This work has reached the exceptional level
The horsemen are legendary
"Snowy River Muster" by Aussie
He was born in the high country snow
This colt belonged to Old Regret
A station where the finest grow
His bloodline already well set

The wild horses, brumbies by name
Would bring bloodstock to join mob
Leader of the mob snapped his mane
The colt gave in, joined the cob

The station manager had a red face
That colt was worth a thousand pounds
All the best riders joined the race
A reward offered to cheering sounds

The men tracked the brumbies down
The cob protecting his mares
Heavy snow littered the ground
Slipping and sliding to rider's stares

Jimmy rode his Waler down the drift
Lassoed that wayward colt
Struggled for purchase and lift
To stop that young colt to bolt

The High Country riders had a beer
All friends at Old Regret
Lifted Jimmy with a cheer
One-hundred pounds to get

Author Notes
A Cob is a breed of heavy horse. Brumbies equal to your mustangs. The famous Walers' are like quarter-horses bred in the bush country of New South Wales. I have loosely based this poem on The Man from Snowy River.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
