"I am stronger than the wrong"
I talked to a friend just the other day
who's got lots of opinions and plenty to say.
We discussed what we both like to see in a horse
His requirements and mine were different of course....
He likes a clean throat latch and a long shinny neck,
and prefers that hocks are set close to the deck.
Short backs and hart feed and clean sloping' shoulder,
and gaskin that looks like it sweltered a boulder.
He likes a short face and a big ol' soft eye,
and says these are the horses he's likely to buy.
And when he'd completed his lengthy discourse,
on all of the attributes of the quality horse.
He asked my opinion, and where do I start?
And I said that I ... just want horse with heart.
I said I want heart above all the other.
I don't care if he's Smart Little Lena's full brother.
Or just how much money that his grandmother won,
or whether he's roan, palomino or dun.
But give me a horse with some grit and some try,
and some heart and some guts and that's one that I'll buy.
And I've found it's the same with a woman or man......

"I believe everything happen for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go
Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right
You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
