    ***competition*** please read

    Hi all!!

    I was wondering if you could help me out???!!

    My name is Abi Hayward. I am a student at Plymouth College of Art, and I am currently undertaking my Majour study, where I am creating a zine or small book
    containing horse Illustrations, and hopefully short stories or preferably, poems.


    I was hopeing if people could send me some sort of text to fill up the pages?

    I am looking for:
    The brief is open, any size, any topic as long as it is horse related.

    Must be a maximum of half a page so 3 short paragraphs telling a small horsey tale.

    Thank you very much for helping me out, please email submissions to: hayward.abi@googlemail.com

    Chosen entries will be notified and will receive the digital illustration accompanying the poem.

    Here is mine :)
    BTW y is this in the competition area?

    Walking down the sunlit beach I see a marvlous sight, a horse with wings so large and great, so bright they look made of light!
    I climb aboard and off we go racing the dolphins jumping oh so high!
    As I look down below I can't believe I can actually fly!

    They snort and prance in anticipation
    The breath in deeply the morning air

    And when the fog settles, the sun rises,
    They pick up their wings and start to dance

    Hope this one is ok too... it's sort of short but I didn't have time to make it longer.

    They snort and prance in anticipation
    The breath in deeply the morning air

    And when the fog settles, the sun rises,
    They pick up their wings and start to dance

    oups little mistakes in there.

    It's suppose to be this:
    They snort and prance in anticipation
    They breath in deeply the morning air

    And when the fog settles, the sun rises,
    They pick up their wings and start to dance

    I feel the trot of my horse as to say “don’t give up ! Don’t give up !“. I love my horse but its so hard. I look at the black stallion’s shoulder. I put my hand down and I pat his neck. My friend looks relieved “set up the jump“ I say.I picked up a flat out canter and keep going in circles till the jump is set up. “READY !“ yells my friend. I look at the ground , as if it were a real person , a real enemy. I stay calm and trot my horse to the jump , calmly I lift into my jumping position. I feel my horse take off and we touch the ground , connected like were the only things in the world.I feel a exploding power and I feel my eyes close and great pain . I wake up and look around. I’m surrounded by doctors and family members and I have a wrap around my head , “what happened ??“ I ask “ you fell off your horse “ says the doctor. “ Ohh “ I say .I look confused and lost I ask my mom "How is Loco" she replies “good I think we got that covered for a day". I turn to the doctor “ when can I go home “ he replies “ soon , just sit tight and no riding for a while “ ……. Days go by and my parents report back to me about Loco my baby , my life , my horse ………. Its time to go home , I pack up and I head home the doctor says “ no riding ! “ and my parents made sure I did not a week went by and my parents said something to me that was every horse owners nightmare “ we have to sell your horse whats the point of keeping a horse you can't ride “ and then my dad adds so meanly “its like its stealing our money “ I look at them not even stopping to think or try to hold the tears “ I HATE YOU ! “ I say bursting into tears , heading to the barn , my parents stop for a minute then follow , I grab the lead rope and clip it on Loco’s halter , I lead him out of the stall and I try to find a mounting block , with blurry eyes , I hop up , not so gracefully and before thinking , I pick up a gallop holding on for dear life , I go wherever Loco wanted to go , we went to a big field , miles from my house , I never ever missed my parents and I never thinked during the time , I had grabbed my backpack , which I had food in , before I left and we had a creek and a big field of grass.
    Umm I have more

    Draft horse
    Extremely large

    In love

    A horse is a treasure
    Be it big or small
    Commenara or Shetland
    Draft or gaited
    Every horse is special like people
    Forever you should love them

    Abused Horse

    I graze my land and sit close to my mom
    She neighs to me
    I play around with the foals
    Oh what it is like to be free
    Man yelling a screaming herd us up
    We get taken to a bad place
    My mom is calm
    I neigh staying close to her side
    I get forced into a tight place
    I see a horses ribs sticking out of his stomach
    The man yells at me
    He takes my mom and I never see her again
    The man takes me and its my time to leave the earth
    Bye everyone
    Bye earth
    I love you

    My Horse...... The First One
    I got my horse one day
    I looked around to see
    A horse it was black
    He nudged me
    I smiled big
    This was
    The best
    Day of my
    Life could not
    Even breath when
    They opened that stall
    Door and I have been through so
    Many horse now but he has a special place
    In my heart for ever and ever
    He is a horse that neighs
    At your everytime you
    Come in his stall he
    Had a smooth trot
    A super willing
    He had a
    Spot on
    He was
    So special
    In his own way
    One day he fell sick
    I cared for him patiently
    He was so very special and
    Talented I could not believe what
    Was happening so I put on my happy
    Face and I went out to the barn with the
    Vet but then the vet told me that he was
    Not going to make it the worst day of my life
    I will never ever forget him and his black body
