Thinking about horses

I’ve been thinking about horses
and how their legs are longer
than some humans I’ve met.
I’ve been thinking about horses
and how their penises are longer
than some humans I’ve met.
I’ve been thinking about how horses
are the only animals to wear shoes,
that I know of.
I’ve been thinking about how horses
are the only creatures who have to
have their shoes nailed on.
I’ve been thinking about horses
and how they walk
within 90 minutes of being born
and how I can’t wait to see
a baby gallop through a field one day.
