Mountain raised,

Colonel bred,

the old man gets the call,

show her how it feels

to really watch a cow—

to hold on

when he cracks back,

hear him nicker

under his breath

when he’s done well.

No better feeling 

with your clothes on.

  1. A good cutting horse is a joy to watch and, I’m sure, to ride. Happy Easter, John.

  3. A nod of respect to a good old horse. And to you, John, a happy birthday! I read and appreciate every one of your posts, yet mostly fail to offer my thanks. For that, I apologize. Thank you for all of it.
