The White Buckskin.

I tossed the saddle up on my 15 hand Foundation Quarter Horse, Coconino, and jumped on. I boarded Coke at Valley Farms, they have 200 acres of trails including a hot walker, round pen, and really long arena near the 25 stall barn. We walked out into the desert trails where Nevada summer heat came down on us. We were plodded along when I heard hoof thud on the desert rock. I whipped around to see a nearly white buckskin chase off in the distance. Was I dreaming or was this a true? Wild mustangs always roam the 200 acres but this close? She turned off the man made trail and kicked Coke to catch up to the mustang. He started racing toward him and when I saw him Coke did a sliding stop. She hopped off and watched the Stallion as Coke grazed. The Stallion looked up at me and took 2 cautious steps closer, watching my every move. In 10 minutes he was up 2 inches from putting his muzzle in my open hand when he bolted off.

So, what do you think? Should I continue? What should happen?

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

I hopped on Coke and loped off searching through the desert, in hopes of spotting the mustang again or any sign of mustangs. When I got back to the barn I un-tacked Coke and grabbed my netbook and looked up "The White Buckskin" and a photo showed up

It was the Stallion as a colt! I then saw a link that said The White Buckskin Legend. I opened the link and read "Only one White Buckskin roams the desert ground. He is always on his own, no herd, no group. He will choose one person, but he must choose closely. If you have more than one encounter, you are the one." I closed my netbook and packed it up. I looked at the time, 5:00 already? Where's dad? He should have picked me up by know! Just when I was getting impatient my dad showed up. "Dad, can I stay tonight?" I asked. He sighed and replied "OK, just don't cause them any havoc. I hear tomorrows a big day for these guys, stay a couple nights, between you and me, mom's a little stressed out." I chuckled and jogged off. I went into the office and asked what made tomorrow so big. The barn manager said it was a huge trail ride. I said I'll come along since my dad said I can sleep in the barn for a couple days. But I'm studying a mustang out there so I might leave for a bit.en you and me, mom's a little stressed out." I chuckled and jogged off. I went into the office and asked what made tomorrow so big. It was a trail ride. When I left the office I had permission to go on the trail ride but leave if I needed to.

I like it!!! If you weren't looking for tips you an ignore this, but try not to use "I" as a sentence starter. It can start to sound repetitive after a while! Also at the end, what the people were saying, I would have recieved better if it was in dialague form; otherwise it was a tad confusing ;) but overall it's a really interesting story and I want more!!!

OK, I'll write in a bit. I'll also work on changing it.

I think it's pretty good so far.

Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

The next day came sooner than I hoped. I was woken up by a shake. I had slept in the hayloft. I opened my eyes to see Melanie 2 inches above my face. As soon as reality stepped in I lept back, shocked. "Are you riding or not?" Melanie questioned, "I tacked up Cokey for you, do you mind?" Her high blonde ponytail flipped around. My brunette hair would never be as silky as her hair. "His name is Coke," I murmured, "He won't reply to Cokey, OK Melanie?" "Okay" she replied and was up on Genre before I could say Genre. We loped up to the crowd. I looked out into the desert in hopes of finding the White Buckskin. A legend, huh? Well, every legend deserves a true name, I thought. When were 10 minutes up the trail I spotted Zanzibar. Zanzibar would be my name for him. I looked over to Melanie and pointed my finger towards the desert, she gave me a puzzled look, shook her head, and continued to walk. I dismounted Coke and ground tied him. Zanzibar trotted towards me, waiting 10 seconds between each 10 strides. He was soon by me. I stroked all over his body. I grabbed the halter on Coke's horn and put it on Zanzibar. I had managed to gain enough trust to have him follow me back to the barn. My dad had always reserved another stall for me, and it came in handy now. I got Zanzibar in the stall and threw him 1 flake of food. At first he lept back at the hay, not knowing what it was, then got to eating it. I brushed as he ate, talking to him and calming him. I called my dad. I asked him to take me to the tack shop. I told him I was selling all of Coke's tack to get him new stuff. I couldn't let him know about my mustang.

At the tack shop I purchased a saddle, a pad, 3 halters, 3 lead ropes, a water bucket, a hay bag, a bridle, reins, a fly sheet and mask, and every other thing for my Stallion. I came back and said hi to Zanzibar. Emily was in there, with my mustang stallion. What was it the page said about him. Oh. My. God. The White Buckskin will not cooperate with another person besides "The One" for all that long.

"EMILY!" I screamed. I dropped my bags of tack and racing into Zanzibar's stall. I ran over to Zanzibar and shoved Emily off to the side. "What the heck Chloe?" Emily said, angry. "Look," I said, "This is the White Buckskin, I tamed him down. If you know anything about wild mustangs you would know he'll won't tolerate you for too long. OK? Just stay out of his stall. And by the way, his name is Zanzibar." I pulled out the name tag that said Zanzibar that I was able to trick my parents into getting me and placed it on his stall. I also pulled out the rope halter and walked into his stall. He gave me a welcoming nudge as if saying "Hey, what are we doing now?" I showed him the halter and tried to it on. He allowed me to put it on. I took him to the round pen. He had the build of a Luisanto and the shine of an Akal-Teke. Emily sat gazing at my new beauty. She worked as the groom at the barn and she had no horse. I took him in to the round pen and gained his trust. We had a true bond. I took out my new brushes and brushed him and brushed him. I turned him out in one of the irregated turnouts to graze. When I put him in he stayed by my side. He was surefooted as a Donkey when he nearly stepped on me. "Easy boy, it's alright Zanzy." I soothed, "Eaaasy....Uh-Oh! Go Zanzy! My buddy's are coming!" I ran down the slope with Zanzy by my side. The riders were coming quickly and I it took me a while to understand. I pulled Zanzy to a stop, and grabbed and handful of his pitch black mane. I closed my eyes for a moment and started pulling myself up.
