Just a ranch horse…

He’s just a ranch horse….

He’s the pair of jeans you always reach for

because you know how well they fit.

He’s the trusty pickup you’ve had forever

because you can always count on it.

He’s a favorite pair of shoes

That always fit just right.

He’s your favorite cozy blanket

that keeps you warm on the coldest nights.

He’s the path you take on your way home

that has the prettiest views

He’s your favorite go-to meal

it’s the one you always choose.

He’s waiting for you at the gate

because there may be cookies in your hand.

He’ll drop his head into your halter

and patiently he will stand.

He’ll have a spring in his step

after many winter months at rest

When you point him toward the mountain

he’ll for dang sure give his best.

He’s the circle horse, the branding horse,

he’s up for sorting pen or alley

You cannot wear this sucker out,

rest him an hour and he’ll rally.

Load him up and haul him

to the neighbors or maybe to town.

It doesn’t matter where you point him

he will never let you down.

He’s plenty gentle and well mannered

but you best stay on your toes

He’ll take advantage of a sleeper

He’s smarter than he shows.

He’s social and a talker

He thinks everyone’s a friend.

You’ll learn to tolerate the occasional whinny

Because that’s a war you’ll never win

He’s just a ranch horse, folks,

but I’d say he’s done it all.

When you need an all around

he’ll be the one you call….
