  2. Iconic. I know the word, Pecos, and I know what posse means, but I can't quite get the connection. Perhaps this is a sheriff's substation? Looks like the snow has gone and you've a blue sky. Let the good times roll!

  5. I love the word 'posse'. I looked up its origin and found that the word dates from "1575–85; Medieval Latin posse power, force, noun use of L infinitive: to be able, have power". Interesting!

  6. It's not a stretch to guess the fence isn't for dogs. Judging by the look of the land I'd guess it's a horsey kind of a place. And it sure looks high desert Western.

  7. Looks like you have found the Sheriff's horse arena.

  8. Maybe they are keeping livestock in. Posse can be used as a pet name for your group. I think they are calling their family their posse. Not unusual for this Texas girl.
