A crazy idea

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

Let's watch the pony's run

"
I've been wanting to write a funny, crazy story using race horse names.
Ever since I watched a race with a horse named Who Farted.
It's such a crazy notion, I was certain some of you might want to take a stab at it too.

When mine falls at the first hurdle I can find all sorts of names for them.
Dodo, dead duck, are you really a horse. Though, I'm a donkey for backing it in the first place usually comes to mind. If I see a horse called, Trump's wall. I'm putting my house on it.

Living in the heart of horse country, Lexington, KY, you would think I would do more "horsing around" in my poetry. My youngest daughter has worked with horses in the past . . . all kinds. In fact, she wrote a poem about horses when she was eleven. Here it is . . .

HORSES
Horses are chestnut, silver, and gold
Horses can be courageous and bold.
Their musical rhythm is in their hooves
They clitter and clatter when they move.
Chestnut, silver and gold,
you sometimes cry when they are sold.
But they are always in your heart
Even when you are far apart.
(As recorded in the "Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans, 1995 Edition)

Can you imagine a horse named 'Who Farted' winning the Triple Crown!!??

Every horse won't remain behind right when it started
with a horse entered with a name like 'Who Farted."
Surely, they'ed run faster than ever before
just because of what's in store . . .
Losing's no option!

Good luck with your story, Cheerie.
Tom

I've let different names fall into place but I'm never happy with the outcome.
This is a good idea! Reminds me of the hilarious "Japanese world cup" game thing with all the funny horses XD there's a ballerina horse that dances and twirls, an elvis horse with Elvis presely hair and even panda! It's hilarious and amusing to watch so I recommend the movie/game to watch! It had me rolling on the floor dying of laughter!!!!! I'm looking forward to this!

Bunnies submission

Welcome to the master race
The border wall steeple chase
Canter of banter this pace
Trophy reward of disgrace
Mane Attraction distracted
Didn’t get into the line
Colt 45 swig starting gun
And began trotting in runs
Horse Power just cowered
And walked around the wall
Gaits Of Hello just mellowed
And collapsed in a ball
Leon Trotsky-ed a pick
Seldom his trots did they stick
Glue Sniffer just plight thee his
Trough and contemplated bricks
Misinformation this course
Not fit for man even horse
Fanciful wall that they sport

This is a great idea! I can imagine you coming up with some mind-blowing handles to weave into a gut-busting story! Many times when I write a story, my reviewers share all their ideas & it makes me want to rewrite to include more great ideas I hadn't thought of! Here it looks like you are trying to harvest the ideas beforehand, but I guess people aren't inspired to come up with their own ideas until you've posted some of your mind-tickling prose first! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

The only time I ever put money on a horse was in the Grand National.. many, many years ago.. the horse came in first but I was too scared to collect my winnings .. now how weird is that ... I was about 15 years old at the time.... of course.. this comment of mine might have been funnier had I made summat up.. like my horse came in first but the rider came the following week... or summat.. maybe .. now get writing x
