Betsy Carter’s Horse Scene: Horses await visit from a jolly fellow

You’d better trot out, you better not shy, you better not buck. I’m telling you why: Sant E. Quine is coming to your barn.

He sees you in your “Sleazy,” he knows when you’re with Kate (Moga, DVM). He knows you kicked the blacksmith’s butt, so be good for Eddie (Shelton’s) sake.

Oh, you better piaffe, you better extend, you better not bite. I’m telling you, friend, Sant E. Quine is coming to your barn.

With galloping boots and blankets with fleece, bridles with bling and apples and treats, Sant E. Quine is coming to your barn.

He’s making a list and checking it twice, gonna find out who’s spooky or nice. Sant E. Quine is coming to your barn.

He sees you when you’re grazing, he knows you jumped the gate. He knows you show for blue and gold, so be gold for your rider’s sake.

Oh, you better not rear and break the cross ties. You better not crib, I’m telling you why: Sant E. Quine is coming to your barn.

With acupuncture and meds for your hocks, pads for your shoes and Himalayan salt blocks, Sant E. Quine is coming to your barn.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, Happy Ramadan, the dalai lama rocks, Happy Holidays.
