100 Words – Wild Horse

100 Words is another weekly writing challenge over at Velvet Verbosity. The lovely lady behind the blog and challenge launches a word or phrase at us on a Monday and gives us a week to play with it any way we like, as long as it is exactly 100 words long. We can then link up our post using the nifty linking tool, have other challenges read our posts, and best of all, read theirs!  





After four days on the mountain I decided to give capturing the wild horse one last try.

Many had tried before.

None had succeeded.

Then I saw it.

Standing behind a gum tree.

I knew it could be easily spooked.

As I moved towards it I could see it knew I was there.

The magnificent stallion looked at me.

Stared into my eyes.

I stood frozen.

It snorted, shook its mane, stamped its foot as if daring me to make a move.

Then as if laughing at my feeble attempts turned and plunged down the hill to safety.

    Lovely story! The language really captures the horse – if the man doesn’t.

      Thanks you Gabriella. I found this prompt challenging and so I based the story on a horse I once saw in the bush, we call them brumbys – wild horses – they roam our national parks in the south of the country.I didn’t get near that one either.

  2. my favourite stories – about horses – brumbies… I wrote about them a while back – if I ever find the link I’ll let you know! 🙂 They are ver clever beasts they are…as you found out my friend.

  3. Ah, lovely. I loved the challenge thrown down by the horse 🙂

  4. The way you have dealt with the horse is amazing especially the concluding line.
