I bet I know what your thinking, what would that title mean? Well here it goes.
On Melbourne Cup day, I missed the day of school because we were going to test out some horses for sale! 🙂 We had a two and a half hour drive past Melbourne and into the country. I had my mum’s laptop, my Ipod and a book. I almost slept half the time, but my excitment kept me awake.
The first horse was, Sweet Sorento Moon, he was so beautiful, but a little awkward to ride. When you were riding him, it felt like he was going to trot or whatever gait was next, so it would be hard to tell if he would spook or bolt on you. But then he started to trot off on me, then he had a little canter I think, and before I knew it, I was on the ground winded. My lower back was so sore, I couldn’t even sit down and relax, so the ride home was uncomfortable.
Despite my pain, we stopped at another little place on the way home. There was a little New Forest pony there. His name was, Nim. I couldn’t download any photos, but he sort of looks like this, exept for the star on his forehead:
He’s five years old (a little young) and was so adorable. I couldn’t ride, but my younger sister did. He was very quiet and looked perfect, a black body and light brown around his eyes and muzzle (nose). My dad went somewhere with the owner and came back saying he was ours! :)We came up with a three barreled name, Nimrod Nelson Mandela, it is a little weird, but it suits him. 🙂
