COBLESKILL — John Bagdovitz loves his job as a campus police officer for the State University College at Cobleskill. And a lot of that has to do with his his partner, a 14-year-old retired racehorse named Flapjack Attack.
Bagdovitz is the only mounted campus patrol officer in the SUNY system. He became the steady rider of Flapjack Attack — whom the officer simply calls Jack — in late 2008, after Steve Ackernecht, vice president for student affairs, suggested it would be a good idea for the campus force to acquire a horse.
