“Will Josh be okay, daddy?” Kylie asks, staring out the living room window.
“He should be,” Her dad joins her by the window.
Kylie turns to her dad, “But he’s so young and I’ve read foals should live in a warm place.”
“Don’t you worry, if Josh is in trouble, I’ll know ASAP. Come on, there’s an apple pie waiting in the kitchen. It’s your favorite.” Kylie hops off the window-seat and heads to the kitchen with her dad. Outside, Ivory watches as Kylie leaves the window-seat. Her foal, Josh, snuggles beside her. Who says horses don’t get cold?
Note: This is only my opinion. I have never owned a horse. I have ridden a horse and watched a documentary about horses. What I am saying is I don’t know if horses get cold but if I’m wrong, think of this as a cartoon and the horses are humans.
