Saddle Up Folks! Come for a Ride at the Carrot Ranch

As you might have noticed, some weeks I have a go at flash fiction at Charli Mills’ Carrot Ranch. Flash fiction is simply small itty bits of writing that tell some sort of story. Generally it varies from 50-500 words. There are a few rules like not being offensive but otherwise it is open to absolutely anyone who wants to have a go.
