The guy that was going to ride was really getting into it and was starting to make wisecracks and such and I was hoping more and more that Ned would really tie one on him. Well, this guy gets on Ned and tells them to open the gate, and when the gate opened I pulled the flank up as best as I could but it didn't tighten up too good and Ned just started to run. I was afraid then we were going to get more ribbing than before and was wishing I had not come up with this bright idea. About that time Ned was wide open with nothing but a halter to pull on when he came almost to the end of the arena and that's when he put his head between his legs and really turned on.
To a kid the stockyards were like stepping back into history when Fort Worth was a cowtown and the big ranches would send cattle and horses there for shipment and distribution all over the United States. I could imagine myself as an old-time cowboy walking through the wooden-floored horse barns and into the big sale arenas. It was a sight I will never forget for the rest of my life. Just looking out across the horse barns full of horses and mules, the smell of Page 13 hay, straw bedding, and the business of preparing the animals for sale was an experience most people will never have.
I told him I didn't know but they looked like pretty good Page 15 horses and he remarked that maybe they was or maybe they wasn't. He walked on off and never looked back. When I was a kid grown-ups didn't talk to a kid a whole lot. If they wanted to know something and there wasn't anyone else around they might ask a kid something, but if they did, all they wanted was an answer and no comments. I know that would be hard for kids nowadays but that was the accepted way of things then. I decided since it was going to be a while before my friends got there I might as well look at some pretty good-looking mixed-color horses and climbed over into their pen to check them out.
