Mabel is a Belgian horse
who came to us one day,
scared and hungry and of course
really wanting hay.
We took her in as anyone would
if you have a heart at all,
and lead her to the big horse barn
where she quickly picked her stall.
Mabel is a big old horse,
the biggest we've ever seen,
she is missing lots of weight everywhere
head to toe and in between.
She has made a friend in Jubilee
a hard working mule,
eating and gaining weight has become
part of their favorite duel.
Mabel has a very kind eye,
but really my favorite part
her lips which are droopy and so soft
they touch me in my heart.
She worked so hard all her life,
and was treated very poorly
her owners fed her nothing much,
noticing those ribs, oh surely
So now she is here and eating well,
and getting lots of food
she looks much happier, you can tell
"carrot craving" is her latest mood.
The reason she is here today?
My daughter she likes her horses.
She rescues them, and feeds them too,
getting them all on right courses.
Mabel, Jubil and the rest
of the hungry, eating herd
needs lots of hay, grain and veterinary work,
the cost of which, my word.
Times are tough for everyone,
I know this to be true,
but if you could spare a little change,
it would help buy a bale or two.
So skip that coffee! Skip that toll, oops!
Skip that dinner out!
Make a donation to ARU,
it will make us twist and shout!
Mabel, Jubilee, Annabelle too
will really be so happy,
to eat more hay, relax and doze
makes us feel all sappy.
Thank you from the bottom of
hearts both horse and human,
your kind donation really helps.
Now we are off to do some grooming.
