My summer holidays Jessica My holidays were nothing special ! I looked after my horses every day and had to help at home. In the afternoon I sometimes met my friends.
My horses are very important to me! We have 6 horses. 2 belong to my sister, 2 to my father and 2 to me. The horses of my sister are called Carima and Joshi, my father’s horses are Grandeur and Flash and my horses are called Valeska and Balou.

What does it mean to have a horse? You must be with your horses every day and manure the paddocks (except you want to pay for it), and move the horses! We must also brush the horses and clean their hooves. We must call the blacksmith from time to time! The vet must also come to do the vaccination. Some horses might have diseases, and it must be treated specially . Normally you must pay to rent the boxes.
