We live next to a primary school and the young boys tend to always climb on the fences making them loose.
We had our ponies Marlea, Missy and Moo in that paddock.
One friday night we were all sitting down about to watch a movie, and there was flashing lights on our driveway, we ran to the window to see who it was and there was a police car coming up our drive way.
Mum and dad told me to stay here and they ran out to see what the police officer wanted. They were out there for about an hour and I was begining to get really scared.
They came back in, and dad told me that Missy and Moo got out and were on the road, but they were ok and they were both back in the paddock now.
The next morning dad came into me and told me that Missy had been hit by a car, and he didn't want to tell me last night because it would upset me too much.
The lady that hit Missy in her car was an elderly woman and had to go to hospital for minor injuries.
Moo saw the whole thing happen and I'm telling you know, she wouldn't eat or drink for a week. She was obviously devistated to loose her best friend.
Please, check your fences regulrly so what happened to little missy won't happen to your pony or horse.
