I thought it was a dog when I first saw it.
A non-descript brown dog. I didn’t pay it much attention.
Three women were walking up to More Mesa and had it on a lease. I didn’t pay them much attention either.
Then I ran past it, and heard the distinctive clink-clop of iron shod hooves on pavement.
It had been a horse. A tiny little horse. A bit bigger than a black lab (one of those was wandering around nearby), but clearly not a colt. A one toe hoof too.
Not Eohippus. No sign of lemurs. All my speculations of a season ago have proven wrong.
Sigh. Bunny count: 12.
