No feet, No Horse!|
I threw a saddle Mystify today,
And went out for a little ride,
She pranced along on four sound feet,
And filled my heart with pride.
It was just about this time last year
That red dun filly showed up lame,
A badly split and deformed hoof,
I feared she’d never be sound again.
Each week I rasped and sealed the crack,
With epoxy and resin glue,
Trimmed her toes up good and short,
And snapped on a rubber shoe.
“No feet, no horse” I can’t argue that,
But I stuck hard to the plan.
With rasp and glue I brought her through,
’cause she was just too pretty to can.
