Jessica Christensen

Jessica Christensen was awarded a check for $100 and honored as the first place winner in the Best Friends of Animals Writing Contest in the State of Utah. Jessica's poem, titled "Horses" was selected from many art and literature entries submitted to the Best Friends of Animals Sanctuary in Kanab, for their annual contest. Jessica is the daughter of Lyle and Chris Christensen of Lawrence. She is a junior at Emery High School, participates in track and field, and is also on the volleyball team. Horses

Gentle Giants

Moseying from tire to tire,

The sun scorching their soft fur.

Munching on the hay and corn,

Clomp, clomp

Chomp, chomp

The slight smell of manure.

The sky starts to cloud,

Blackness covers the ground,

And it starts to pour

As I watch, they start to get restless

Jumping and bounding


Kicking their unshod hooves into the air

Cooling relief from the heat of the day

They roll in the mud

Putting a thick layer of muck

Across the once silky, soft fur

Now drenched and mud soaked

Standing into a dead run

The muscles

Twinging and flexing as they move.

Floating over the ground

Like Gentle Giants
