Horse Haikus of the Day, by Laurie Jakobsen

Horse life in 17 syllables.

Laurie and her horse (they leave their pink polos at home on horse show days)

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

Laurie writes, “Here are some from a city dweller perspective.”

Commute from the city

Inhale barn air deep, relax.

Best moment of week.


Apartment building

Washer/dryer. Sneak saddle

pads, polos in — pray.


Matching shirt, wraps, pad.

Would George approve? Not in pink,

frowning trainer says.


Quick stop at Costco

after lesson this morning.

No fashion statement.
