The Barn Feels Warm

After the chilly outside air, the barn feels warm.  It smells like hay and animals.  The horses whinny.  They know it’s time for their breakfast. 

The horses are named Doll and Prince and Fancy.  Doll and Prince are workhorses.  Fancy is a riding horse.  The horses are all big strong animals.  They have long faces and large dark eyes.  They point their ears at Henry, and he knows they are listening to him as he talks to them softly.  “Hello horses,” says Henry.  “Are you hungry?”.  The horses don’t speak in words, but they seem to like the sound of Henry’s voice.
