The best colour

Tradition, they say
can teach us a lot.
So here is what horsemen
on colour have thought.
A bay is hardy,
a chestnut is fast.
And you can't kill a buckskin,
he'll just last and last.
A gray is gentle,
a sorrel is hot.
A dun is a horse
you'll be happy you bought.
White eyes are flighty,
white feet may crack.
While some won't rely
on the feet of a black.
Some pintos are lucky,
like the medicine hats.
But all horsemen agree -
the best color is fat.
