Here we all are at a virtual antique auto show. Our hostess is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week is to write an original story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Al Forbes. Thank, Al.
To read the other stories by the group, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.

FAITHFUL OLD CLOPPER by P.S. Joshi
Old Clopper, or Clop for short, had been owned by the Rigleys for years. He’d grown up with the children.
His main job was pulling the family buggy, but he also helped old Blinker the plow horse.
Sometimes the children rode him bareback for fun. He had a good life.
“Yes sir,” Pa often said, “I don’t trust these newfangled automobiles. I bought a tractor but I needed that when Blinker died.”
Mr. Johnson at the next farm bought a Model T Ford, then Mr. Pitt. The next year so did Pa and old Clop was retired to the pasture.
