Damn rustlers. They thought they had me. Showed them I was no one trick pony!  After they forced me in that trailer, I heard them no goods talkin’ while they drove away. Was goin’ to make big money from selling me across the border.

When they stopped for the night I made my getaway! Learned how to open doors when I was just a colt. Those losers were sleepin’ off a bottle of whiskey. I walked right by ’em. Then I started runnin’, it felt good to have the wind in my mane again!

It’s thirsty business outsmartin’ rustlers.

        1. ah but I did, he referred to himself as a ‘colt’ and from what I understand a colt is a young male and a young female is a filly.


    1. thank you so much Sandra! for this story and Ether! I will have to check, all though it seems to take a whille to catch up 🙂 I will have to check your stories out.


  1. Hi Jackie! it’s about time I worked my way back to your Friday post. 😉 This story is exactly what others have said – besides being well-written as always, it’s really cute. That horse is one smart cookie!


    1. Hey Maddie! I figured you would show up eventually. 🙂 Good to see you! Hope Rich is feeling better. All my animals are smart. haha!


      1. Rich is doing great, but I’m going down fast. Sore throat started this afternoon, and I’m seeing a sofa and a box of Kleenex in my future. If you don’t hear from me for a while, you’ll know why. 😉


        1. Oh no! take some vitamin C quick! Or take some oil of oregano capsules. It truly does help. Take care of yourself Maddie!


  2. damn smart horse and so happy he got away from those greedy thieves! the bad guys should have chosen water, like this smart horse, to drink instead of whiskey. serves them right. ♥


  3. Dear Jackie,

    This is one of my favorites this week. A good escape story, great voice, doofus rustler’s, and a horse with a heart of gold and a sense of humor. Thanks for writing this one.




    1. Hi Doug,

      I’m glad I wrote it too. I didn’t know about Mystic till after I wrote it, but after reading about him, I was even more glad I wrote it the way I did. Glad you liked it.


  4. good one — we had a horse go missing some years ago. I always wondered if rustlers or a mountain lion got him. Now I think he escaped and just didn’t know how to get home.


    1. there is more rustling going on then most people realize. You wouldn’t think so given the age we are in now, but it happens. Hard to tell what happened to the poor thing.


    1. It’s always a pleasure when you show up Frank! Ah Mr Ed! A golden oldie. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
