Get Out of Here, Turkey!

These horses...
chased this turkey right out of their ranchland pasture back into town, while....
turkey vultures sitting on fence posts watched the entire thing! 
Early Saturday morning on the north side of Marfa, we saw a little drama unfold.  Two horses pasturing in grassy ranchland appeared to be chasing a small animal.  As we road our bikes closer, we could see a turkey running FAST towards town, the horses right behind him obviously chasing them out of their pasture.  The turkey ducked below the fence and ran straight into Marfa, down the alley between two homes and OUT OF THERE!  All the while, turkey vultures sat on fenceposts watching the entire spectacle!
