The Horse's Lament

He puts a dreadful halter on, it’s made from rope and knots And when he jerks and jerks my head, it really hurts me lots

He flaps a stupid flag each day, I don’t know what to do And though I try to please him, he hits me with it too

He makes me run away from him, and says it is a game But when he jerks the halter, it hurts me just the same

He flags me while I’m eating, and there isn’t any need If he only stopped to think, I just want to eat my feed

He chases me around and round, it really makes me tired If he just showed me what he wants, he’d see how much I tried

To all of you who own a horse, here is what we pray If you really care for us, please find a kinder way

Read about my best-selling book here. It’s THE Bible on horse/human relationships.
