The Horse's Prayer

To Thee, my master, I offer my prayer.
Feed me, water and care for me, and when the day's work is done,
provide me with shelter, a clean, dry bed and a stall
wide enough for me to lie down in comfort.
Always be kind to me.
Your voice often means as much to me as the reins.
Never strike, beat, or kick me
when I don't understand what you want,
but give me the chance to understand you.
Pet me sometimes, that I may serve you the more gladly and learn to love you.
Make sure that I am properly shod that I may serve you in comfort.
And finally, Oh My Master, when my useful strength is gone,
do not turn me out to starve...
or freeze...
and do not sell me to some cruel owner...
to be slowly tortured and starved to death;
but do thou, My master, take my life in the kindest, most humane way
and your God will reward you here and hereafter.
You will not consider me irreverent if I ask this...
in the name of Him who was born in a stable.
