A Clydesdale Pal

Oh, she was ever so beautiful
As she stood out in the grass
A pristine white fence surrounds her
There's no way I could simply pass

I know she hoped that I would visit
I knew that's what she thought
I'd snapped some amazing pictures
Great remembrances of her I've got

For I saw this pretty lady before
As she stood within her stall
Beth is the name she is called
She's lovely and that's not all

She has a grace you can't imagine
She'd be clumsy you might think
But she's neat when she nibbles grain
And lady-like when she drinks

Her markings are absolutely perfect
A white blaze upon her face
If you get her relative's book down
Impressive ancestry you would trace

She's a charmer, oh she really is
Makes you want to kiss her nose
Gentle and extremely wonderful
She's relaxed and quite composed

I hope you can visit like I did
This beautiful Clydesdale gal
I wish I could see her every day
I know we'd be such pals!

    A sweet poem for our beautiful four legged friends. People used to depend on them for travel, now horses are quickly becoming too expensive to keep. They are such gentle giants and only want to please us...Good write! ....kathy

    touching words about a horse that's more - not just kiss her nose; kiss her toes and see!
