Touching tale...
The author did a good job of setting the atmosphere of this short story. The tension created by water rationing and not knowing where to find the next water source was effective. The contrast with going to someone's aid and what happens, as a result, might well be the attitude of someone old enough he's not worried about consequences. On the whole, a good story. I was a little sorry to see some minor errors as they tended to slow down the reading. I will read some others stories by this author.

Not overly good or bad, flows nicely. I think the title does grab your attention, keep it, and I think the horseman helps define the Man's character. I will be looking for other works by the same author.

A nice story. It works best when read aloud. If reading straight off the page I noticed a few minor errors. Not that I'm pedantic about such things but a few jumped out. A misuse of "your" and "you're." A couple of times where a period would work better than a comma. And several times where the punctuation and capitalization involving quotes was incorrect. But again, a nice story.

Good story with poetic mood. But some remarks. First, the title 'A Man and His Ass' sounds a bit dubious. To my mind 'An Old Man and His Donkey' looks better (Hemingwayan). Second, did you really need that strange crazy horseman, riding nowhere?

Liked it, rang a bit kin to the tales of the Mouser and the Barbarian.
Will try some of your other works.
