Excerpt from In the Saddle: A Collection of Poems on Horseback-Riding Description of a Horse. Look, when a painter would surpass the life, In limning out a well-proportioned steed, His art with nature's workmanship at strife.As if the dead the living should exceed;So did this horse excel a common one, In shape, in courage, color, pace, and bone. Bound-hoofed, short-jointed, fetlocks shag and long, Broad breast, full eye, small head, and nostril wide, High crest, short ears, straight legs, and passing strong, Thin mane, thick tail, broad buttock, tender hide: Look, what a horse should have, he did not lack, Save a proud rider on so proud a back.
