OK I'm back from the show!

My legs clinched on to his slick back as we went down up the slope. Every one will get it, I told myself, Someday it was gonna happen.... As soon as I was up I put the halter on Zanzy and lead him to his stall. "Alright Zanzy, I think after that we should be good for the day." I joked as I lead Zanzy up the gravel road. His pale brown coat sparkled with sweat after the run. After a few minutes of thinking of getting on I decided to. I "Indian swung" on to his back and smooched him into the canter. Bareback on a 15.2 hh horse I turned around and took him back up the long, never ending driveway. It seemed like forever just to get to the group of people on there dead broke appy's and paints. I starting jogging when I got to the group. "Where have you been?" I heard from the middle of the group. "No where, here, there, everywhere." I chuckled.
TBC...

"That horse...!" I heard, "I he the White Buckskin?!" "Yup" I whispered, "'The' Zanzibar!" I smiled a perky smile. We jogged toward the barn. As I lead the group I heard whispers of "Her? Like she could be the one. Impossible!" Julia. "If that was me I would DIE!" Emily. "Why is his coat so shiny?! It's like the chrome on a Akal-Teke!" Will. And all other comments were "Oooo I want him soooo bad! But I bet to Chloe he's PRICELESS!" I put him in a lope. His collected neck and easy gait made everyone open mouthed. When we were back at the barn everyone ran to his stall. Comments like "Can I go in his stall?" and "Can I pleeeeese ride him?" surrounded me. Julia, the biggest snob in rural Nevada shoved her way through the crowd and said "Listen girl, I want to ride your horse. There is no threat. If I fall, I fall, no catch." A chance to laugh at Julia.... I thought, Hmm, I'll take the chance! I replied, "SURE!" and grabbed him. "OK everyone! GO now! See ya!" soon every one was gone and Zanzy was tacked up. Julia hopped on my boy. He immediately reared up and took Julia off. He ran towards me, shaking. "YOU HURT MY HORSE!" I yelled. "What do you mean? He had his ears back!" "And that's a good reason to WHIP a horse and make them bleed?" I looked at Zanzy's haunches. His hind end flinched at the slightest touch. "Sorry boy," I said, "I shouldn't have done that."

It's really good. I think once you are done with it, you should go back and ad more. Right now it moves really quickly from finding the mustang to catching him to stalling him to riding him. But get it all down while it's in your head and then go back and tie it all together.

I'm enjoying it.

Ok, thanks. I thought about that as I read it, so when I finish I'll add more. I was about to type an hour ago, but it's too busy here at the shop!

It's hard because you have to be in "the mood" to type a story. It's really good and like I said, you can add filler later.

After leading Zanzy into the stall I stood quite for a moment. I listened to the jingles of the spurs, the echo of boots walking down the long barn. I remembered Coke, in the stall next door. "Hey Coke," I murmured, "How are ya'?" "May I ride him?" I heard a small voice from the tack room, Emily stepped out, head down facing her feet, quiet.
After thinking for a little while, I answered "Tell you what; I'll give you lessons on Coke if you feed, water, and care for him. If care for him well enough after a couple weeks, I'll let you call him yours. I'll teach you his tricks, and how to use him...." Emily skipped off with a smile on her face, I smiled too. I kept brushing Coke, You'll love Emily, I thought, She's never ridden before, so be careful with her.

I waited out in the Nevada sun for my Dad to come pick me up. The horse herd-engraved bench was in front of the irrigated pasture. I had forgotten I turned out Zanzy and felt nibbles on my hair after 10 minutes of waiting. I whipped around. Zanzibar lept back in shock of my sudden movements. Dad's silver Chevy stirred up the dust on the dirt road. "Hey honey," He said, "So, this ranch has got rental homes all over the acres 'round here and the closest one to the barn just got opened up. How'd you like to live a walk away from Valley Farms?"

Sorry it was so short, getting bit by a dog REALLY makes you loose you typing mood...
