Ranch Horses

He thought of the horses at Grandpa’s ranch. Three of them in all. One was called Cropper after the horse of the famous cowboy Bill Pickett. Another horse, a dapple gray, got his name from Grandpa. Grandpa said the horse talked to him, so he named him Palaver. Black Lightning, the youngest of the tree, belonged to Justin whenever Justin visited the ranch. Justin called him Black and called Palaver, Pal.
