Back to my horse in the snow. One time Dad and I were heading out from the barn to work cattle. Dad was a ways in front of Dixie and me (remember she was a small horse). It was winter with quite a bit of snow on the ground. Who knew that horses can get snowballs on their hooves? Dixie fell down. It was a gentle fall and she just folded her legs up underneath her and I had plenty of time to get my feet out of the stirrups. I pulled my legs up and waited for our slow descent to stop. When it did, my horse turned her head back to check on me! It was like she wanted to make sure I was uninjured. Once she was satisfied, she got up and began moving.
In other news, I am working on cleaning out my parents’ house. It puts me in mind of ranch auctions. Next time I’ll talk about those.
