A day of Firsts.
« on: February 04, 2005, 09:20:44 pm »
 Fatimah sat on the tack

trunk contemplating tomorrow. It would be her first race, with her first horse. She glanced

to the side as Cue popped his head over the stable door.   A slight smile curled the corners

of her lips as he shook his head. He rolled his eye and looked at her, then with a resounding

snort, his head dissapeared again.

He could be such a chit.

She had listened carefully

to the trainer and  had decided to run him tomorrow with a figure eight noseband and a shadow

roll. Hopefully it would help. His running was as inconsistant as his mood. He was fit, and

seemed to getting more energetic as the race neared. She wondered, abscently if he could

sense the race tomorrow.

The nervous flutters in her stomach were probably not going to

subside until the race was run. Getting to her feet, she dusted off her bottom and uttered a

short thank you to the powers that be, that there could be only one, first race with her

first horse.

 (Just as a side note...I

love the British sound of the word "chit" reminds me so much of my extended family :))
