Crimson’s Creative Challenge #83 – Childhood Memories.



Crisp, my aged companion, thought the horse closest to us looked like Old Ned, the horse her grandfather had and the one who gave her the most grief when she visited as a child.
“We’d go down to his farm each Christmas. Mum insisted we visit and Grandad loved having us there. He’d have us up at the crack of dawn, which in those days was around 4.30am. ‘Come on,’ he’d say, ‘there’s lots to do and Ned wants to see you.’
So we dragged ourselves out of bed dreading what cantankerousness Ned was going to display. Grandad gave me a handful of hay to feed Ned and when I went close to him, holding out the hay he head-butted me sending me flying across the barn floor. Grandad thought it hilarious, but I didn’t, and I refused to go near Ned again. Which I think suited Ned as he didn’t like kids only Grandads.”
