'But Grandma he deserves it after all he did save my life' she pleaded to her Grandma, 'Okay dear but you'll have to save up for it' she told Eyrss as she got into the car.
' Grandma how am I supposed to save up for it if I'm not earning any money?' Eyrss asked as she buckled her seat belt
'Well I'll give you a list of chores and you'll earn a fortnightly allowance but only if you do your chores well' her Grandma said.
'Thankyou Grandma and I promise I'll do my chores well' Eyrss said thinking of what Aspen would look like in the halter.

ok another quick note, um where on earth are you finding 30$ leather halters? And can you hook me up? I mean there are some around here that are 30$ but not like you're describing.

Over the bast few weeks, Eryss had been doing chore after chore for her grandmother but was nowhere near the money she needed for the halter. She complained about it to Claire (sp? Clare?) after class one day. "you know" Claire began "my Mom has been talking about hiring someone to work a couple evenings a week at the cafe" Claire's Mom ran a little cafe that was attached to her father's tack and feed store, it was always full of locals and sold homemade treats for both horse and human. "really easy stuff, cash mostly but there might be some helping in the back when it's slow" She continued, Eryss gave her friend a a look of shock, the last place Eryss belonged as a kitchen "oh relax it'd just be chopping veggies and doing a few dishes, no cooking" Claire laughed.

"I'll have to think about it and ask Grandma of course" Eyrss said to Clare.
"Okay but you will have to let me know by Thursday"Clare said as they walked to the bus stop.
'How is Aspen'? Clare asked her.
"He is great, Grandpa is teaching me how to lunge him, and pick up his feet" Eyrss said excitedly.
"That's great is it alright if I could come over on Saturday"? Clare asked.
'Sure then you can help me with Aspen' Eyrss said as she climbed onto the bus.


Is it Eyrss or Eryss?

Her name is Eryss. I know the name is sort of weird but when I posted it I was expecting some kind of fantasy epic,

This space has been left intentionally blank.

I was thinking that too wen I first read it but the second poster went in a completely different direction...
We could start another but state a setting (specifically that of the time variety)

Yeh I wasnt really thinking about pricing the halter when I was writing that bit, I just really wanted to get my thoughts down. Well, lets pretend its the bst halter in the shop and that the shop is overpriced :)

If I am not riding I'm thinking about horses, and if I am not thinking about horses I'm riding

"Hey Grandma Clare's mum needs someone to help in her cafe on weekends is it okay if I take the job?" Eryss asked her Grandma as she swept the front verandah.
Her Grandma walked over to her pot plants and started watering them,"If you think that you can keep up your other chores and your homework I don't see why not".she said.
'Thankyou Grandma and don't worry I'll keep up my other chores and my homework'. Eryss said giving her Grandma a hug.
...
'Aspen, ASPEN where are you Eryss called out looking into to the big empty paddock' she had gone to feed him only to find his stall empty, she was starting to panic when she heard Grandpa calling put to her,'Its okay he's here with me in the arena'.
Eryss breathed a sigh of relief and ran toward the arena when she stopped dead in her tracks right in front of her was a snake 'GRANDPA come quickly there a snake' screamed at the top of her lungs.
She stood as still as she could and waited for Grandpa who came running around the corner with a rifle in his hand ' stand absolutely still ' he told her as he aimed the gun at the rattle snake. Eryss nodded her head she hopeing like never before that he wouldnt miss it.
He fired and hit the snake just behind its head it fell into a heap.
'Its still moving' Eryss exclaimed pointing to the snake.
Her Grandpa walked over to her and put his arm around her shoulder ' that's just it's nerves now are you okay ?' he answered.
' yes just a little shaken that's all , what were you doing with aspen?' said Eryss.
'come and see ' he replied smiling.
They walked over to the big arena and there was Aspen tied to the rail with an old saddle on his back.
