This is an essay I wrote for a school assignment. I love to write, and really enjoyed writting this essay! I think this is one of my best essays ever and is definitely my favorite! I truly love horses, especially my favorite girl down at the NHSPCA Scarlet! I hope when you read this, you can see why horses are so special to me! ~Declan

The horse is a wonderful, mysterious creature. Horses are so wonderful because you can form a connection with them and have an exciting relationship with them. I love to visit my local shelter and visit the horses. I have one favorite, and her name is Scarlet. I love to lie down and watch her trot around in the hot sun. I also like to rub her and groom her.
When I visit Scarlet, I hear her hooves pounding. They sound like thunder boldly booming and cannons firing swiftly down to earth. I hear a whinny and see her prance around in the beautiful sparkling sand on the ground. She snorts as she flicks her tail as fast as lightening in a great storm! When I look at her I feel wonderful and want to be with her. I hear her snort happily as I feed her treats.
I smell that wild and free, good smelling scent, as I caress her glossy mane. I see her beauty as she runs and the sun gloriously reflects off her hind legs. I think if God made anything more beautiful and glorious he would have kept it for himself. As I smell the treats I give to her, my nose scrunches up at the delectable smell. I see her graceful head as she takes a drink of the new, fresh, and clean water I just gave her. I also hear the loud slurps as she gulps down some of the water. Then she looks at me, and seems to be saying “more, more, more!” I laugh and rub her smooth back as she eats.
I watch her rip up the grass as if she is ripping paper, and imagine it might taste bitter and maybe a little dull. I see Scarlet eat hay, and I imagine it might taste like hard spaghetti. It makes me want to eat seeing Scarlet eat. I want to eat a big, juicy, lovely shade of orange clementine!
I love Scarlet and wish she was my horse. She is so great! I would love to be a horse, and be her brother! It would be so awesome to be a horse. It would be a piece of heaven to be a horse. Horses are a joy to be with any time. I feel a glorious feeling, like joy rushing into my heart when I am with a horse! I hope I can have a horse of my own one day.
