Ann and Friends - Roni

A pony story and questions for Beginning Braille Readers by Ann Gelles.

6. Roni

Roni is my pony.

He is gray.

He likes alfalfa hay, but he loves oats more.

Roni snacks on apples.

He also likes bologna.

We ride together every afternoon at two o'clock.

We ride on a horse trail.

Roni gallops across two fields.

I like that a lot.

Roni trots across a bridge.

He walks up a big hill.

Next we wade across a little brook.

We always walk home so Roni won't get too hot.

I always curry Roni after a good ride.

Roni likes that a lot.

A good ride always makes me feel happy.

Roni is happy after a good ride too.
