Horse Haiku of the Day, by Margaux Lavenue

Horse life in 17 syllables.


Each morning we release a fresh new horsey haiku (or set of haikus!) into the Internet ether. Today’s haikus come from reader Margaux Lavenue.

Sometimes I feel like
My horse only likes me when
I have  food for him

My nighttime prayer
Before all of the horse shows:

It’s show day, all dressed
My horses mouth is covered with
Slime he’ll wipe on me

I wish that I could
Train boys like I train my horse
And just give them food

My horse got a new
Blanket for $300
The next day, it’s ripped

When I have food, I
Am god to my horse and when
I don’t, I’m nothing
