Robby and the Rodeo
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Robby lived on a horse ranch. Robby loved riding horses. When Robby was seven, Rain Dancer was born. Rain Dancer was a quarter horse that was roan colored. That means her coat was a mixture of white hairs and dark reddish brown hairs. Rain Dancer's legs, mane, and tail were almost black.
 
2     Robby spent a lot of time with Rain Dancer. He talked to her and fed her special horse treats. He nicknamed her "Rain." Rain loved carrots, and Robby would feed her a carrot each day. Sometimes he hid the carrots in his pocket. Rain would nibble on his pocket until she found the carrots.
 
3     Robby was riding Rain by the time she was three years old. Robby taught Rain to kneel and to nod "yes" or "no" when he asked her questions. He trained her to stop and start quickly and to run around large barrels. When Robby rode Rain around the barrels, they were doing what is called barrel racing. Robby and Rain were a real team.
