I dont know how old you are. But just some pointers on your grammar/word choices. Im not sure who your intended audience are, but as someone being older, your story is cool but the word choices seem repetetive. So look at a thesaurus to look up different word choices. As an author myself, I can tell you that thesauruses are very helpful. Because using different word choices makes your story or character seem smarter. And it honestly helps with the flow. Again your talent at being able to create vivid imagery is astonishing, and especially your attention to detail. Just minor things such as word choices (also known as diction) helps make your writing have more wit and also proffesionalism. But great 2nd chapter, ive read all your chapters so far:)

"Hurry up slowpokes!" Issy called to her friends. "We're coming, we're coming!" Her friends called. Thunder shouted "I think i stepped on a thorn!" "Its ok we'll be there soon." She called back. They trotted off into the sunset as everyone shouted in awe "its so beautiful!" They kept going until they made it to the lake. When they got there the sunset was reflecting off of the lake. "Wow!" Hey all called in awe. Issy galloped to the far end her friends close behind. Then she took a big drink. She thought i wonder how the humans feel on two legs and not on four. And how they eat and drink. I wonder a lot of things about them. She drunk some more and then popped her head up, water dripping down her chin. "Hey guys." She gurgled with water still in her mouth. "I think i heard something over there." She said nodding her head in the direction the sound came from. They wanted to cross but they had to be back soon. "Guys wanna sing a song on the way back." Issy asked. "Ya!" They all said and started the song. "Wow oh oh wow oh oh your hot or your cold!" They sung. They dropped off their friends and finally, Thuder left. "Bye!" The friends called. Then Issa went home. "My little Issy." Her mom called. "Are you home." "Ya." Issa said as she trotted into the den. She yawned and then turned a circle in her bed. She layed down and closed her eyes. Then she fell asleep.
