One day the Goblin wanders I Dec laughed as he pulled on his southward Into the mountains. An eagle attacks him, and he runs home in terror. Soon, however, he goes back, and finds a valley In which wild horses live. He encounters the Albino, and barely es- capes with his life. Meanwhile his mother, Flieka, Is bearing her next foal The birth Is premature, and the vetor- /narlan Is In attendance. CHAPTER Xl "Sacrifice the foal," said Me- Laughlin, "the mare won't stand much more." "May not have to," said Doe. "I'm not stumped yet." They fastened a block and tackle to the wall and ran the rope through it. Then Doc fetched an instrument like a pair of ice tongs, and to Ken's horror, thrust the points into the foal's eye sockets. Then they all pulled together. It moved a little. Flicka heaved and struggled convulsively. The men hauled until they were red in the face. And suddenly the whole little body slid out. Instantly the men undid the ropes and Gus went to prepare a hot mash for Flicka. The doctor kneeled over the foal, which was barely alive. "Is it premature?" asked Nell. "It might be a little. The teeth fare just through. When was the mare bred?" . "We don't know exactly." "Will it live?" asked Ken. The doctor did not answer. He wiped the foal dry and clean, mas- saged it and gave it a hypodermic injection. It was a very small but neatly made filly. It had a short back, long spidery legs close to- getheT and a small fine head with a dish face. It was a pinkish yel- low with blond tail and mane. "Just like Flicka!" exclaimed Nell. "Will it live?" insisted Ken. "Can't say for sure, it's pretty weak. But sometimes these little fellows surprise you. It's just touch and go." They were all astonished to see that the terrible hooks had not in- jured the fool's eyes at all. Nell noticed Ken's face. It was white and drawn. When Flicka suf. fered he suffered. She wondered if, after all the suffering, there would ever be any good thing come from the Albino's blood. Would it be, per- haps, this tiny filly? Soon Flicka was able to get to her feet and eat her mash. The filly showed signs of life and struggled to rise. Dec and McLaughlin lifted it and held it up underneath its dam to nurse. When the teat touched its lips it opened its mouth and be- gan to suck, and everyone watching smiled and relaxed. When it had had enough, it was put down on the hay again and the veterinarian prepared to leave. At this moment, a shadow at the door blocked out the sunlight. They turned to look and saw the Goblin standing there. If Ken had seen someone returned from the dead he could hardly have felt a more viole0t shock. Over his whole body there poured a wave of heat, followed by such bliss that he could not see clearly. The~ Gus's voice exclaimed, -q(imilly Crickets! Luk at him! He's tore to pieces!" And Ken's eyes cleared and he saw the wounds and. scabs on Goblin's white coat and rushed to him. Goblin was startled and fled around the corral. He did not, how- ever, go out of the open gate, but circled and came hesitatingly back. McLaughlin reprimanded Ken sharply, then, himself, went quietly toward the colt, his eye running over him. "Steady, old boy! Gosh! Look at that ear! That's a nice fellow- - " r " what a rip m the shoulde -- And there s a piece chewed out of his fanny!" said Howard. , "That colt's sure been in a fight, said the vet, eyeing the swollen shoulder wound. "That was done by a hoof, and a mighty big one. I'd better take a look at it while I'm here." "Get a bucket of oats, Howard," said McLaughlin, "and Ken, bring the halter." The Goblin was ravenous for the eats. They haltered him and Me- Laughlin and the vet examined his wounds. , 'Look here, said Dec, "here are some other wounds that are nearly healed. He's been in two fights. Look at the mark of claws here on the other shoulder--might have been a wildcat--" "And," said Howard excitedly, "look at the little scars all over the underside of his neck and belly-- what did that?" They were scattered snags, nearly healed. Dec was puzzled. He shook his head. "Might be wire snags," he said doubtfully. Every time the Goblin lifted his nose out of the bucket he turned his head toward Nell. She smoothed his face, wondering if this ended a~l their future hopes. That shoul- der wound looked deep. If it had reached the bones or tendons-- Rob voiced her thought. "This ~houlder wound, Dec--will it hurt s/a speed?" shirt. "My guess is, you've got a jumper." "'I've seen plenty of wooden fences in the east jumped." Rob shook his head. "But horses don't Jump these ~wire fences. No---there must be some gates open somewhere up the line." '"train him for a hunter," said DEE, "and send him east to a hunt club. You'd get a big price for him. He's a husky--how old Is he? A long yearling?" "A short yearling," said Ken proudly. "He was foaled last Sep- tember." "By Jinks!" said the vet. "He's a baby elephant." "He's made a good beginning as a stallion," said McLaughiin dryly. "He'll carry these scars all his life." "Gee! It must have been some fight!" exclaimed Howard excited- ly. "Do you think he mixed it up with Banner, Dad? Banner's the only stallion around here." "It might have been one of the other yearlings," said Nell "They might have been fighting--" "Not a hoof of that size," said Rob, indicating the shoulder wound. "It could only be Banner. If Gob- lin has started fighting Banner--but I can't understand Banner's giving him such punishment--the colt must have done something to deserve it." II!!lt ] I llIlll)l)l llll) Ir They exchanged a flurry of blows. But Ken didn't have the colt for long. He had been put into the home pasture, to be close at hand in case his wounds needed tending. Flicka and her fitly were put there too as soon as the little foal could run at her mother's side. There sprang up between Goblin and his little sister one of those strange at- tachments that exist between horses. When he was near, she must leave her dam's side and wander to him. He would stand, his high head curved and bent to her. She would reach up her little muzzle to touch his face and neck. The boys carried oats to them morning and e~,ening. One morning the Goblin was not there. Rob ex- amined all the fences. "I'm begin- ning to think Dec must have been right, and that he can jump these fences," he said frowning. "Unless he rolled under that place on the south side where there's a little hol- low." The boys saddled up and rode out to hunt for him. He was not with the yearlings, nor brood mares, nor the two-year-olds. He was nowhere to be seen. This time Ken was not so un- happy. The colt had come back once--he probably would again. The new fortitude was sufficient for this strain upon it, although when he was reBdy to say his prayers that night, it did cross his mind to ask the Al- mighty' If ~Ie thought it was quite fair to be an Indian giver? He sup. pressed this impulse aS being not entirely respectful and, possibly,~ prejudicial to future favors. The little filly grew and thrived. Her hoofs and bones hardened. S e came to know the family, the dogs, the cats, and to be interested in all their comings and goings. Nell named her Touch And Go. Rob McLallghlin was crazy about ,her. She meant something to him-- the justification of his theory of line. breeding. His eyes were very keen and blue and narrow as he looked at her. "Now there's a little filly that's got points!" he said, Look at those perfect legs!" He began to feed her oats almost from the start, He would let her mouth a few grains at a time. With plentiful feeding she would over- come the handicap of her premature birth--she had it in her. What she had in her would come out. They halter-broke and handled her early without any trouble at all. "I always, had a hunch that if Flicka was bred back to Banner I'd get something out of the ordinary." They were sitting on the terrace after supper, Flicka and the filly near the fountain in the center oI~ the Green. Suddenly they heard the thunder of hoofs from below in the calf pasture and saw, rounding the shoulder of the hill, the Goblin com- ing at a canter. Rob rose to his feet, astonished--how could the colt have got into the calf pasture?" In a moment they all knew. There was a four-strand barbed wire fence between the Green and the calf pas- ture. Goblin cantered easily up to it--swerved to aim at the gate post, and cleared it easily. He came can- tering to Flicka and the filly, neigh- ing a greeting. "Well I'm damned," said Rob, then put his pipe back slowly into his mouth. "If he's started fighting Banner and jumping all the fences, there's going to be hell to pay from now on. This means he can come and go as he pleases." The boys rushed down to the Green, chattering excitedly. Nell followed them with Rob. Goblin and his little sister were in an ecstasy of reunion. "He's kissing her!" shouted Ken. "Look Mother! Look at Goblin!" "It's simply ridiculous to call him Goblin," said Nell. "That's not a Goblin. That's Thunderhead." There was a moment's silence. Ken felt his mother's words go right through him. It had come at last-- The white foal seemed inches taller. He had grown in all his parts so that he had still that appearance of maturity and strange precocity--like a boy carrying a man's responsibil- ity. Nell looked up at her husband. "Don't you see, Rob? He's com. pletely changed. He's been changed ever since he was lost the first time, when he got those awful cuts." "How do you mean--changed?" demanded Howard. "Well---sort of grown-up. More dignified. Something has come into him that was never there before, and it's ironed out a lot of his awk- wardness and meanness. We must call him by his right name from now on--he deserves it." "The Goblin is dead--long live Thunderhead," shouted Howard. Ken got a bucket of oats and fed the wanderer. Then Flicks. Then offered the bucket to the tiny filly. She jabbed her inquisitive little nose into it, took it out with a few grains sticking to it and jumped away, mouthing them, tossing her head up and down. "Dad," said Ken, "where does he go when he goes off--Thunderhead, I mean?" Ken almost blushed with embarrassment when he gave his colt the great title. "I wish I knew," said Rob slowly. "And that jumping of wire fences-- he's had no training--he's inherited that--straight from the Albino. He's an absolute throwback. That fel- low was a great jumper. No fence could hold him." When it grew darker they put the three horses down i~to the calf pas- ture. "Not that it will do much good," said Rob dryly. "That bronc'll come and go as he pleases." They sat on the terrace again for a while in the dark. Across the Green two hoot owls were calling to each other. $ Rob said at last thoughtfully, "Well- Thunderhead can jump. Thunderhead can buck. Thunder- head can fight. But none of these accomplishments are important to a racer. It remains to be seen U Thunderhead can run." Thunderhead could run, but an. other year passed before they knew it for certain. The boys had come home from school for their summer vacation again, and the colt, being now a two-year-old, was started on a course of intensive training. He had had his freedom all win. ter. There had been times when, Rob and Nell knew, he was no- where on the Goose Bar ranch. He went south--that much had been din. covered. He stayed away awhile. He came back. But now that Ken was home and had begun trainin~ him in earnest, he was to be kept iv. all summer. No more gallivanting. Ken worked with the colt for s fortnight. He went through the drill with halter, grooming, blanketing all over again. He rode him bareback, then with saddle. He rode him i~ the corral, neck-reining him, doinj figure eights, making him back and advance, stand.' Seldom was a day that he was not bucked off.~ He final. ly took him out of the corral and' struggled with him in the open. The colt wheeled, lunged, balked--gal. loped a little, then fought and backed and refused--refused--then bucked. Ken remounted him and the figh| began again. Thunderhead didn t like his mat. tee. Often he seemed animated b} a definite spirit of hatred. He gal loped at a big tree and tried tc scrape the boy off. Ken yanked hil yead around just in time. Thee Thunderhead learned how to take the bit in his teeth and run away. I was a rough, fighting gallop, with the weight of the horse's head so hear/ in Ken's hands that he was racks4 to pieces.
