Great story...very cleverly written! Joe sure had his hands full with this "gal"!
Very cute! Did very well in making us think it was a real woman for a bit. I had to laugh out loud when I realized it was a horse; :)
Funny story! Martha is a great character!
Took me awhile to figure out if Martha was a horse or a girl...I think it was finally mention of the bridle that clinched it! Enjoyed your story very much!
Well written.. I thought Martha was a girl! I admit I laughed when I found out she was a horse. I bet this fooled a lot of us that read the story.
You had me too.But is was a nice twist.Liked your story
What a fantastic twist...Anthropomorphism at its best. Thanks for sharing your talents to explore new adventures experienced by the Cartwrights.
pkmoonshine that was funny...I thought for sure she was a girl...I thought Joe had met his match. Good story!
Actually, Angelface, you're right on both counts ;-) Thank you for your feedback and for your compliments. I appreciate hearing from you very much.

Tracy, my pleasure. I want to thank you, too, for your feedback and for your complimentary words. I appreciate hearing from you very much and I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
You had me going there for a minute pk. Fantastic story, loved how Joe was determined to win.
Thank your feedback, Terina. Joe CAN be a stubborn, ornery cuss when he wants to be ... of course that's part of his charm. I appreciate hearing from you and I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
