WASHINGTON (AP) - When the cast of "Hot in Cleveland" smells horses, they know Wendie Malick has arrived.
Malick owns two quarter horses, Mikey Rose and Cassidy. She mucks their stalls and feeds them before going to work. She says her co-stars often tell her they notice the smell when she arrives.
Malick helped deliver Cassidy nine years ago. She slept in the hayloft of the barn for several nights until Mikey Rose's water broke. She says she ran downstairs and found a perfect little foal.
She bonded with the foal and named it Cassidy after the fictional cowboy Hopalong Cassidy.
Malick co-stars in the TV Land comedy "Hot in Cleveland" with Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli and Jane Leeves.
