    “Why is he so grumpy?” She asked no one in particular but since Jason Cutter was the only other person in the barn, he naturally assumed the question was aimed at him.

    “We’re pushing him to hard. He’s a nasty little beast right now but if we’d back off and move at his pace, we’d have a right nice horse.” The horse pinned his ears as he tightened the girth. He tried to reach over and take a chunk out of Jakes arm but Lacey pulled his head forward.
    “Then why push so hard?” She asked. It seemed like a simple enough solution. Take a step back and give the horse room to breath.

    “Dad.” He shrugged his shoulders. It was becoming clear that the two Cutter men did not always see eye to eye on breeding and training practices. He handed her a bridle, then grabbed a halter from the rack on the wall and headed off to find another horse. Lacey struggled with the feisty beast for a few minutes but didn’t have a big problem getting it on. She turned around just as Mr. Cutter came up from the ring, ready to trade horses.

    “Think I heard an extra clink in his step.” Mr. Cutter said. “Check the shoe, if it’s loose, call Gene.” He grumbled as he left her with a tired animal.
    “Yes sir.” Lacey uncinched the saddle and following Jakes example, she let it fall to the ground. It landed with a thump beneath the gelding’s belly. The horse snorted lightly and shifted to the side but other than that, showed no signs of upset. She tied him for a moment while she picked the dirt form his feet and jiggled his shoes. Sure enough, the right front had pulled loose.

    It had pulled so loose in fact that when she pulled at it, the shoe shifted sideways.
    "Oops." She mumbled to herself as the horse tried to yank his foot away. She struggled with him for a moment, when he stopped attempting to pull his foot away she tried to push the shoe back into place without any success. Finally she yanked it until it pulled completely off before letting him set it down.

    A quick call to the farrier and three horses later they broke for lunch. The farrier came late in the afternoon and Lacy ended up staying longer than she had planned. She had begun to think the day would never end. She was exhausted and covered in grime when she climbed into her mothers car. The clock on the radio read six o'clock. Her mother had been waiting over an hour. There was a book in the empty drivers seat. She picked it up and read the back cover. It was about a cowboy down on his luck and the widow next door.
    "How do you read this stuff?" She mumbled setting the book aside. She pulled the rearview mirror down and quickly shoved it away when she saw her dirt smudged face. Where was her mother? She got out of the car and headed towards the lesson barn in search of her.

    Absolutely love this. You've inspired me to keep going with my writing that is collecting dust! It's so hard to write a GOOD horse story, even harder to find a good one to read, so thank you!
