Mike's Meadow Muffin for April 3, 2006
(From The valley Of The Wild Horses)
Her mother was a gentle sort,
a dude mare in a string,
Who had a brief affair with an outlaw stud,
four years ago this Spring.
The filly is prit near broke to ride,
I started her last Fall you know,
Like most of them Nemiah Cayuses,
For her, trust comes real slow.
She aint one bit mean or nasty,
She's just got a nervous sort of mind,
that will snap with out much warning,
like a frayed piece of balin' twine.
The instincts of survival,
passed to her from her old Dad,
Might slow up the training process,
but she won't turn out too bad.
