“One day, I’m a gonna ride the shit out of you’re bucking ass!”

Spring break gave Celeste enough time to enjoy life in her wooded hide away to herself.  Day in and day out she slips away to find peace and solitude in the woods perfecting her hunting skills. Since her father didn’t really talk to her anymore, and was too busy with Doris partying out, there was no need to stick around.  Today her heart is set on walking a long distance to visit her grandfather who she has not seen for a while.  She packs herself a little lunch and hits the woods with a happy heart.  It took her three hours to reach the lovely farm home, and when she arrived her grandfather was nowhere in sight.  Instead of doing nothing, she whistles loud for her grandfather’s horse Chief, and heads to the barn with a smile on her face.   She hears the big painted draft horse pound the earth with his hooves, and whinny’s a greeting to his little friend.  She climbs on the wooden fence and waits for the equine’s arrival.  

“Hi ya boy, been a while,” Celeste called out to the spunky horse.  Chief snorted out loud blowing his horse boogers in Celeste’s face sitting on the wood fence.  “Gross boy what the heck ya do that for.”  She swipes her face off with the back of her hand and wipes the moisture on her pants.  Chief flipped his lip up in laughter, Celeste chuckled with glee and tries to mimic the beast’s greeting. “Ya know darlin’ I’m a thinkin’ it’s time to break ya, what ya think?  Would you let me ride ya if I be nice?”  The beautiful big brown and white draft horse bobbed his head in yes to the little girl. Celeste smiles and states, “Now if ya don’t like me on your back, ya better not buck me off or I will never be nice to ya again.”  Chief pranced his huge hooves around the dirt showing off to Celeste his gorgeous shiny spring coat.  

Slowly she slides off the fence and stands firm waiting for Chief to calm down.  She takes a small step towards the massive beast reaching out her hand, and not looking at the equine in the face. Chief snorts out his heated breath while shaking his mane, Celeste see’s he is thinking about the situation.  She takes another timid step forward, the horse steps backwards.  “Now you stop that and come here, I ain’t got time for ya shying away from me.”  Chief shook his head no and steps back again, giving space between the two. She stops and steps backwards, “Okay ya piss butt, if ya want to play that game let’s play.”  Chief is alert and watches the little girl climb a tree.  The equine is curious about her intentions as he views the girl sitting on a branch dangling her feet. He prances under the tree Celeste climbed and dug his hoof into the dirt like a bull ready to charge.  

While sitting on the limb, she remembers a beautiful moment her and Ghost shared.  A tear of sadness in memory slowly slides down her cheek.  She wipes the wetness away and says to her friend who passed in Alabama, “I miss ya something seriously boy. I long for us to be together again my friend.”  Celeste is deep in thought sitting on her branch when Chief positions himself under her, and stretches his head upwards towards Celeste’s tennis shoes and bites the tip of her shoe.  “Ouch, damn it,” she bellows out and looses her seat on the branch.  Her eyes are wide with realization and fear when she begins to fall backwards.

Celeste screams out loud falling to her doom when she lands on the back of the draft horse facing his rear end.  For a split second both are stunned to silence.  She dare not move knowing the colt could bolt in fear at any given minute.  Celeste feels the shivering of his massive body as she sat on his back backwards.  She is about to slide off his huge body when the beast took off.  Unable to hang on, she immediately grabs his tri-colored tail and hangs on for dear life.  Chief ripped his tail out of her hands, and sent the girl flying off his back with a buck high in the air.  Celeste slams into a nearby tree screaming out in pain from the sudden impact.  Celeste doesn’t waste time licking her wounds she gets up and runs for the beast.  “You dirty dog!”  The horse took off with great speed through the woods before the girl could get close to him again.  Celeste yells out to the retreating wild animal, “One day I’m a gonna ride the shit out of you’re bucking ass!”  She hears a whinny response from the equine like he was laughing at her.  She smiles and grimaces in pain, and returns to sitting on the wooden fence to milk her wounds just in time before her grandfather pulls up in his dodge pick-up truck.

    1. Teehee…yep this sure did happen to me as a little tomboy, it was a treat to write about it especially when Chief is a true character and belonged to my grandfather who used him for only horse and buggy, and was not broke to ride, until him and I met! 😉
