Wild Horses

A herd of mustangs haunt the draw
Behind our ranch.  I never saw
A prettier sight beneath the sun,
Than watching while wild horses run!
Their manes and tails stream out behind.
Their power and beauty is the kind
That makes your heart beat wild and fast,
Imprinting memories to last.

The sound of hooves that strike the ground
Like thunder, rumbling around
And when they wheel, the dust lifts high
To drift like smoke, across the sky.
Sometimes I hear them in the night,
Giving a sudden snort of fright.
Or they'll nicker, as though to say
They like it here and plan to stay.
How I enjoy this glimpse they give
Of how the west's wild horses live!

I love this too.  Horses are one of God's most wonderful gifts to the earth. So huge and so benign. You write about them with love and respect.  Love, Joyce

Dear Marge;  Has Bill ever seen wild horses?
I hope he has, as it's a wonderful experience. We are in tune that is for sure!

Love

Dear Betty Lou

This is a great poem about wild horses and reminds me of an Australian movie called, "The Man From Snowy River".  The wild horses in that movie were magnificent.

Love Verbena xo

Dear Verbena:

I saw that movie "The Man From Snowy River" and thought it was great! The wild horses we saw around us at the mine in Nevada were really beautiful animals. Thanks for reading!

Love
Betty Lou
