My Quarter Horse (limerick)

Updated on January 13, 2017

On quarter horse I rode about

As to jealous friends I would shout

My freedom transporter

Was back of this snorter

Until all my quarters ran out

      I had a friend who said that was the only kind of horse that she could ride. Are you two related?

      Memories of childhood. What disappointment when the time had run out.

      I love this, Martin! I grew up with quarter horses on the ranch. I love the twist with the 25-cent rides this depicts. Genius! And the photo is adorable. Clint Eastwood is the perfect touch! I loved that show! I loved that hat!

      If a quarter horse is not available

      And you are out of luck,

      With your dollar, find a large male deer

      And try to ride a buck.

      Moral? Fun does not last forever; enjoy it while it lasts.

      Too cute!

      How long has it been since I've heard that title song?

      You have out done yourself, Martin!!

      I remember those mechanical horses. They were usually in front of the dime store.

      You have brought back the memories. So cute. One of my granddaughters truly loves horses. Sadly, I guess they will never get to ride on any of the "quarter horses" as I never see any around. She likes the real horses though, and about four miles from my house they have riding stables. Plus she has a lovely rocking horse she has had since her 1st birthday.

      Voted up ++++ sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper

      Oh, that's cute! I remember when those "quarter horses" used to be available outside supermarkets.
