Me and my Grandma went to a horse auction. She bought me a desk set and a halter for Jack, my horse. When it was time for the horses to sell, the first one out was a palomino Quarter Horse. The minute I saw it I begged my Grandma that I had to have it! After the auction I asked her if I could see it again. She said yes, so we went and looked at it. Then the man who owned it came with a woman. She said she would buy it and I was sad. She said she would give him $1500. My Grandma said she would give him $1600 . He said “All right” and I bought her.
I was so happy. He said he would deliver her to our house first. And we went home. When she got there I rode her up to the barn. She was perfect. I love her. Then I gave her a rest and waited for tomorrow!
