Hiltcher Walking Trail

Hiltcher Walking Trail
Horse Stable
Ink on paper

This is a horse stable that I walk by on the Hiltcher Trail. There is a small structure for chickens and the stable with the corral attached holds two horses. Ivy is interested in the chickens but the horses just aren't interesting for her, well except for the time the black one got loose and ran down the trail with his owner walking behind him to eventually put the harness (that he was carrying) on to guide him back to the building. Ivy just looked longingly at the running horse wishing, I am sure, that she could run free, too. Ivy is a greyhound and loves to run fast, but at 45 miles an hour she could be a mile away in a minute and not know where she was or how to get back home. So she is never off leash unless she is in an enclosed yard.

Wonderful sketch! Once I was walking along the greenbelt (when I still lived in Boise) and someone accidentally let go of the leash for their greyhound. I have never seen anything like that! Standing there one second and just a speck on the horizon the next! Everyone on the trail was trying to get their dog for them!
