Horse Sense

By Mary Lynn Bushong
1     Mandy and Sandy shrugged off their jackets and dropped their riding boots on the floor.
 
2     "Don't forget to put your riding clothes in the wash!" Mom called from the kitchen.
 
3     "We'll do it!" the girls chorused back.
 
4     "How were the riding lessons today?" asked Mom as the girls came into the kitchen. She filled a pot with water and put it on the stove to heat.
 
5     "My horse had thrown a shoe, so I had to ride a different one," said Mandy. "He wasn't as much fun to ride."
 
6     "Mr. Richards wants us to write an essay for the 4-H group," said Sandy. "I was hoping he would have us write about different kinds of horses. That would have been fun!"
 
7     "The essay is supposed to be about how horses have helped us over the years," Mandy joined in.
 
8     "That sounds like an interesting project," said Mom as she continued getting supper ready. "If you want to start brainstorming, I can give you a hand."
 
9     Sandy got a notebook and pencil and sat down at the table. "This won't be a long list," she said confidently. "It's not like horses can do a lot of things."
