Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKAIU) A lot of people have asked rue if I really did have a horse vilh a plass eye, like myself. Yes I (fid. And used to buy new, biR, brown glass eyes lor JNV horse. Yes, whenever my horse knocked his head on the cor- ral, breaking his eye, I used to go right down to the depart- ment store and get him a new one. I remember one day, they wera having one of their (abu- lous China sales, I got him a good eye on sale. The clerk gave it a little lap with a spoon. Ping! Jusl a lit- tle tap, ping, and it rang true. Good, solid China. Boy, that glass eye was beautiful. Now, I'd brush old Peepers down. His coat would get real shiny. Then we'd go out for a canter. What a pair we were, horse and rider, the sun flash- ing off his eye and me looking over the range for empties. Like II. L. Mencken used lo say: "Nature is E place to throw old beer cans." And I had to watch out for beer bot- tles, tossed ot Birdseye Banch by the Waterloo, celebrants. My horse's glass eye was bigger than mine. His was about the size of an egg, may be a little smaller. Just a bit smaller than one ot those China eggs we used lo put un- der the hens to make them think they'd laid one. This would spur them Into laying somelhing real. Fact is, one lime my horse look lu's eye out and carelessly left it in the manger. A hen sat on il, no doubt thinking it was her egg. She laved a dozen more. Well my horse was a fine animal, had a steady gaze, could look a wild cow straight in tbe eye without flinching. Kept bumping into things though. Always bad to watch him, Always knocking over things. One time he ran right into the and scared the heck out of me. Thank- fully, I wasn't riding him. Tbe horseflies used to come zooming In on him, crash. knocked out cold. He didn't feel a Ihlngl A beautiful little horse, he was, the apple of my eye. As I reflect back, Peepers and I had a lot of adventures One time we were ossiug the Blood reserve and 1 held up by a small band Indians. They wanted to play mar- es. I used my horse's eye for shooter nnd iron every mar- e in Standoff. It was a sad day [or me icn Peepers left the ranch, Id, if I remember correctly, n optometrist on the re- rvc. Long Time No See. such is life, over he- re we know it. Just a blink rj it's gone. Before Peepers left, how- er, we look something to re ember him by. We needed at beautiful glass eye lo iver a jar of preserved peach- Good night mom. Reject student requests TABER (HNS) No chang.
