MistySadly I heard no reply. I was so scared and hopeless, but at least I have my Midnight back. Finally, after a while Midnight slowed back to a walk and I dismounted quickly. I was fine and so was Midnight and his beautiful herd. Slowly we made it back to the stables where my mum greeted me with a warm hug. She talked and talked and talked, but I didn't listen, I was too busy helping Midnight and his herd settle down from the trauma.

Midnight and the young fillies settled quickly, but the lead mare was very jumpy and uneasy. Each time I attempted to calm her she galloped off, even though Midnight and the fillies were cuddling into me. She had no trust in me, she thought I was turning her herd against her. But at this time she was the least of my worries, dad would be home soon and I'm sure he would freak out if he found another mustang herd on his land.

Around 8PM heard dads truck coming into the yard. He looked very angry and quickly greeted me with screams of anger, but I wasn't paying attention. I was only thinking of him sending Midnight and his herd off to the rodeo or somewhere away from me.

"Leah, are you even listening." screaamed dad.

As quickly as he got angry he calmed to a much more manageable voice. He agreed that we should let Midnight and his herd rest after a long day. I quickly hayed up, mucked out and went inside for dinner. Thankfully dad had already eaten dinner at his friends ranch so the table was quiet. The only noise was Midnight and the herd whinning together. I enjoyed the quiet, it relaxed me. When I finished dinner I thanked mum and went to bed for an early night. I went to sleep quickly and strangely looked forward to tomorrow.

The next morning I ran to Midnight. He was standing there asleep. I quietly walked over to the stables to give the horses a little extra hay and to start my morning chores. Shortly after I heard Midnight whinny so I ran over to him. He came up to me and I tacked him up and was ready to go for a ride when the lead mare came over and nuzzled me.
"I will be back to ride you later girl" I said. Life couldn't be more perfect. I love my life on Mustang Mountain.
