The little bay plans next play

Requiring skilled feet.


Okay, horse lovers.  This might not be a bay.  Mane doesn’t look very black but what do I know about horses!  I sat on one one time.  It lifted a leg because of flies.  I cried in fright.  Daddy took me off and I’ve never been back on.   Silly me, missed a lot.   If you know, tell me in the comments.

    I like your poem.
    I went on one once, it was during the winter. It slipped on an icy patch. I screamed! And that was it for me. Maybe I’ll try again this spring😊.
