After The Tears Have Stopped Falling 😢
After The Heartaches Subside...
My Mind Is Asking The Question...
Why Many Good Horses Have Died?

Is It The Breeding Or Training?
Is It The Fault Of The Track?
Is It The Greed And The Money?
Or Only The Conscience We Lack?

Why Are The Legs Oh So Fragile
That Two And Three Year Olds Die?
Why Can't The Doctors Repair Them?
And, Worse Yet, Why Don't They Try?

Is Insurance Money The Answer?
And To Save Them Not Worth The Price?
Is Saving Our Beautiful Horses
Worth Less Than The Toss Of The Dice?

Some Say It's Part Of The Game Now
It's Simply The Price We Must Pay!
My Heart Tells Me
Something Quite Different
It Says That We Must Find A Way.....

A Way To Develop More Soundness
A Way To Have Youngsters Grow Old!
A Way To Secure A Safe Future
For All Of The Dreams That We Hold.

So, After The Tears Have Stopped Falling
And, After The Heartaches Subside
Let's All Seek To Find Honest Answers
Of Why Those We Loved
Now Have Died.
