The hooves hit the dirt, clouds of dust blossomed.
The little boy in overalls, with the red balloon watched, sucking on his lollipop.
The horse kicked and bucked again, clouds rose higher. The little boy squinted as the dust made its way over to him.
The horse came at him quick and the little boy let go of his balloon, took off, dropping his lollipop. Suddenly the horse stopped, his hoof on the lollipop.
The horse lower his head, sniffed, then began licking the lollipop. The little boy safe inside his home, looked out the window, seeing his red balloon drift further away.
The boy looked up at the red balloon then back at the horse licking his lollipop, wondering what he missed more.
