He stables the horses from strongest
to weakest, tells me how many days
we’ve had of rain, or without rain;
he’s always counting days, calories, clients,
dollars. He organizes life by pattern,
alphabetical order or numerically,
whatever fits and likes to find just the right
box, tool, word for the job. But women,

Our friends live on top of a Mountain/Hill and they raise reining horses and Border Collies and of course their children as well.
They had a horrible thunder and lightning storm hit their area of VT and lost every animal that was in their huge barn. Horses, border collie pups, female horses just getting ready to foal, it was sickening to see the loss and the pain the family went through, being helpless to help the animals when the lightning hit.
