All About Me
They call me Whiskey, which don’t quite add up, ‘cause truthfully I’d prefer a good beer. Still, I reckon Whiskey’s a better name than “Beer.”
Some horses like to Tweet and Twitter like they was birds. Some horses like to make funny cartoon picture-drawins. Some horses like to be all up in your “social media” and blog and post all danged day long. Some horses also like to bang their buckets against the fence all day long, but that’s a waste of time. What I like to do is tell a good story.
This here County Island blog is where I tell entirely truthful tales about what I see and hear in my life on the County Island as a mostly sorta retired ranch horse who used to work for a livin with cattle and cowboys and such, now turned pampered pet backyard pleasure horse who’s stuck livin with a couple of semi-useful Ayrab horse brothers, who I call Original Coors and Coors Light, on account of the only beer worse than a Coors is a Coors Light.
Things don’t make no sense here, generally. But I play along ‘cause the grub is good and the work is light. You likely won’t believe half of what goes on around the County Island. Sometimes I can hardly believe it myself!
I could likely write an entire people-book about the County Island, and I hope someday I will, if it ain’t too far-fetched for a horse to make a people-book.
If you’re new to these parts, I’d recommend parkin your butt — pardon my french — beneath the shade of that big ironwood tree over yonder, and startin from the very beginnin. That’s usually the best way to start somethin, whether it’s gatherin cattle, or breakin in a colt, or readin stuff a horse wrote. I also got a nice spread over at the Facebook Ranch (http://www.facebook.com/WhiskeyRanchHorse) y’all might like.
And I’m pleased to make your acquaintance!

About My Bucket Gal
The bucket gal is the gal that owns me, Original Coors and Coors Light, and feeds us, and rides us, and looks after us, and loves on us, too. I reckon every horse on the County Island’s got a bucket gal of their own. She mostly feeds us on time.
