"Easy now, easy. I'm not going to hurt you, nothing like that, more like a proposal. Atlanta is just down the road a ways, safe there, food, shelter, people, other horses too, I bet. How's that sound?"
Rick Grimes telling the horse about Atlanta[src]

The Siggard family horse (also known as Rick's horse) is an unnamed horse and the first animal (other than birds) featured in AMC's The Walking Dead. It is seen in the first episode of Season 1, "Days Gone Bye."

Pre-Apocalypse

Siggard Family Farm

Little is known about the horse's life before the outbreak. It lived on a farm where it was taken care of by the farmers and assisted in providing manual labor. When its owners witnessed the chaos and effects of the outbreak, they decided to commit suicide in the farmhouse, leaving the horse to fend for itself. It seemed to have continued on living and traversing through the farm fields until Rick Grimes arrived.

Post-Apocalypse

Season 1

"Days Gone Bye"

Rick Grimes discoveres the horse while seeking to borrow some gasoline from the Siggard Family Farm. When no one replies to his calls, he scales the porch to see if anyone is inside. He instead discovers, through the window, the decaying remains of the farmer and his wife who committed suicide. Since he cannot retrieve any gas and his police cruiser is out of fuel, Rick walks back to the horse and decides to ride it instead. They ride off to Atlanta in an effort to find his wife, son, and other survivors.

Rick continues to ride the horse onto Interstate 85, which leads him into Atlanta. Rick notices the city is quiet and there is no presence of anyone, alive or dead. They gallop down main street when suddenly a helicopter flies overhead. Rick follows it and turns right onto a street completely blocked off and swarmed by a giant horde of walkers. Rick forces the horse to double back, but encounters a second group of the undead. Rick finds himself and the horse trapped, and the undead manage to bring the horse down first and begin to devour it. While they are distracted, Rick quickly crawls under an abandoned military tank and escapes inside it while his horse is eaten alive by the walkers.

"Guts"

Siggard's horse is used as a distraction for Rick to escape the tank that is surrounded by walkers.

Death

Killed By

As Rick Grimes rode the horse into Atlanta, he noticed a horde of walkers. While turning back, another horde blocked him off. Unable to escape, the walkers startled the horse, causing Rick to fall, the horse then being eaten alive.
