Here's another blast from my Scholastic past:The Secret Horse by Marion Holland is the story of two girls who steal a horse from an animal shelter and hide him in the abandoned stables of a neighbor's estate. Although parts of the story strain believability, its tattered cover is evidence of multiple re-reads.
Yesterday I got a horse sized box in the mail.
This is what was inside.He's not mine, though. Like Highboy, Sarasmis is a secret horse.
One of my friends--I won't say who!--asked me if I would be willing to receive a package for her. In the interest of marital harmony, she thought it would be better if her husband didn't see another brand new horse arriving on their doorstep. Of course, I told her it would be fine. When it comes to model horse addictions, I am an enabler. And besides, who doesn't want to get a Sue Kern custom in the mail?
If anyone else would like to send me secret horses, please feel free. I promise I won't feed them grass clippings, and I might even give them back!
