PRAIRIE PAINT RUN DOWN, RUN DOWN:

As my Farmer and I drove our big farm truck down a country road in northeastern Kansas, this Paint came trotting excitedly through its pasture.  He put on quite a show, so we stopped the truck and watched.  I couldn’t help but capture his vitality & enthusiasm running in front of the old farm shed.

He seemed like a welcome committee for this rural community.  I felt special for a minute.  Then, my Farmer (as he always does) reasoned on the matter and determined that this Paint’s farmer/rancher must have a truck just like ours.

Ah, that made more sense.

But I felt no less special assigning the Paint’s enthusiasm to a food giver.

I felt no less important assuming my beloved diesel GMC-Allison transmissioned-load hauling type truck was the Pavlov’s bell in this Paint’s life.

I just appreciated his gusto and strength and motivation.  He was well cared for and cared to be there.

And though I was far from my Southern farm, this felt just like home.

      Hi SDC!

      Thank you, I did have a great weekend. Hope yours was great, too. 🙂

      We’re a bit generic with our pickup truck terms, I think. 🙂 If you want to distinguish a pickup from a truck in your terms – you say “semi” or “tractor trailer” for the 18-wheeler. Or you can say “18-wheeler”. Otherwise, truck is anything from a little Toyota to a heavy duty Dodge dually. Vague! 🙂 LOL

      Good to hear from you. I’ll be over to catch up later. 🙂 Best,
