" Sure?"
" About everything." He stepped across and lifted the cook-box and put it in the wagon and brought the cover snug with its drawstring. "Nothing left but to hitch."
He stepped back into the corral and angled through the oxen, looking to see if anyone needed help, and came to where Hig and Fairman were wrestling with an ornery steer. They had a rope over its horns that Hig was trying to hold while Fairman lifted the yoke. Thev held up when they saw him.
Hig gave Evans his thin smile while he bent back with the rope. "I'd as lief yoke a buffalo as this damn ox.
" Whyn't you take a hitch on a spoke?"
" Comin' to that," Hig answered. "On'y I hate to. I got a bet up with this critter, by God, that I'll hold him or bust." Keeping the rope tight with one hand, he took the loose end of it with the other and looped it over a wheel spoke and drew it up. "I'm busted."
Evans clapped the ox on the rump. It stepped ahead balkily while Hig snubbed it.
" I'm shy of good work stock," Fairman said, his forehead wrinkled with the thought of it. He rubbed the mosquitoes off the back of one hand. "Sore feet. The sand wears the hoofs down to nothing."
" Same with all of us. By and by the hoofs'll get tougher, they tell me. I been sealin' 'em off and puttin' hot tar in the cracks."
