    Quite a write! I love horses too. My daughter has been on me for weeks to take her riding since it has warmed up. I've also been known to tear up the court in donkey basketball...which is hilarious and fun.

    Holy-holy horses!! Wow! You did it great! I didnt write mine yet ... but I dont think I could compete with this one. Excellent work, Deborah! Best of luck in Cyndi's dont need it. Ruben.

    The use of both rhyme and acrostic is amazing! It looks like your choice of form was very limiting, yet it all flows together nicely.

  1. Date: 3/8/2013 12:19:00 AM actually came up with a horse for every letter -- I am so impressed! I generally don't enjoy reading ABC poems, but this one is fantastic. Your poem flows right along at a good pace. I am cheering for this one to win 1st place in the ABC contest :D

    oh my gosh, you worked so hard on this one I can really tell because you made your lines very short and had to make each pair of lines go together for each rhyming couplet. how wonderful to see your love of horses too.

    This is sensational, I love this and it should do very well. I am glad you liked spiritual world because I wrote it with you in mind, seriously I did, it was something you said in a comment to someone's poem, can't remember which one, but it was for you... have a good weekend...David

    What a great and informative write. I had no idea that there was a complete list of equine breeds from A-Z. I don't know a lot about horses But one thing I missed was the Pinto. I love the Palimino. It's blond and beautiful in its form. I also like the Clydesdales because of how majestic they are. But I like the Pinto, because they seem to be anxious and ready to go. Or maybe it's because that's what Tonto rode. Either way, thanks for making me think. Good job. Rockman
