Horses In Heaven Poem by Cowboy Ron Williams

Horses In Heaven

Rating: 5.0

If there are no horses in Heaven,
then I don't want to go.
That means I'd walk everywhere,
and I walk really slow.

Some of my best friends are horses,
they have outstanding class.
Some of my other friends are more
like a horse's… well, you know.

If there are no horses in Heaven,
that would not sit with me well,
so if heaven has no horses,
then just send me to… somewhere else.

Inspired by a song by Hank Williams Jr. Some of the words are 'If Heaven ain't a lot like Dixie, then I don't want to go. If Heaven ain't a lot like Dixie, I'd just as soon stay home. If they don't have a Grand Ole Opry like they do down in Tennessee, just send me to hell or New York City; it'd be 'bout the same to me.'

oh, you want to know why I say that... well, because the Bible says Christ Jesus returns to earth mounted on a horse as well as a fleet of angels mounted on horses... so

Susan, can you tell me where exactly the bible says that? I have read the entire bible and I don't remember that. Of course, at my age I don't remember what I had for breakfast this morning...

You know my feelings on this and I made a huge study on the question of whether horses go to heaven. They do

You're in Heaven looking for a horse? You'll find one, of course! Great poem, Ron!

No PH stars do I see above. If they ever show up where I can see them, I'll send them off to you via a mourning dove. That would be 5, count 'em, FIVE stars. : )

Horses are amazing animals! Of course there are horses in heaven and somehow I believe they will be even better than what we experience now! Great poem! !
