The Tale of Dead Horse Trail
20 little horses were traveling through White Pass trail, one fell down and broke his tail.
19 little horses were trotting through the mud, five were stuck and got eaten by big bugs.
14 little horses were walking in the snow, two were slow and got eaten by wolves.
12 little horses were running up the narrow path, four fell off and landed with a crash.
8 little horses were crossing the river, when the last one got to the other side, she was a
bear's dinner. 7 little horses were prancing through the forest, three saw a branch fall
and they got smashed. 4 little horses were dozing in the snow, two slept in and completely
froze. 2 little horses were looking for gold, one horse was caught, and sadly got sold.
1 little horse was crying all alone, finally he said "And that is the tale of Dead Horse trail."
Then he carved those words into stone, and wandered off to die alone.
