2/5 & 2/6/10 - 2/5/10, Tyler, TX - We pulled out of Rueben’s place headed for a prearranged stop, just west of Tyler, on route 31. The morning hours were spent approaching the loop around Tyler, while most of the afternoon was used traveling around the city. I had the two Belgians hitched, while Doc had the day off behind the trailer.
Everywhere we went, folks were stopping to visit and wish us well. Several cars had little kids that wanted to pet the horses. The game little fellow in the picture below is Clifton Early. He just got out of the hospital, but still wanted to pet the big horsies. Even though he had just went through some surgery, he let me pick him up while he petted the horses. I have a feeling that this is one brave little Texan boy that is going to grow up with ‘the bark on’.
