Texas Horse


A man was driving through West Texas one spring evening. The road was
deserted and he had not seen a soul for what seemed like hours. Suddenly,
his car started to cough and sputter and the engine slowly died away,
leaving him sitting by the road in total silence.

He popped the hood and looked to see if there was anything that he could
do to get it going again. Unfortunately, he had a limited knowledge of cars,
so all he could do was look at the engine, feeling despondent. As he peered
by the gradually fading light of his flashlight, he cursed that he had not put
in new batteries, like he had promised.

Suddenly, through the inky shadows, came a deep voice, "It's your fuel
pump."

The man jumped up quickly, striking his head on the underside of the hood.
"Who said that?" he demanded.

There were two horses standing in the field alongside and the man was
amazed
when the nearest of the two horses repeated, "It's your fuel pump, tap it
with your flashlight, and try it again." sure enough, the engine roared into life.
He muttered a short thanks to the horse and screeched away.

When he reached the next town, he ran into the local bar. "Large whiskey,
please!" he said.

A rancher sitting at the bar looked at the man's ashen face and asked,
"What's wrong? You look like you've seen a ghost!"

"It's unbelievable," the man said and recalled the whole tale to the
rancher.

The rancher took a sip of his beer and looked thoughtful "A horse, you
say? Was it by any chance a white horse?"

The man replied to the affirmative. "Yes it was! Am I crazy?"

"No, you ain't crazy. In fact, you're lucky," said the rancher "because
the black horse don't know nuthin' about cars!"
