Don’t anybody tell T.H. I wrecked his brand new 4-Wheeler today.

He doesn’t read my blog or do Facebook.  So if he finds out I’ll know one of you is a Narc.

I’ve been borrowing his 4-Wheeler since mine is out of gas and I’m too lazy to go get some gas and fill it up. Plus, his is newer and I really think it’s faster. I go out to the Trap Pasture every morning to check on Paint and bring him a treat.

He’s out there by himself right now. He doesn’t mind. But I like to go say hi and run the dogs at the same time.

“Hi Paint!”

He saunters up to me licking his lips. He knows.

Then he follows me for a ways back just because I know he loves me and thinks I’m pretty.
I think he’s pretty too.

I’m watching him and admiring his beauty while he admires mine.

Except for one thing. I forgot I had 4-Wheels under me instead of 4-Hooves. There is a big difference you know. Horses watch where they’re going and they do keep their feet under them. 4-Wheelers ……… Not so much.

 This is not the first time I’ve been bucked off a 4-Wheeler. But it’s the first time I’ve been bucked off T.H.’s new 4-Wheeler and tipped it over at the same time and prayed for the strength of Wonder Woman to right it back up so I didn’t have to call T.H. for help. That would have sucked.

But when I think about it……. if he notices the dent and gets mad …… it’s really his fault.

None of this would have happened if he would just keep my 4-Wheeler full of gas.

Love,  Cowgirl Red    aka  “Crash Gordon”

P.S.  In my defense I was going pretty slow and I felt it tipping and sort of jump/rolled off. I’m sure it was a picture of  true grace.

P.P.S.  FYI.  My horse and dogs all left the scene when this happened.  Traitors. All.


  1. Paint is a beauty! But what traitors! What if you had been hurt? Who would run for help and guide them back to your fallen body? Where’s Lassie when you need him? (Her, actually…they were girl dogs.) Let us know if he notices. 😉

    Horses and dogs know when to vacate an area. It is usually the blue air that surrounds the event. Glad to hear you weren’t dented or broken. You don’t have to worry. I won’t tell TH.

  3. How in the heck did you get that thing tipped upright again by yourself? Regardless, I’m sure you looked pretty while doing it.
