The noblest of creatures; the horse is one of the more diverse of animals. To many a working man, the horse is a working animal, capable of tremendous strength and pulling power. However, for every working horse there are just as many show horses, kept as pets for personal use by the wealthy. For those who like a flutter, horses can be a joy and a curse. Pawns of the gambling industry, these horses are bred solely to race. With such a wide scope of career paths, it’s no wonder that the horse is held in such high regard. These are proud, magnificent beasts, and they deserve our respect.
A Horse and a Boy
From my book Appalachian Poetry. To my son Cory. Living the country life with a love for horses. Sadly she is gone but her memory will live forever.

This poem is meant to try and describe the feeling we Equestrians get when we ride...
