A Cowboy and A Good Reinin’ Horse

A Cowboy and A Good Reinin’ Horse
By J. Bryan Wasson

The cowboy and his horse are more than a team
They form a single unit
Without any seam
The brain of the man is connected
To the brain of the horse
By six foot ribbons of latago reins

When the hide of a cow
Meets the hide of a horse
With just whisper of a touch
On the side of the neck
The man and the horse become one

With a nudge of heel
And press of a knee
From the man on his back
Is all that it takes
For the cowboy and horse to become one

A dismounted cowboy don’t amount to much
It makes him feel
Helpless, and sort of alone and old
But give a dismounted cowboy a good reinin’ horse
And a dismounted cowboy is made whole

The Wildwood

A great Family Tribute as well as a tribute to all Veterans. A few months ago, I had the honor of swearing my Grandson into the U.S. Army. He is now serving in Germany. --- Unrelated: I have not spent much time on the web for the last few monts due to illness. Last week, I found something on one of my Blogs that you had sent to me, but due to computer problems, I lost it. If possible, please send again. Thanks, JBW
