Pecos Bill and His Horse Lightning
|Pecos Bill was a very famous cowboy of the wild west. Many legends were told about him, like when he lassos the moon! This tale is dedicated to when Pecos Bill got his horse, Lightning. The Think Quest Team hopes you enjoy this story.|
Here is a story about his horse so sit back and enjoy!
Pecos Bill had once lived with the wolves who had taught him everything about live. It was a very different experience when a cowboy named Chuck came along and found him in the Never-Ending Desert. He thought he should become a cowboy like him. Chuck had taught him to speak as best he could (which didn't help much at all). He gave Bill some clothes and cut his hear. One day Chuck asked excitedly, " hey come try and ride a horse! " Pecos Bill thought this was inappropriate because he could out run any horse and answered nah which sounded like yeah.
Chuck tried harder and harder to get Bill on the horse. Still stubborn as he was, he wouldn't give in. Chuck after what seemed like an hour day finally went in to eat.
After a couple of days Bill was so talented they made him the leader of their pack. Of course no one could be the king of the range for that long without a horse. He went out to the open range to herd up some wild mustangs. He found one that he liked very much and threw a saddle on it's back.
That was Bill's first lesson of cow-punching. He fanned the ears of the mustang with his hat, rearing, back-flipping and side-winding. The cowboys taught him to yell yippee and ride 'em. Pecos Bill thought his first horse was too tame. He went to the ranch and found a golden mustang.
This horse was no usual one. Like Bill it had a mind of his own! Plus, there was no way it was going to let Bill on his back. The horse was mighty and after a long time he decided that Bill wasn't so bad. They became very quick friends. The horse was so fast! Pecos Bill gave the horse a great name to fit it's attitude. "Lighting, that's what I'll call you," and so he did. Together they rode the Western Range through the good and bad times and never broke apart from each other. For many years to come they walked the desert never apart.
