Fairly Fair Horse

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on August 22, 2009, 7:50 am


by HorseFeathers, age 16 Noise and laughter fill my ears with a hustle and a bustle of little two-leg feet It smells so good here with the crisp roasting of apples and the constant smell of sugar playing on my lips I hear a strange sound the two leggeds call music it is loud and causes my ears to swivel about but my mistress seems to like it She taps her boots to its rhythm as she fills my small feed box with sweet smelling hay oh the golden stalks freshly gathered from the earth- it’s what

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 9 Star awoke to see Wilderness falling towards her. She screamed and tried to move, but her head still spun and she couldn’t make out which was up. Ebony saw the danger the foal was in and threw himself forward, placing himself between Wilderness and Star. Wilderness fell against Ebony and recovered quickly, unharmed. But Ebony felt the other stallion’s weight like a hard blow and he was breathing heavily. Star finally managed to stand and Tess pushed her

Guided Always

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on August 21, 2009, 8:00 am


by Madelaina, age 13 The glow that breathes upon the air Are millions of glistens in a horse’s stare. Clouds mottled blue and purple throughout the days Are the icy pelts of dapple greys, And skirting these herds of passing steeds Prance sunny palominos, our eyes they lead. Winter frost ponies lace up the glass In grand migrations. Blooming in frisk, Blossoms wild inhale new dawns, Stretching their petals in waking fashion, Yawning out pent-up neighs. Amidst the darkest hours with no direction, Around

The Wild Mustang – Chapter 8

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on August 20, 2009, 8:00 am


by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 8 Everyone’s heads turned to stare at Wilderness. With slow, majestic steps that commanded submission, he walked over to Ebony. Staring at him with cold hard eyes he snorted. “Step away,” he growled. “Wilderness…” Tess began, but he silenced her with a flick of his tail. Ebony pinned his ears back, resisting the stallion’s command. “She needs to get this stone out,” he protested, glancing at Patience’s

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 7 Wilderness stopped his herd on top of a ridge. He looked out and saw a black stallion running from the mountain and towards a tree to the left. He snorted. This was his challenger was it? The one trying to steal Tess! He galloped forward, calling over his shoulder for his herd to stay put and graze. Sometimes a stallion had to fight. He surged forward, enjoying the powerful feeling that ran through his body as he used his legs to pull himself towards the other

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 6 Tess gasped. She stopped and sniffed at the blood on the ground. The sun was setting but she could still see mountain lion tracks. “They’ve left here two hours ago,” Ebony said, sniffing. “One of them was attacked.” Tess choked down a sob. Ebony touched her shoulder with his nose to comfort her, but she pulled away and shot him an evil look. “I’ll take care of that cat. I’ll follow it. You get the foals.” He

The Wild Mustang – Chapter 5

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 5 Tess slid to a stop as a black object came flying at her. She scrambled to back up, kicking up mud and dirt, then wheeled and almost made it. The black thing came around and cut her off with a snort. Tess backed away and gasped. A powerful stallion with long, silky mane and a beautiful, elegant neck was looking at her with his head in the air and his hoof bent to point at his chest. His ears were pricked and his tail was slowly blowing in the breeze. His eyes searched

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 4 Wilderness lifted his head and sniffed the air. “Tess went this way.” He said, moving his herd out before they could finish their meal. Emity shivered in excitement as she raced beside her leader. This was his first time being in the front of the band. Usually he’d be at the back, protecting his mares, allowing Tess to lead. It didn’t make him happy that Rocket was acting in his place as protector, and he made a note to ditch the colt as

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 3 Star dropped her head and tasted the grass. Anything to soothe her hunger. She tried to chew and swallow. “I wish I had some milk,” Patience whimpered. Star agreed, but she didn’t say so. She looked up at the mountains and their snow covered peaks and shivered. It was so nice down here in the valley, even with the giant mud puddles from the flood. In some places the water was up to the foal’s chest still. Star urged herself on, but she

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 2 The world was dark and cold. Star was coughing water. She was floating in a place where there seemed to be nothing. No ground, no sky, nothing but cold, wet darkness. She opened her heavy eyelids and sneezed. Her chest was cold and she felt sick. All around her the current was pulling bits of bushes and sticks towards a location far away. Star struggled to stand but it was too deep. “Ma!” she called out but no one was around. She felt so weak and her

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 CHAPTER 1 The whole valley was flooded. The band of wild ponies tried to get out of the wettest part, but they didn’t want to leave their valley. The lead mare took a long look at the place then decided they had to move. She couldn’t take them North to the mountains or they would freeze. It wasn’t yet spring and the mountains were the coldest place. She had to go south, to the high hills where the band of spotted ponies lives. They would have to try to

by Stargazer, age 12 Up ahead are stormy skies I see the hatred in your eyes Fear turns violent, this isn’t me Won’t somebody set me free? Show me that you understand And I can work quite well with man Speak my language, be my friend And my freedom I will lend But try and get me to break It’s my spirit you cannot take Unable to flee, forced to fight I may hurt you to keep my life We could dodge those storm skies But there’s still hatred in your eyes Treat me right, can’t

Two Hearts, One Mind

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on August 11, 2009, 8:00 am


by Madelaina, age 13 Spirit high form needless wings, Spearing us afar, Over poles where planets sing, Reaching vivid star. Flying change a literal flight; An airborne, stepping dance. Grand as day our surreal might Inspires hypnotic prance. Coat blooming with trails of glows Deep as a thousand seas Reflect your mind, and how it knows The thoughts inside of me. The world’s glory in falter, Think us a flawless kind “How do you do it?” they utter, We say, “Two hearts, one mind.” More

Dreaming

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 I close my eyes and slip into a day A day full of grooming, and horses and hay A day full of love and respect that is true A day of horses that truly love you. I close my eyes and see flowing mane I see power and spirit like pounding rain I hear a roar like thunder as hooves pound I see a flash of color and hear a bellowing sound I close my eyes and a horse gallops by To chase away fear and soar and fly! A horse with color as bright as the sun Crowned in glory to be seen

Prarie Song

by HorseFeathers, age 16 Upon a broken field stands my little wooden cabin beneath the willow tree Every night is crystal clear gentle winds playing with my chimes The crickets perform at my door But of it all, oh of it all the white horseman stands for all He comes every evening when the sun sets to rest with his guitar, and his riding upon the white steed He sings to me every night One song by moon’s light “Kansas, sweet Kansas land divine Like the earth and the sky our love binds” Never

When Life Gives You Horses, Make a Whole Lot of Fun!

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on August 8, 2009, 8:00 am


by Violet Inkpen, age 13 Everyone who has a horse knows how amazing they are. Everyone who’s been around horses knows what true love means. Everyone who has only dreamed of horses… they know a different kind of love. A love that doesn’t love back the same way. When a horse girl meets horses in person for the first time, there is a spark, a little flame starting in their heart. Through the years she has been building a fire pit, first with pictures of horses in her room, then stuffed

Horses, Outsoar

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on August 7, 2009, 8:00 am


by Madelaina, age 13 Horses and I are free from capture, Daring the skies to be untouchable, Rivaling the songs of joy and glory With ours composed by hooves and laughter. Rough gaits force the world into disarray Unleashing hiccups upon the earth, And with the ever-gymnastic wind, Balance somersaults away. Smooth gaits of silk and velvet sigh Over lands, evading touch and Forging a riotous tornado While we’re safe in its eye. But all cease, as one’s soul is lulled into reveries Of mellow honey

by Violet Inkpen, age 13 You look at me and I look back. Your whisper things in my ear. I listen closely, and understand All the things that you hold dear. I shake my mane and make you smile I rest my chin on your shoulder for a while With love that we share and a bond so tight I will defend you with all my might. So let the thunder crack in the sky I bellow defiance, watch me fly! So let the rain beat down on the earth I will fight it all for you. So let the trouble come in bundles of ten! I will
