POSSE HORSES   

 

   


                                                                       Horses are a very important part of the posse. Each new posse member is
required to own a horse, and ride with the posse. This page is dedicated to our posse horses.                      

   
         
 

      
                                                                                            A Horses Prayer

Feed me, water me and care for me. When my days work is done provide me with shelter, a clean dry bed, and a stall wide enough to lie down in comfort. Talk to me, your voice often means as much to me as the reins. Pet me sometimes, that I may serve you the more gladly and learn to love you. Do not jerk the reins and do not whip me when going up hill. Never strike, beat or kick me when I do not understand what you mean, but give me a chance to understand. Watch me and if I fail to do your bidding, see if something is wrong with my harness or my feet. Examine my teeth when I do not eat. I may have an ulcerated tooth that is very painful. Do not tie my head in unnatural positions, or take away my best defense against flies by cutting off my tail. (I don't take away your mosquito curtains.) Don't smoke in my barn or leave me tied overnight and perhaps burn me to death while you are sleeping in your comfortable bed. And last, my master when my strength is gone do not turn me out in a pasture with no shelter and let me freeze to death, or sell me to some cruel owner to be slowly starved or worked to death. Take my life in the kindest way, and your God will reward you - hereafter.
Amen.
