equine gifts

looking at the horse
pull down the lips
and check the teeth
good teeth are a gift
pull up on a leg
check out how long
been on the hoof
mouth's ok, checkin' south
ol' belly's a bit saggin'
a while been baggin' but
haunches rounded and strong
soft eyes are still clear
and you see a little fire
and think about the fourth
turn on that muddy track
everyone standing cheering
you're galloping neck-n-neck
unglued and runnin' like wind
dreamin' of a photo finish

Hi, agoodguy2have,
"Don't look a gift horse in the mouth" when unglued and runnin' like wind dreamin' of a photo finish. Hey, I like this poem.
Amen, brother. We're not ready for the glue factory yet! grin cheers
You may be a bit long in the tooth and have had a few owners but I am sure you are not ready for the knackers yard yet. We will arrange a nice dry stable for you, a few bales of straw and an occasional rub down. K?
open your mouth wider - i wanna check 'em again
thumbs up bouquet bouquet
