Commentator Bill Miles left the West African country of Niger 15 years ago, and left his dark brown stallion in the care of the village chief. He found out recently that the chief died, and the village was wondering what to do with the horse. So Miles is headed back to Niger to bring his horse home. He says he's always maintained a spiritual relationship with Niger through the horse; a part of his soul still resides there, and he's going to claim it to bring it home.
