HORSE CREEK (Coleman County). Horse Creek rises in the outskirts of Santa Anna in east central Coleman County (at 31°44' N, 99°19' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on Home Creek (at 31°39' N, 99°22' W). Fishermen use the creek, which passes through locally flat terrain surrounded by rolling hills. Local soils are sandy and clayey loams and support mainly water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
