Okay, I didn’t know whether to laugh, cry, or just shake my head….I drove past a stuffed horse or at least what looked like one as I was getting towards Fort Davis and I had to stop. It was made out of steel but the hat with ears out was real. This was the Thundering Hooves Memorial Fence. There were saddles, picture, and even pictures kids had drawn about a horse they owned now dead….many horses…even one mule and a burro named Pedro. It was odd. A dedication to a horse so loved the owner had promised the saddle would never be put upon another horse…it was on a log here. I wanted to cry and then, I spotted a dead roadkill Killdeer, my roadkill list doesn’t have a killdeer so I took a picture..forgot about dead horses and drove on.
I saw a phainoepepla on way out, hadn't got a good photo this year of one so..
