El Mariachi’s “Thunder Road”
August 26, 2009
Something I just had to share – a very mini El Mariachi update I received from Michael Blake today (posted with permission).
Dear Pam and Tom –
Brief update. All five horses have been covering the fenced acreage with each other. Mariachi and Hope have filled out and seem content. Even Hope is less paranoid. Yesterday when I went down to feed, Tomas, Little Boy and Samantha were standing together inside a rear stall. Hope was outside and alone. Mariachi had disappeared. Worried that something terrible could have happened to him, I walked into the arena, whistled and called out his name several times. No answer. I called and whistled again. No answer. I started toward the open gate, knowing I would have to make a search, when the road to the barn started to pound with hooves. Here he came, galloping with thunder. He flew through the gate and came to a stop ten or fifteen yards away. The look on his face said, “what’s up?”
(For those of you who may be new to this Blog, El Mariachi and Hope are both wild horses. Related story: “Rescuing An American Icon“)
