Sweetheart and Katie
Its Bill Browning's understanding that the two horses on the right are Sweetheart and Katie

From The Pike Press April 21, 1993 - These are 2 horses from J. Smith Thomas stable - that are buried in the southwest corner of Crescent Heights Cemetery in Pleasant Hill in what is known as the Thomas Addition lies a little bit of unusual history. A one-of-a-kind marker, with faintly readable script that reads "Sweetheart" and "Katie". Altho it is not known when they died or how, Thomas purchased the memorial in November of 1905, although he owned several horses Sweetheart and Katie were his favorites. Story has it they never missed a house call with the doctor.
