A very naughty horse

by Lottie Prentice

Not that kind of tail, this kind of tale! This is a tale of a very naughty horse:

“Once upon a time there was a beautiful grey horse called Ted. He was very very handsome. He loved to gallop and jump big fences.”

But Ted was a very, very naughty horse. So naughty in fact that he had to be kept in a stable all on his own and in a field far, far away …”

Ted is a beautiful and talented horse who loves to gallop and jump big fences. He is also very very naughty. He regularly bites the farrier and terrifies the vet. But his antics don’t stop there! Join Rhino the Jack Russell, Barney the owl and the sheep next door and discover just how naughty Ted can be …
