This is my horse, Kate. I got her when she was a baby foal. Taking care of her is a lot of work. I like to do it because I love her. Kate lives in a stable. A stable is a house for horses. She can sleep inside or play outside with all of her friends. Horses eat grass for food. They graze. Kate eats a little, then stops, then eats a little, then stops. All day long! It keeps her healthy. Horses need a lot of exercise. Kate likes to run and jump outside. Sometimes she does a slow jog and sometimes she sprints really fast. I clean Kate’s feet every day. Her mane and tail get messy a lot, just like my hair. I brush them so she looks beautiful. I want to be a riding teacher when I grow up. Maybe one day I’ll teach people and their horses to be star jumpers!
