Sample text:

I didn’t sleep at all last night! All I did was toss and turn, worrying about my baby! What’s going to happen to her? And why is she like this in the first place! It just doesn’t make any sense. How can my dream pony suddenly become my worst nightmare?

She was so scary in the paddock yesterday, when Janice was longeing her. I can’t believe she was actually willing to hop on Tara after seeing how crazy she was behaving!

I’m so relieved that Mom and Dad disagree with Janice though! They can’t understand it either but definitely don’t think Tara’s been drugged. Mom said that she’s going to talk to some people from pony club who might be able to help. Thank goodness for that! I was so worried about how they’d react to all of this. Surely now we can find someone to help her! We have to find the cause, we just have to!

And then we have to get her back to the way she was.

But is that going to be possible??



Friday 8 August

Last night, Mom called one of the parents from pony club. A little while ago, he told her about a man who is not only a very experienced horse trainer but also a horse healer. Apparently he worked wonders with their daughter’s pony, Rocco who was behaving really badly and wasn’t able to be ridden. So Mom decided to get his details so she could ask him about Tara. Now he’s coming over on Sunday afternoon to have a look at her.

I’m so glad he can come and I hope he can help!!!
