this horse

Tex, his shadow and the Cowboy

Getting Ready to Ride

Texas cattleman
once owned this big  quarter horse–
Cowboy owns him now

rancher called him BOB
the brand is for Big Old Boy–
Cowboy named him Tex

nostrils flare and snort
ground shakes with thunder of hooves–
Tex the quarter horse

bridled and saddled
Big Old Tex wins the barrels–
young boy’s dream-come-true

Brand is for Big Old Boy
