomed through the doors of the PetSmart.

A photo of Pretty Boy inside the PetSmart has already gone viral on Reddit. KHOU11 reports that PetSmart employees have posted pictures of the horse on Instagram, saying, “It’s not usual to see a horse at a pet store but for us it’s a casual thing! This guy, Pretty Boy, visits us quite often and we welcome him with cool air and fresh water!”

And according to PetSmart’s pet policy, any pet that is on a leash and not aggressive is welcome in their stores. So Pretty Boy is free to enjoy his time in the AC while he wanders the aisles.
