Very well told. I appreciated the consistent stanza. I could just picture the scene and loved the little moral lesson too.
A lovely story told very well in verse. I really enjoyed it.
Delightful and heart-warming read! Flowed beautifully. Well done!
You set the scene wonderfully in this tug-at-the-heartstrings scene with the children in their Pawpaw's den. I had to smile at the pronouncement of "Froggy" to one contestant in this horse-jumping competition. :) Pawpaw's creativity of using the horse bookends for trophies was endearing. You have excellent (and eloquent) word choices like steeds, nickered, equine. Your meter is perfect. Charming, creative come to mind to describe your work and your memory.
