Buffalo Bull, sends in this Red Mountain Story.
A stranger tied his horse at the rail near the window of Slim Riffle’s Owl Cafe, and left to look over the crop of tomatoes. The horse put his head through the window and asked for a martini with a dash of horseradish. The bartender mixed it and handed it to him. The horse drank it smacking his lips.
“I suppose it strange,” said the horse, “that I should ask for a martini with horseradish in it.”
“Hell, no, said the bartender, “I like it that way myself.”
