My Sister and Her Horse
My sister has a horse.
It has one white foot and a white streak down her forehead.
She is Brown and very very soft.
We can't ride her because it rains all off the time.
When we just got her we rode her all of the time, because it was sunny then but not now.
It rains and rains and her name is skeeter.
She is very pretty.
I would like it to sun so I can ride her.
I can't ride her because It rains and rains.
By Cristy, age 7 or 8
I am guessing 8 because of the neat handwriting, but would like to claim age 7 because of the bad drawing. Although doesn't Skeeter look like she feels pretty on page 7? Personally, I like the variety--I drew the same horse 10 times and none look alike. That's talent.
Anyway, two things. One, I don't remember liking the horse all that much. She was my sister's horse and I remember being just fine with keeping it that way. Two, it really did rain a lot where we lived (approx. 70in. per year). I am not making that up.
Thanks, Mom, for tucking this story into my baby book.
