No Wedding

I woke up without her beside me. We argued last night. Maybe she finally gave up on me. But as I looked for her, I saw the pile of hay arranged in her signature way. She made a breakfast for me. She did not leave me. She was kidnapped.

My mind was racing, so as my noisy hooves as I look for her around the ranch. Then I remembered the wedding.

I rushed towards the pavilion and saw several cars parked and the elegantly-embellished venue. My purely white wife will take the bride to this chapel. I heard she is part of the human’s elaborate wedding hullabaloo that we gladly never had.

We need not an extravagant event just to seal our love, my wife and I surely know that.

  1. I missed your works! This one’s really nice. I had to read it again. And as I look upon the photo, finally noticed the horse. I just love it!

  2. It’s so nice to have you back dear sweet Rosey! This story was great! The horses are married and that is so sweet. I love the end where he tells that they didn’t need a wedding to seal their love. Very “horse” romantic!

    1. HAHAHA! Thank you, PJ! 😀 😀 😀 My initial idea is a married horse and the wife being slaughtered but that would be too tragic for a welcome back post so I opted for something “horse” romantic. HAHA 😀
      Thank you, PJ!


  3. Lol. He’s shaking his head at the humans. He has his ways, and they have theirs. Too bad their ways involve temporarily kidnapping his wife, though! That’s not cool. Lol. Such a creative take of the prompt.

  4. Horses are so smart, aren’t they? They’re clearly the wiser beasts in Gulliver’s Travels. They have wisdom here as well. Keep the wedding simple, folks. It’s the marriage afterward that counts. Thanks for such a pleasurable read, sister!
