CO-AUTHOR MIKE HAMMITT

Jane Moor    Mike, a retired business executive discovered horses when his new bride brought her lifelong avocation of horses into their marriage. What had been the occasional articles assigned by editors, ranging from gardening to personality interviews, changed with his first horse, a gift from his wife. Telling others through his articles about the wonderful world of horses led to a humorous article about his "Journey to Horsemanship". The response from readers brought a request from the editor of The International Rocky Mountain Horse magazine, to make a continuing column of his "journey". Writing was no longer an occasional "thing to do" but a passion to share his love of horses with others.

  WORK LIKE A HORSE
by Jane Moor

Toiling hard to put up new hay,
I sweat profusely through the day,
Under hot sun their hay is made
While each horse dozes in the shade.

As stinking stalls I'm cleaning out,
Horses leisurely stand about.
My hard work they rudely ignore
Plopping more poop on that clean floor.

I groom them daily, clean their feet,
Tend to their comfort, cold or heat,
Repairing fence, patching the roof,
I'm waiting on them, hand and hoof.

I have come to the conclusion
Some people live in delusion.
"To work like a horse" is a quote
Some horseless person surely wrote.

HORSES
and their
PEOPLE

by Mike Hammitt and Jane Moor

ISBN 978-0-9825963-3-3
Soft Bound - 142 pages
$11.99 + shipping/handling

   If you've ever giggled at "A Horse Running on Gas", reveled in "The Perfect Ride", or had a "Dream Fulfilled" by a horse, you'll relate to this celebration of Horses and Their People. The poems evoke tears of laughter and sadness, especially for horse owners recognizing their own personal memories of "Been there, done that." For non-horse owners, the poetry provides unconventional insights into daily life spent with these amazing creatures.

   The accompanying photographs capture the charisma, grace, and beauty of horses, while the sometimes silly, sometimes serious poems examine the relationships and rapport that exists between humans and horses. A touching and fun read for horse lovers everywhere.

In Memory of Mike Hammitt
4-21-1932 ~ 8-14-2010
   Horses and Their People is Mike's legacy to horse lovers. It is a tribute to his admiration and love of equines, especially his beloved Rockies. He was always striving to learn more about living and working with these beautiful animals, and treasured the unique bond between horse and human. His writing explored all facets of these relationships, often viewed through his unique sense of humor.
   The horse community has lost a devoted and hard working supporter.
