Avalanche

“It’s going to be okay, Avalanche.”

I haven’t worked for this outfit long enough to know all the horse he was.

But he had a kind eye and

a memorable snowy white coat.

He was a horse any cowboy would respect

whether it came to roping, packing horns

or packing around grandkids

Someone must have started him right.

“You’re a good horse, Avalanche.”
