Rescuing CF

Recently I was involved with Amazing Grace Equine Rescue. The true love and concern for the animals is apparent. This is my gift for saving CF and getting her to her new home. —Bonnie Derr

Amazing Grace

by Bonnie Derr

I am loved.
I am adored
Because my bloodlines
A perfect score.

A champion sire
A champion dam,
Such high hopes
For this little man.

I am loved
I am adored. 

At the yearling sale
My price went overboard.
The highest bid
The richest man
Bought me from
My breeders’ hand.

I am loved
I am adored.

The trainer’s barn
Can be endured.
  The early days
The perfect track
My wonderful groom
And funky tack.

I am loved
I am adored. 

I’m racing now.
Purses are my owners reward.
I start to slow
My pace gets weak
My latest race
Ended in defeat.

I was loved
I was adored.

My failing speed
Has sealed my fate.
The auction barn
The smell of blood
The Kill Buyers
There is no hope.

I am so scared
I am to die

Then I see
This real kind eye.
  The gentle hands
The loving face.
I have been found
By AMAZING GRACE.

I AM LOVED
I AM ADORED.

SAFE
FOREVERMORE
