Story of the Day #40by William Thabiso
One day there was a beautiful white horse. she lived in the snowy mountains far away. she was very happy, except that she didn’t want to live alone. so she decided to go on a journey to find the one horse that would be her best friend!
She traveled very far and came to a hot and dry land. it was quite different from her home in the snow. Soon she saw a horse that was also very different from her. he was as black as the night. the two horses became best friends and also fell in love.
One day while they were eating some grass, a lion jumped out from the bushes with a roar! Both horses were so frightened that their hair stood up straight! And, when they turned to run away, they ran straight into each other! the lion was very surprised to see the two horses all tangled up. Their legs, necks and tails were twisted together so that it was hard to tell which horse was which! The lion laughed and laughed so hard, rolling on the ground, that he realized he wasn’t hungry anymore and left the zebras, wiping the tears from his eyes as he went.
Finally the two horses got untangled. But, when they looked at each other they were both very surprised. there wasn’t a white horse or a black horse any more, but one white horse with black stripes, and one black horse with white stripes.
Later, when they had a family, all of their babies had black and white stripes and short hair sticking straight up. the other animals in the jungle decided to call them Zebras instead of horses. the horses didn’t mind, they still loved each other and their family.
