If I Turned into An Animal
I once read a story about a girl named Maya who owned a pet horse, Filly. When I saw the friendship they shared, I thought it would be such fun to be a horse.
What kind of a horse would I like to be? Would I be a majestic, thoroughbred race horse or a small pet pony? I decide I want to be a pony like Filly. My owner is a small boy called Jeet and I live on his father’s farm in Karjat. I have a dark brown coat and a full mane and tail. I have small white patches on my body because of which my owner names me Spotty.
On the weekends, Jeet brings me my favourite treats; apples, carrots, sugar cubes and occasionally, horse candy. After I gulp them down, I take Jeet for a nice long ride through the meadows. At the lake, we both stop and refresh ourselves with the cool water. He lies down on his back and tells me about his school, friends and teachers. He shares all his secrets with me because he says I am his best friend. I feel so happy when he says he loves me more than anything else in the world.
I am very excited because I will be travelling to the city next month, to be a part of a horse show. I am going to win the ‘Best Pony Award’ and make Jeet proud of me.
Who says only dogs are a man’s best friend? I think horses can be a man’s best friend too!
