This afternoon our special guest arrived.
Buffy brought her horse, Pistol, to stay with us for a few months. Pistol hopped off the trailer and sampled the grass.
The boys - Flash, Jackson and Mufasa - came galloping up to the pasture fence. They pranced and arched their necks and acted like a bunch of young studs.
Pistol kept eating the grass.
Then she noticed Flash. Buffy was our neighbor at Aspen Meadows before moving to Nevada. Flash and Pistol were in mounted patrol together and competed in trail trials. The three of us went on trail rides and rode on the beach; Jackson, Flash and Pistol.
Hey, Sweetheart, where have you been hiding?
Did you miss me big boy?
You're awfully good looking, but this grass.... well.... it's delicious. Excuse me while I dine.
Pistol settled in her stall and we had a lovely afternoon and evening with Buffy. She and her empty trailer pulled out our driveway, headed back to Nevada, at 9:30 tonight.
Thanks Buffy. Thanks for lending me your awesome Pistol. We'll take good care of her; feed her, ride her, and love her. Definitely love her.
