Equophilia:  Love of horses is known as equophilia. It afflicts a lot of people who dream of seeing their beloved steads on the other side of eternity. At least, that is what Brenda Riley-Seymore posits in her poem "Don't Cry for the Horses."  Read the last three stanzas below. Riverview Memorial Gardens. [2012]

    "Look up into heaven
You'll see them above
The horses we lost
The horses we loved
    "Manes and tails flowing
They Gallop through time
They were never yours
They were never mine
    "Don't cry for the horses
They will be back someday
When our time has come
They will show us the way”
