We had a prearranged stop at the Fairgrounds for Ouachita County, only 14 miles down the road, so we took our time and enjoyed the travel. William Hickman (Hickey) arranged our overnight, an was kind enough to treat us for lunch at the Airport diner.
Hickey, our host for the night arranged a police escort for a couple of narrow bridges. The Ouachita County Sheriff’s Department was kind enough to provide it.
Shortly after we turned the horses into their playpen we had a minor rodeo. Several hogs are being stabled here at the fairgrounds. The past couple of nights have been cold and their water containers froze over. After I drew some water for the horses, one of the sows broke out and started running for the horse’s water. Dee and I herded the sow back into her pen before she excited the horses enough to where they would break out. With the horse and pigs watered, things settled down.
