We've nearly let a season pass us by without another round of readers' horse haikus! Read the great submissions on the springtime haiku post.  

It's simple—three lines with a pattern of 5-7-5 syllables each, respectively. To add yours, make sure you're signed in (if you're not registered on TheHorse.com it's free and easy) and just hit comment below the post.

Here are mine:

My horse is too fat
For Kentucky summer heat
Sweating in the shade

Feeling lazy too
Bareback rides on shaded paths
Grateful he's mellowed

Summer grooming means
Hoof conditioner, sunscreen
Diligent for ticks

Hot days at horse shows
Big gray horse clipped and spotless
Perfumed with Show Sheen

Stewards waive show coats
White breeches are not my friends
Vanity loses

He's such a good boy
Blue ribbons flutter on stall
Carrots forever

Pastures hold their green
Ironic that winter hay
Needs to be stacked now

Summer gone so fast
Kids at barn are back at school
Autumn in the air

Pretty bad haikus
I'd better keep the day job
Share your summer scene!
