This One for Horses

This one for horses
with their acrid names:
Bushells, the colour of weak tea;
Gayfox, the agile
with her quick brown eye;
Toby, her foal, who loved his oats;
Little Chief, the brave one
with his spiky mane,
upright black feathers down his neck;
Freckles, Mr Blowguts, his insouciant stare
down nostrils always ‘wide-awake’;
Old George (who was Georgina)
who went to sleep
one day, while standing on a snake.
