Robert Redford, star of the movie adaptation of Nicolas Spark's The Horse Whisperer, has nothing on Clarksville veterinarian Dr. Fred Lewis. On a superficial level, Lewis - like Redford - has sparkling blue eyes, a trim physique and a full head of hair. But on a more profound level, Lewis is a practicing horse whisperer. "I've always kind of communicated with [horses]," said Lewis, 80. "They respond to me very well. I wanted to be an animal doctor from the time I was 5. It's a good thing I got into veterinary school - if I hadn't, I don't know what I'd have done."
