Nice Horsey


For a photog, they proved a winsome pair…

a little girl and huge horse at the Fair.

She stared long and hard in total silence;

he stood motionless, looking over the fence.

She had been amazed by a calf, goat, and pig,

but had never seen a creature this big.

Although she moved up rather close,

she couldn’t quite reach his nose.

Since she couldn’t rub his face in greeting,

she let her voice effect a meeting.

Her greeting was neither threatening nor bossy…

just a four-year-old’s high-pitched “Nice horsey!”
