My Horse Riding Lessons


Ever since I was a little kid I have taken horse-riding lessons in Wyoming. This summer, horse I rode was called Valentine.  She was a golden horse but she died this past winter.  It was so sad, but my horse-riding teacher bought a different horse named Josie.  Josie is big brown horse and she had the cutest colt ever named Star.  Star is a gold color and likes to lick me.  However, my horse-riding teacher decided to let me ride a beautiful black and white horse named Vegas.  At our next lesson, Vegas and I went on a trail ride through the woods.  It was a little hard to move Vegas because he kept ducking his head to eat the grass.   It was a very nice end to my day.

My family got two hamsters on Sunday 1st of August at a nearby pet shop called “Doggy House.”

One of the hamsters is bigger than the other one and we read on the internet that two boy hamsters together could cause a fight and when one wins the other dies so at first I kept asking if we should take the big one back because it seemed to be a bully but Mum said wait and see.

The cage is really cool because on the top of the cage is a small second floor.  a ladder leads up there and the hamsters are pretty happy in their new cage. They especially like running in the running wheel, they go so so fast and it is really funny to watch but they mainly play at night time and they get really noisy. Dad put Olive Oil on the wheel to stop it from squeaking so much.

We’re calling the big one (Mimi’s  hamster) Ash and the little one (my hamster) Shadow. I like the names as they really suit them because of their color, gray.

(We decided to keep the big one.) I will put a photo on later when we take some photos.
