    New Horse

    My riding instructer replaced my favorite pony. My favorit pony was Knick Knack. He got hurt and she gave him to her blacksmith. Now I ride his replacement Tic-Tac. Tic Tac needs alot of training. He is so f**king fast. I can hardly stop him when he's at a canter. It's so scary...

    The Biker Gang and the Runaway
