“Wake me up when the tea is made”, says every chai-lover every morning. Because our body doesn’t function until a cup of piping hot tea soothes our soul! A dose of tea or coffee is a must for making most of us get out of our beds.
A 20-year-old police horse from Merseyside is no less than a human as far as his chai-addiction is concerned. The horse who has been working with the cops for 15 years now, is known for not leaving his stable without a giant mug of tea.
He likes his tea with skimmed milk, two teaspoons of sugar and a little cold water, reports Metro.
“Jake is one of twelve horses we’ve got at the stable working with us. I’d definitely describe Jake as a horse with a lot of character. We’ve all learnt his tea order – he’ll deal with one sugar, but is definitely happier when you remember to give him two,” Merseyside Police Mounted Section manager and trainer Lindsey Gaven told Daily Mail.
“If you’re at the side of the stable and he sees you with a mug in your hand, you can guarantee he’ll trot on over to try and steal a slurp,” she added.
Jake also polices football matches. He has worked numerous times as a police horse at Aintree Racecourse overseeing the annual Grand National. He is set to retire next year. We hope the department gifts him morning tea for life as a farewell gift!
