(A poem for the vet who treated our horse at the CSU Ft. Collins Veterinary School)


June 22, 2011


We came to Ft. Collins with our endurance horse

There we found a great clinic, CSU of course

We took in Bella who was fit but lame

And were assigned a vet, Dr. Amend by name


She has a way with a horse that’s second to none

She can make them believe that a needle is fun

Bella said, “Fine, you can do me two

But if you try three, you will feel my shoe”


With her equine knowledge and healing hands

She did so much for her client, Anne Sands

Dr. Katie Amend is the best one yet

Here’s a horseshoe of gold for a golden vet
