Eleanor is now a very rich horse

Did you guys hear about the South Dakota rancher who won the Powerball? He and his family (the kid is only 23!) raise sheep, cattle, and horses on their ranch. Apparently they're pretty poor — they don't have a phone, and are several years behind on their property taxes.

An excerpt from the article:

Wanless told lottery officials that since winning, he has spent his time preparing to bale hay and doing other jobs around his family's ranch. He said he intends to continue ranching, albeit on a larger plot of land.

He said he recently told his horse, Eleanor, that "It'd be nice if we go for a longer ride than usual on a bigger ranch of our own."

Well, it seems he's gotten the means to fulfill his dream, and Eleanor is now a very rich horse!
