01. How I longed to play in the meadow or stand dozing[dəʊz] in the shade of the trees.
02. We had great fun rolling, galloping or standing together under the apple trees.

15. One night, not long after James had gone, I woke to the sound of running feet. Suddenly John burst into the house calling, "Wake up, Beauty, It's an emergency!"

25. It wasn't until around midnight that help finally came. I was so glad to hear a voice I knew, coming from close by.
26. It was good to have my freedom again although I missed the company of the other horses, especially my dear friend Ginger. So imagine my excitement when on day Ginger was led into the field.
27. At first I hardly knew what to do with myself! Should I eat the grass, roll on my back, gallop as fast as I could or lie down and rest? In the end I did everything and it was the best time I'd had in ages.
