After leading Zanzy into the stall I stood quite for a moment. I listened to the jingles of the spurs, the echo of boots walking down the long barn. I remembered Coke, in the stall next door. "Hey Coke," I murmured, "How are ya'?" "May I ride him?" I heard a small voice from the tack room, Emily stepped out, head down facing her feet, quiet.
After thinking for a little while, I answered "Tell you what; I'll give you lessons on Coke if you feed, water, and care for him. If care for him well enough after a couple weeks, I'll let you call him yours. I'll teach you his tricks, and how to use him...." Emily skipped off with a smile on her face, I smiled too. I kept brushing Coke, You'll love Emily, I thought, She's never ridden before, so be careful with her.
If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.
