Horse Thief

This is a little story I made up a while ago. I’ve told it to a couple of little kids and they thought it was funny.

There was a girl, and she was on a farm with lots of horses. She was standing outside eating an apple, and one of the horses was standing nearby. Someone needed help in the barn, so the girl went to help them. She set her apple down so she could use both hands.

When she came back, the horse that had been standing nearby was right next to her apple. The horse looked at the girl.

“Don’t you dare take my apple,” the girl said.

The horse looked at the girl, and then he went chomp! and ate the apple in one bite! He tossed his head as if to say, “What are you gonna do about it?”

The girl put her hands on her hips. “I’ll show you what I’m gonna do about it!” she said, and began to chase the horse around the field.

The horse whinnied like he was laughing, and the girl laughed as well. The two ran around the field for a while, and then they both stopped. The horse turned around and put his head down, walking slowly towards the girl as if to say, “I’m sorry.”

“Are you really sorry?” the girl asked, catching her breath.

The horse touched the girl’s shoulder with his nose.

“Okay,” the girl said. “I accept your apology.” She then went to get another apple.

The horse had followed her, and watched as she ate the apple. When the girl was halfway done, the horse looked at the girl and stretched out his neck. He pointed his nose at the apple in her hand as if to say, “May I pleeeaase hab dat apple?”

“Oh, all right,” the girl said and held out the apple. “But only because you asked nicely and didn’t steal it this time!”

The horse grinned a horsey grin and ate the apple happily.
