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.
If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.
