I had not seen Claire the mare in quite some time.  Last week when I was headed into town I passed by the Duck Pond and saw one of the horses that lives at her former house grazing in the same spot where she was left for weeks a few months back.

I had even thought that perhaps they had sold her or worst yet she had died.  Glad she is alive and well and looking quite good. What a difference from a few months back when she was skin and bones and her flesh was falling off!

She even recognized me :)

She is gone

Have not had a change to update the blog but the following day after the mare arrived...she was gone!  Like Billy Bob would say "poof, gone...just like that!"

I did see a white truck by the corral and upon further investigation saw two men in their twenties walking around inside of it but I never saw the mare.  Made me wonder if it was that man's nephew and the kids cousin?

Do not know if to be glad she is gone or feel sorry for her not knowing how the nephew treats his horses. Hopefully much better than his worthless uncle and cousin.

You are NOT Walter :-(

We were fortunate to receive some much needed precipitation starting yesterday afternoon and most of the evening.  Went to inspect my water catchment system for dummies when a movement by the corral caught my eye.  I caught a glimpse of the tail of a horse and immediately got my hopes up.

Ran inside the house to put on my rubber boots and grab my camera.  As I made my way to the corral I noticed that the horse had a white patch on its face...Walter did not have that!

 I believe this horse is a mare.  She is big and tall like Walter but is in better physical condition than he was.

She has kind eyes but she is not my little Walter...sigh :-(

Just yesterday I made my way to the corral before the rains so either she arrived after that or today.  I feel so sorry for her already.  The corral is a soggy mess and while they seemed to have filled up her water barrel there is no food or hay around.

 I have not lost hope that Walter will soon turn up.

Where is little Walter?

It has been 24 days since I last saw Walter.  I have no idea where he could possibly be.  With school back in session...have not seen the kid either.

Hopefully they will bring him home soon.
