Hazel's Horse

Today's story is not only for my daughter but by my daughter.

Hazel Prince loved horses. She had all kinds of books about horses. Hazel loved learning all different facts about horses and ponies. One day, when Hazel was in her room she thought of the best idea ever, she would ask her parents for a pet horse. She went into her parents room to find Daddy lying down on the bed reading a book. "Daddy, can I get a pet horse please?" Hazel asked hopefully as she walked over to Daddy.

"Sure, honey." Daddy replied barely listening to what Hazel was asking. He missed the part about pet horse.

Later that day, Hazel was sitting in the kitchen with a paper and a pen. "Mommy, which name do you like best for a horse, Buttercup, Sweetie, Snickerdoddle or Butterscotch?" Hazel asked looking up from her paper.

"I think I like Butterscotch best." Mommy replied not quite understanding why Hazel needed a name for a horse.

"Okay. Thanks, Mommy." Hazel said picking up her paper and leaving the room. She went into the living room to find her little sister Caroline sitting on the couch watching My Little Pony on the TV. "Hey, Caroline! Guess what!" Hazel said sitting beside her little sister.

"What?" Caroline asked looking up at her sister and away from the TV screen.

"I'm going to get a pet horse. And, I am going to name it Butterscotch." Hazel stated happily. Upon hearing this, Caroline's jaw dropped instantly.

"Mommy and Daddy are getting you a horse? They won't even let me get Puppy!" Caroline stated angrily glaring at Hazel. "This is no fair!"

Hazel went into her room. She went straight to her desk which had her computer on top. She turned on the computer and looked up what to get for a horse. Hazel took a pencil and paper out of her desk drawer and wrote down all the things she would need for her horse. Then, she went onto different pet store websites and looked for the things she needed. "The things to wash Butterscotch are cheaper to get at Pet Market, then at Furry Friends." Hazel said to herself. She needed to find the cheapest way to get all the things she would need. After she finished with that, she looked up different places where she could get Butterscotch. Hazel decided she wanted a little white horse that's name was Snowflake. Although of course when Hazel got her, she was still going to change her name to Butterscotch.

"Hazel, Caroline, it's time for dinner!" Mommy called from downstairs.

"Mommy, how come Hazel can get a horse, but I can't get a puppy?" Caroline asked as she sat down at the diner table.

"Hazel's getting a horse? Mommy asked looking very confused.

"Yes. Daddy said I that I can get one." Hazel explained. Everyone's eyes turned to Daddy.

"I didn't know you wanted a real horse I thought you wanted a stuffed horse. I'm sorry Pumpkin. What if instead of getting you a horse, Hazel, and you a puppy, Caroline, we get you smaller pet to share like a Bunny?" He looked over at Mommy to make sure that she was okay with that idea. She smiled back at him. "How does that sound?" Daddy asked looking back at Caroline and Hazel. Hazel and Caroline looked at each other and then looked back at Daddy.

"Okay." The two girls said at the same time. Hazel might not have gotten a horse, but at least she was getting a pet. Maybe someday she would finally get a horse.
