Poem-- Horse Therapy
 
I come home from work
I'm tired and I'm grumpy,
12 hours of stress
no wonder I'm jumpy.

But there's no rest for me
there they stand at the gate
They wihinny and neigh
asking "Why are you late?"

I go up the drive
and into the house
A frown for my kid
a scowl for my spouse.

They just smile in return
can see it's been a hard day
They know what I need
and let me go on my way.

I change into good clothes
paddock boots; scuffed and worn,
faded old t-shirt,
jeans that are torn.

Then it's out to the barn
where I feed and I mutter,
clean out three stalls
and carry some water.

"Groom your horse every day"
I once read in a book,
so I pull aut some brushes
and give them a look.

M'Lady always needs cleaning
Big Jane looks just fine
I could work on Hawks mane
but I'd be wasting my time

I put back the brushes
and check all 12 feet
Pat 3 velvet noses
and give each a treat

Now walk back to the house
my steps aren't so snappy.
I'm more tired than ever
but at least now I'm happy.
