Once there was a Blossom pony. She had a fuzzy pink coat. She was the color of apple blossoms, so she was given the name Blossom.
Blossom lived at Pony Acres Play School. All the boys and girls loved her dearly, and she loved all the children. Every morning, she would welcome all the children with a "Happy nay, nay, nay!"
The children loved to ride Blossom. What fun it was to sit high in the saddle and go clip-clop around the ring. That was because Blossom was gentle and patient.
Blossom was the prettiest pony in the whole world. Every morning, the children took turns brushing her coat until she was a shining pink.
Meghan, Ansley, and Adam said, "Isn't she a pretty pony? Isn't she beautiful?"
Isabella, Gabriellla, Daniella, and Christian said, "Isn't she different? We never saw a Blossom Pony before!"
This should have made Blossom very happy, but it didn't. Why didn't people say "Isn't she a good pony" or "Isn't she a kind pony"? Then Blossom would know that people loved her for herself and not because she was so pretty.
She had to find out the truth.
So one day, she slipped through the fence.
Off she went into the world to find out the truth.
At first, Blossom walked very slowly. To be free felt so strange. All roads lead to the world, so away she galloped down the road. Blossom ate whatever she could find. There was a bit of tall grass here some brush there.
Once, she walked into an apple orchard and ate her fill of ripe juicy apples that had fallen to the ground.
Another time, she wandered into a cornfield. Nothing tasted as good as the fresh sweet corn.
Blossom wasn't content to stay in one place very long because she had to keep looking for the truth.
To her surprise, she came across the most beautiful garden of flowers. She was amazed at the display of beautiful colors.
