Elizabeth -- I enjoyed reading about Tejas also. What a transformation for the colt from Houston to Cow Horse. The "heart" of your poem captured Tejas' heart. It sounds like he will be a legend!
I laughed at the horse/coyote race. "Saved by a fence." :)
Wasn't Tejas a former name/spelling of Texas?
When we lived on the farm we had a dog that went from family pet to "Hog Dog" and loved every minute of working with the livestock. Her name was Legacy...we've never had another dog like her.
My daughter and her family live in Amarillo. :)
Elizabeth - This is great! Not only are you a wonderful "faith writer" - you are also a great Cowboy Poet! My hat is off to you, fellow Texan. Good stuff. Got any more? Share em, if you do. In Christ's Love,
