The following story comes to us from Amherst, Nova Scotia. The author, Peter Breau, is enrolled at Cumberland Adult Network for Upgrading (CAN-U).
When summer time comes I like to stop along side of the road to look at the horses. I say to myself, what beautiful animals! On Robert Angus Drive is where the horses are in the pasture. The horses are big and small with many different colours. I get very excited when the horses come running down the field. When I visit, I like to feed apples to the horses. They tend to fight over the apples. The horses get very excited and kick their feet in the air. I don't like it when the winter comes, because I don't get to see the horses out in the pasture. When summer comes back, I like to get out and look at the horses again to see if there are any new ones.
