The leaping foal

This morning I looked out at my garden and saw a baby horse, a foal, leaping about on the grass underneath the tree. It was a lovely thing to see. The foal was so happy and very playful. I think he must have escaped from the farm yesterday and followed us home to my cottage. When I had finished my breakfast and had given the foal some carrots I took him back to the farm. The farmer was so relieved to see him as he had been missing for the whole night. The foal was very naughty leaving the farm without telling his mother where he was going.  Everyone was so worried about him but it all ended well as he is safe back at home again now.
