HORSE HOLLOW. Horse Hollow, a draw with an intermittent stream, begins fourteen miles southeast of Roby in southeastern Fisher County (at 32°35' N, 100°16' W) and runs south for four miles to a point on Sweetwater Creek, near Eskota a mile north of the Nolan county line (at 32°32' N, 100°16' W). The hollow crosses flat to gently sloping terrain surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
