This is the second of my stories to be published by Red Dashboard publishing and available on Amazon.com. As was my book, Sunset “Gold” Canyon, Wildfire on the Brazos is one in a series of short stories in the revived “Dime Novel” series. These may well become collector items.
I visited a ranch in WV that raised Texas longhorns. First time I had ever seen one and the rancher drove me around in an ATV so we got up pretty close as they wanted her to pet them. LOL
To me, Texas longhorn are the gentlest of the breeds. Nothing much bothers them except lightning and loud noises. 🙂
Hey thanks for this story, was perfect with my morning coffee! I’m behind, I still have your last two pieces to read! The next few mornings I’ll be back. 🙂
Wasn’t sure where it was headed at first! 🙂
Hi there! I haven’t seen you in a while…its good to see you and good to see your blog:)
I’ve been busy 🙂 Packing t6o move to Arizona in the next few months. Somewhere between Tonopah and Buckeye. I’m looking for a small hobby farm to put a couple donks or mules on. Maybe a horse if I can afford it. 🙂
Thanks for another good tale. Good luck moving to Arizona. We like Longhorns too. We have a cowhide on a wall with the speckles. There is a ranch near here that raises Longhorns and we enjoy looking at them when we go by.
We have the original longhorn down here in Fl. We call ’em Cracker cattle. They were left here by the Spanish in the 1600’s. They survive on nearly any plant, do not need vaccines, are gentle and like the longhorns of the west, have pretty chewy meat. Thanks for the well wish on my move my friend!
Great story! I have a dog named Doodle. 🙂
Sometimes names just jump into my head… I chuckled on this one though. I thought it might be nice to give the ‘boss’ a silly name 🙂 Thanks for the comment my friend, it means a lot. 🙂 JW
