Easily Replaced?

My handsome Oberon

Easily Replaced

I wouldn't miss
your brown liquid eyes
upon me, your warm,
tender lips softly searching,
nibbling my shoulder,
seeking my caress.

I wouldn't miss
your adventurous spirit,
nor the way you light up
when you see me,
nor the way you listen
to my singing, content.

I wouldn't miss
the way you love me.

This has NOTHING to do with the fact I carry treats on me.
Don't you LOVE his furry winter coat?  It's going to get even fuzzier soon.
Looking pretty cute in his cooling down blanket

Yeah, Margaret, i get it.
I bitch relentlessly about the horses, but then i wander out there.
Orion lifts his head and i see those big brown eyes.
I place my shoulder under his neck of thunder and everythings alright. I reassure him those horrid days at nasty tracks are over. 54 races to scratch the gambler's itch.
But i try to not let anyone see me loving him~it would ruin my image.

He really is a lovely horse, you are blessed to have found him.

Ha! My husband does the same thing regarding the dogs (any man that puts up with four pooches DOES have a reason to complain) but I catch him scratching their ears now and again :)
