Rolling in the Mud

The smell of a horse
Like a rose to my love
My favourite cologne

Stables and horse dung
Work that's so messy
Better than sitting at my desk

Groomed and brushed nicely
Halter and saddle on
Hooking up as One


Subtly we speak
A squeeze with my knee
Trotting we go

Speak so softly 
A gentle creature
One ear ahead

An Ear back to Me

A days ride has ended
Watered and fed
Led out to the paddock

All that grooming for naught
As the gate is closed 
Rolling in the mud

White horse no more

    I'm not a horse person at all, although I have ridden a couple of times. I've also seen rodeos (I grew up in Texas) and the Horse Whisperer, so I know there can be a symbiotic relationship between humans and horses. I really liked Man-Horse. Nice work. Jack

    I grew up with horses, and there is something wonderful about the smell, the tack, that reminds me of home, sitting on the fence watching my Dad train his colts. Thanks for the reminder, Rick !
