Chapter OneJen loved horses. She loved reading about horses. She even dreamed about horses.
"Could I please get a horse?" Jen asked her mom and dad. "We don't have money for a horse," Mom said. "Where would you keep a horse?" Dad asked.
Then one day after school, there was a horse! A big, big horse was eating grass. The horse was in Mrs. Gray's yard. "You have a horse!" Jen cried.
Mrs. Gray frowned. She said, "I thought it was an elephant. My brother can't care for old Bob. Now I have to care for him."
