|Bigshot, the horse in my original avatar, is my steady eddie. He's my cow horse and at 1400 lbs he can clear a path in hurry if I tell him to. He sincerely wishes I would learn how to actually rope a cow and act like a real cowboy although he forgives me for my lack of skill in the typical Quarter horse manner. Normally quiet and well mannered, Bigshot will occasionally reveal a sense of humor.
Not long ago I had a JW visit while I was grooming my horse. While she discussed God and so forth, Bigshot added his 2-cents worth by farting his opinion.
JW presents her pamphlet. "You know God has a plan for us and we need to live by his law."
Bigshot: "FFFFFFFSSSSSSSST". Tail flick. "SSST. Friiiiipppppp."
I keep grooming my golden boy and she continues her talk.
"Do you believe in God?" she asks me
Bigshot immediately butts in. Literally. He moved his butt over, raised his left rear leg, and farted blast that sent the horseflies scattering. My visitor blinked while I slowly curried my equine buddy. For the first time in my life I'm glad I let my hair grow long as I was nearly crying with the effort of holding back my laughter.
"I can see you are busy," she says and puts the pamphlet in my tack box. "Thank you and have a good day."
"Phhhhffffffftssst. Tsssst. Phhhllllllsssstt!" said Bigshot.
I nod and keep brushing his flank, and avoid all eye contact with the young lady. Bless her heart.
Head to head, Bigshot and I watch her drive down the gravel drive. My blond buddy licks his lips and sighs. I look at him and he blinks at me. I see that familiar curve to his lips. I start currying his flank again and enjoyed the silence that now surrounds me.
