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.
