Weekly Photo Challenge: Inspiration.

SpiritJustaHorse (335x640)

“Just a horse.”

A $600. stud colt.

Out of Nifty Sally;

no pedigree to speak of.

Not especially athletic.


Nearly three decades later,

there isn’t much left of him.

Just a horse;

nothing out of the ordinary,

but Inspiration–

enough to bet a life on.

No regrets. Not one.


How about you?

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo- I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)
