"Ellen, we are going to look at a horse for me today! Im so excited!" Shelby said as she finished talking to her mum. I was at her house that day. My best friend has loved horses ever since we met 4 years ago. I already had Tess my pinto mare and she had wanted one ever since.
"im coming too!" I said back to her as I was more experienced when it came to horses then her.
So we hopped in the car and off we went to look at two horses, ponies actually. On the way, I got a phone call from my mum and she said " we are going to look at a pony for your brother, he is a little stallion named Zorro" I was so excited to have another horse on our property. But I soon forgot about Zorro. I would see him the next day as we had bought him. Tess and Zorro were running up and down the fence calling with tails held high.
Meanwhile, we arrived at our destination. A small place with shetland ponies everywhere.
"hi" said the lady "have you come to look at gem and chloe? They are over here"
So we followed to a little round yard with two ponies tied up to the fence. One was a little bay welsh/shetland, chloe and was about 11hh. The second one was a cute little black shetland mare, Gemma.
So they were both rode around the arena and seemed very quiet and willing to please. In fact Gem seemed perfect. Shelby fell in love with Gem and they decided to buy her. She would be floated to Shelby's house in a week. Shelby was so excited but little did she, or I, know that Gem would change....
