The diary of a horse
by Crazy horse lover
Hi, I'm Ash. I'm a mustang and live in Montana where I am with my herd and my mother. I'm a foal.
One day, I'm laying in the grass when I hear a rumbling. It gets louder and louder until my mothers yells "Run, run! Follow me!"
They all run away and I try to get up in a hurry but because of that I stumble and fall to the ground. I watch as my herd frantically races to safety. Then I see it, Cowboys! I get up and look around frantically for a hiding place. I run to a dead shrub and watch as they race past chasing my family, my mother, my friends!
A tear rolls down my cheek as a cowboy turns around and notices me! I run my heart out but I knew I couldn't outrun an adult stallion so I feel a hard rope around my neck and I struggle to get out of it's harsh grip. "Gotcha," says the cowboy, "where's your momma, little guy? We'll find her and catch her." But I was not listening. I was still rearing and bucking. I wanted my momma!
As the Cowboy gallops away, I follow and we get to my herd where other cowboys are trying to catch everyone. I see my momma! "Guys get that mare! She's this little one's dam!" So he tries to catch her and she rears up to his stallion. "Give me my baby!" She whinnies furiously. "No can do, sorry baby," he says as he grins mischievously to her. "Don't you call me that!" And the rope slides around her neck. "Got her! Let's go guys!" The cowboy says.
"Ash! I'm so sorry I left you I was in a hurry and I couldn't find you!" She says as she nuzzles me.
"It's okay but we need to get out!"
"No use baby. Too hard but I'll try."
As she rears up, I buck and pull. "Woah, there girl," he says and pulls us away.
A few minutes later we arrive at a strange thing that my mother calls a trailer.
