After the Super Bowl: A Horse Poem for Monday

After that tear-jerker of a Budweiser commerical last night–y'all saw it, didn’t you? The man who raises the Clydesdale colt, only to see it leave for the big time?–I thought this poem was appropriate.

First, the Budweiser commercial: (get out your hankies)

Next, Garrison Keillor reading this morning’s poem from The Writer’s Almanac: “Celebration: Birth of a Colt” by Linda Hogan.

Just a little pop culture-literary mix for your Monday morning. Enjoy!
