Friday Fictioneers: A Horse is a Horse

March 22, 2013

Friday Fictioneers is a fun, online writing community that is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Become a Fictioneer, or learn more, by clicking here.

This week’s photo prompt is from Douglas M. MacIlroy. My story doesn’t do justice to this beautiful animal, so after reading my story please click here and go read Doug’s touching tribute to Mystic as well as see some marvelous photographs of this stunning horse.



A Horse is a Horse

“Hello, I’m Mr. Ed.”


Not again. Shut up, Wilbur.

“What’s up, Ed?”

“Oh, not much. Say, Wilbur, can you walk around back and check on this little boil on my haunch.”

“Sure, just hold steady now, boy. . . “

“Just a little farther. There, by the tail.”

“I don’t . . . Ed, can you raise your tail for me?”

“Happy to, Wilbur.”

“Ed, are you . . .

Phhhrrrrrttt . . . Brrraattt . . . Pppplllloooop.

“Aw, Ed.”

Snort. Oh, that was a good one. Got that sumbitch right in the middle of the forehead. Well, if you’ll excuse me, folks, I’ve gotta take this hose and clean off old Wilbur.


Please click this little linky thing to read stories by other Friday Fictioneers. Do it. It’ll make you smile. Trust me.

    Another mr Ed reference – this week’s FF is turning into a tribute! I clearly need to have watched the show 😉

    I’m sure if Mr. Ed was on in 2013 we would get a scene like this. The funniest I’ve read this week.

    So the race is between Mystic and Mr. Ed this week. Fartastic reading this week. Thanks Michael.
