As you travel throughout Pulaski-Giles County it’s not unusual to see a horse in every yard. In fact, horse enthusiast Bobby Bowers says it’s unusual to not see one. As soon as someone moves into the area and buys a few acres, he says, they almost inevitably adopt a horse or two. That’s why Bowers and his wife, Bernadette, moved to Pulaski County from just outside Nashville in mid-2007. Though his commute to work is 80 miles each way, he considers it “worth it, and more, to be able to live right here.”
