When I opened the blinds I noticed Ramón (not his real name) who used to be Walter's owner throwing things at his horse. I was surprised and upset that he would do that. He then looked towards the house and saw me looking at him from the window and stopped.
I went to grab my phone and the boys food and went outside by then Ramón was no longer there I supposed he had left for work. Then I saw that the horse had crossed the street so I walked to the corner that is when I noticed that his horse was in the corral and that this was a different horse. That is when it dawned on me that he must have been eating his horse's hay so he ran him off.
When the horse saw me he crossed the street and came into our yard. That is when the girl horse started to neigh loudly and he went to her side and was there for a long time.
I had to drive into town to run errands so I let them be. As I went by HEB I noticed that gasoline had gone up to $2.299 an increase of .12 cents. When I passed Walmart I was delighted to see that their parking lot was almost empty so stopped to pick up a couple of groceries.
While I would only save .01 cent per gallon decided to fill-up here as well.
When I arrived back home the horse was still here but this time he was grazing...who needs Pollito when I have Caballito (an endearing term for a horse).
It was getting warm especially in the sun so I rewarded him for his hard work by bringing him some water.
I recalled a couple of years ago that a Sheriff's Deputy came to knock at the door to tell us that there were two horses on our property who had been reported missing and that their owner would soon be by to pick them up so to please not run them off...we had no idea they were even here.
I, therefore, felt obliged to call the Sheriff's department to let them know I had a lost horse in our property. He took down my name, telephone, and address and said he would send a squad car. I told him the horse was not bothering me and I did not mind that he was here.
Grabbed a chair, my cell and the cordless phone in case they called. Sat outside with the boys in the warm sunshine. No one came by or called so I went in at 5:00 p.m. to watch the news.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
