Runaway Pony

Chatper One

Judy

When Radish was a round, red, bouncy young pony, his little girl's name was Judy.

Before he got Judy, Radish lived on a big pony farm. He ran and played with the other ponies. He learned to go fast. He learned to think for himself.

A trainer taught Radish to let himself be ridden. She was a good rider. Radish had to do whatever she wanted.

Then Judy's parents came to the farm. "We want a pony for our little girl," Judy's father said.

"Radish is my best pony," said the trainer. "He's smart and he's brave. But he does have a mind of his own."

"So does Judy," said Judy's mother, and they brought Radish home to be Judy's pony.

Judy was small. She couldn't make Radish do anything. Most of the time she couldn't even catch him.

Radish liked that.

He liked the carrots Judy fed him.

He liked teaching her just where to scratch his neck.

And he liked scaring Judy, just a little.

Judy got bigger. Her mother taught her how to ride. Radish taught Judy other things.

He taught her the right way to fall.

He taught her to tie good knots.

He taught her to remember garbage-pickup day, and to keep her temper, and to hold on tight.

The more Judy learned, the bossier she got. She thought she could make Radish do anything. She thought she could ride just as well as the trainer.

Radish knew that wasn't true. He just waited, while Judy yelled, and kicked him in the sides, and smacked him with the riding whip, and bounced in the saddle.

When Judy stopped having a tantrum, Radish taught her something else. He taught her that if she asked nicely, he would almost always do what she wanted.
