When we returned home from our holiday we unpacked the car. I couldn't wait to go and see my Baby.I didn't want to nag my mom so I waited till everyone settled till I asked to go see him. I walked up to him, when he saw me he neighed at me and start walking up to me. I hugged his neck and his white mane flowed into my jet black hair, everything was just perfect for that second like nothing else mattered." I will come and fetch him tommorow afternoon after we went to town to get his food", I told Oscar. "No problem", Oscar said. Oscar told me how naught Zeutan was, he broke into the tack room and ate almost half a months pellets and didn't want Oscar to take him back to his stall. I just laughed because I know what trouble he can be. The next morning we went to town to go get some groceries and Zeutan's food. I slept all the way home. When we arrived home we unpacked the shopping bags and drove over to Oscar's. "You can take him but I think the rain wil start soon", Oscar said. "I'll take the chance !" I said. I don't want to have him stay over another day, I want my horsey home with me! I saddled up and mount Zeutan while Oscar and my mom talked in the kitchen. I laid on and stroke his neck gently, I realized his mane has grow a lot its almost past his neckline. "What are you waiting for ? Let's go! ", Oscar said with a smile. I smiled back and pushed Zeutan into a walk. We made a turn into the main road to to town and walked slowly, I was really on my nerves. It was getting dark and it started to rain,home was stil a long way to go and the road was getting busy with big trucks and vehicles passing by. It felt like the wind from the truck was going to knock us over and Zeutan was frightened. My mom and Oscar drove beside me next to the road to prevent Zeutan from running to the road. Zeutan pulled hard on the reins and I struggled to control him because he kept turning back the way to Oscar's farm and when I pulled back he rear in the air so I had to make circles with him. Oscar got out of the car and said he should ride because he could handle him better than me. I just kept my mouth shut and let him ride. He walked a few steps then Zeutan turned around again and he pulled back on the reins, hard. Zeutan tried to rear and when he did Oscar hit him behind the head and he rear again, this time Oscar pulled on the reins Zeutan lost balance and fell over on the ground. I quickly got out of the car and ran to see if they were okay. Oscar's leg was hurt badly but he could still manage to walk. None of Oscar's three friends wanted to ride Zeutan because they were all to scared. I mounted Zeutan, not really wanting anybody else to ride him at that moment. I pushed him and he went into a walk with no problems. It was raining hard now and my eyes were burning. While we were riding the only thing I could think of was having Zeutan at safety, I wanted to protect him, give him all my love, the only thing he needed was love. I don't know what happened in his past, how they treated him, there must be a reason why he is like this. Then I realized he was nothing more than a reflection of myself, my life, my parents threw me around in life at a young age, people pushed me around and misused me, I had heartbreaks, backstabbers, everything made me what I am today but Zeutan don't care about my past, he don't care about my looks, he's just thankful for what I'm doing for him now and I don't care about his past or the way he behaves about it, I just love him for what he is in my life now. We came to the gate of the village and I saw there where two new horses in Zeutan's camp. I called Krista and said we want to put Zeutan in the camp, he's back. "I'm on my way". She said and hang up. That was rude I thought to myself. Mr. Taylor and Krista removed the Friesian mares from our camp and we led Zeutan in his camp and gave him his food and filled his water. The Taylors was gone before we could greet or anything. "Who stole their milk?", I asked my mom. She pulled up he shoulders and said: "I have no idea". I thanked Oscar and apologized about his leg and offerd to pay the doctor's bill. He didn't want me to.
