"God Bless My Horse", the title poem of my book, is a poem that tells how God has blessed this man's horse and by blessing his horse, has blessed the man's entire life, and all the stupid, crazy things he (and I) have ever done. While reading this book, you will see that, not only this poem, but the whole book actually tells the stories from the view of a young man during his developing spiritual journey through life, to an older man, who thrives on his relationship with GOD. Throughout it all, God has always been there! In this book, a lifetime of thoughts, humor, and emotions are written in poetry, with a distinct West Texas flavor, including the unique dialog and colloquialisms of the people of the area. Many of the poems are of the old west, telling tales of cowboys, Native Americans, and horses. Others talk about my working experiences as a lineman and with the oilfields. All the poems are stories of my life experiences and how I talked to God throughout these experiences. Throughout the book is the expression of my strong Christian faith and love for the one true God. It is my expressed wish that anyone who reads this book will not only enjoy the book, but that they will also receive the good news of God's love and grace provided by his son, Jesus.

I was given the book of poetry "God Bless my Horse" by the author himself, Scooter McMinn. I have known Scooter for years and have listened to his writings in our church numerous times and never realized just how awesome his poetry really is. That is until I read "God Bless my Horse". His love of God, family and country comes through with every word he has written. The words on the pages reflect Scooters way of talking (West Texas) and his way of thinking. There is no misunderstanding as to the meaning of each poem. Simple to understand and a delight to read. Anyone who reads this book will see Scooter's heart and will be blessed by every word. By reading "God Bless my Horse" you will see a man who the Lord has blessed with an awesome gift of being able to express his feelings in words. Not many can truly do that.
