I saw you first when I strolled in,

massive horse, the god of the yard.

You gave us health, you god of healing.

The light streamed in; your heart lit up

just like you were Apollo,

the god of truth, you saw our souls.

You put your head on my shoulder

It was so heavy but I held fast.

You smelt of hay and horse.

Your stamps echoed around the place

your feet as big as dinner plates.

Never wanted to be without your friends.

Now you will join a four-horse chariot,

in order to move the Sun across the sky.

Sounds like a heartfelt tribute to an old soldier Emma-Jane?
