|adventures of a horse named Sunny and his friends....Part one|
Chapter 1 I was running as fast as I could, my heart pounding in my chest. Our mare was about to foal and I didn't want to miss a thing. Rather than waste time to open the gate I climbed over the fence and jumped to the ground. As I landed I felt a searing pain rush through both of my ankles. I paid no mind and hobbled to the barn door. Mom was there and motioned for me to slow down and be quiet. I was real excited about this foal, as it was to be mine. Little did I know then that this foal would be part of my life for so long! It was nearing midnight. Candy was restless and stomping her feet, wanting to lie down. The contractions were stronger now and her time was near. Finally, as her milk began to run, she lay down to give life to my new friend. Within a few minutes the front legs appeared. His tiny muzzle was just where it was suppose to be, between his knees. With another contraction more of his legs and the rest of his head appeared. Next the most difficult part of the birth was for his shoulders to be pushed out. Candy rested for a moment then the final effort was made and the shoulders were clear and the rest of his body slid free. Candy lifted her head and nickered the softest and most loving sound that I have ever heard. The miracle of birth is something to behold and I will never forget how I felt when I saw Sunny for the first time. Sunny was the color of the sun, with a white blaze down his face, and two white stalking's. He had the longest legs that I had ever seen and bright hazel eyes. I was so proud of him and wanted to show him off to everyone, but Mom reminded me what time it was and there was school tomorrow. I looked longingly at my Mom hoping for a few more minutes with Sunny but knew that I had pushed my luck far enough, so I walked slowly back to the house and thought of all the things that I would do with my new horse. Sleep did not come easily the night of June 15 1971,but I didn't mind. I knew it was the excitement of the new foal and all the responsibility that went with it that kept me awake. The next morning I was up early and dressed in a flash, I ran out the door to see my new horse, and to make sure that it was not just dream. He was drinking milk from his mother and stopped for a minute to look at me. I was so in love with him that nothing else in the world Click here to read the rest of this story (169 more lines)
