"Ruth you can't just go out and buy random horses from an auction. I sent you there to buy a few cows for the farm. You know you don't even have enough potential to ride a horse." Linda said furiously at her step-daughter.
Ruth lay sleepily on the couch as her step-mom yelled at her like always. Linda kept yelling so Ruth just sort of started to daydream about barrel racing with her new horse. Slowly Linda's voice faded away as Ruth fell deeper into her daydream. She could hear the announcer calling her and Boston's name over the speaker. She could hear the crowd roar as she came out of the alley.
Ruth felt the wind in her hair and Boston's body gracefully running beneath her. They turned around the barrels like nothing. She could see first place dead ahead until she started hearing two annoying, bratty voices- her step-sisters.
Ruth came out of the day dream and sat up. She wiped her eyes and asked her sisters what they had said. "Can you hear? I said go clean my room before I tell mom," Hannah growled. Ruth rolled her eyes and stood up to go clean Hannah's room. "Oh, and don't forget to wash the dishes. They are piled high in the sink." Ashley, Hannah's twin sister, barked. Ruth pushed her way through the two brats and walked down the hallway. Her face turned red as she heard the two giggle behind her.
Instead of doing as she was told, Ruth walked out to the barn to see Boston. Her day just seemed to get a little bit better. Ruth searched around for some tack in the storage room and brought a saddle, saddle pad, and a bridle.
She got right to work on trying to clean the old worn out things. She looked up from her work and said," We are going to be the best barrel racers in the world." She smiled and wiped the sweat from her brow.
