About Shakespeare “The Equine”

Shakespeare relaxes between stanzas

The name Shakespeare is synonymous with great literature. The Shakespeare of old is legendary. The Shakespeare quoted here is a legend in his own mind!

From the tender age of five, “Bear” (as he prefers to be called in the barn to ensure some degree of anonymity, and little wonder …) has revealed a poetic prowess that no doubt has his namesake rolling in his grave!

As with any budding wordsmith, his commentary drifts around his everyday experiences, namely his uncomplicated and somewhat cushy life on the farm. And the style he uses on any given day may be dictated by his mood, the atmosphere in the barn or the quality of the hay at his feet. His sensitivity is renown.

Of course, every poet needs access to a pen.

Writer Dorothy McDonall always dreamed she would have a horse to call her own, but never imagined he would show up with the registered name Shakespeare and a noggin full of his own creative ideas. Since their collaboration began in 2006, Dorothy has jumped right into her role as Scribe and learned to accept the fact that as a wise guy and patient teacher Shakespeare will always offer freely his exalted opinions (and not all repeatable!), and that her role is to transcribe for broader consumption.

Together the Bard and his Scribe have fun penning their poetic ramblings created to appeal to children of all ages.

Dorothy lives with her partner, Lloyd, two collies and two cats in Ontario. Shakespeare resides in his own magical world out yonder.
