The Best Horses in Heaven have no Tail

The Best Horses in Heaven have no Tail

"The best horses in Heaven they have no tail.
This is a rule they all know without fail."
Author: Miska Paget
I have had so many of you tag me in the following poem, I thought it time to reshare again.
This time I have also researched who the author is, so I can credit and thank the wonderful Miska Paget for writing this. <3
 
The best horses in Heaven
they have no tail.
This is a rule they all know
without fail.
 
For when a new horse arrives
with a short cut bob,
they all know that this horse
did a very good job.
 
His owner could not bear
to part with her friend
so she saved his tail,
wrapped in ribbons
and in braids,
to hold with his memory
in a very loving way.
 
To enter Heaven
without a tail
is an honor,
a message,
that without fail
announces to everyone,
far and wide
that this horse
was more than a wonderful ride.
 
But this horse was loved and cherished by one
and when his time serving on this Earth was done
he left behind a broken heart and a soul
from which he never will part.
