    NEPTUNES NEW HORSE

    SLOWCOACH SWAM AROUND THE SECRET POOL HE WAS MISSING HIS LITTLE FRIEND TAYNE

    WHO HAD NOT BEEN DOWN TO VISIT HIM AT THE POOL FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

    I WONDER WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO HIM, I HOPE HE IS ALRIGHT HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF.

    JUST AS THESE THOUGHTS WERE GOING THROUGH HIS MIND TWO SHADOWS APPEARED ON THE

    SURFACE, LOOKING DOWN INTO THE WATER THERE WAS TAYNE AND HIS GRANDPA.

    “THERE HE IS!” TAYNE CALLED. “I TOLD YOU HE WOULD STILL BE HERE” REPLIED GRANDPA.

    THEY WATCHED ALL THE LITTLE CREATURES PLAYING IN THE POOL UNTIL THE TIDE STARTED TO

    COME IN, THEY QUICKLY MADE THEIR WAY TO THE SHORE BEFORE THEY WERE CUT OFF BY

    THE WATER SURROUNDING THEM.

    “I WILL SEE YOU LATER” TAYNE CALLED TO SLOWCOACH WHO GAVE A FLICK OF HIS TAIL AND A NOD OF

    HIS HEAD IN REPLY, BEFORE MAKING HIS WAY INTO THE SEAWEED AND SAFETY.

    LATER THAT NIGHT TAYNE WENT TO BED AND WAS SOON SOUND ASLEEP, ONCE AGAIN HE

    ENTERED THE POOL WHERE SLOWCOACH WAS WAITING FOR HIM.

    “IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I LAST SAW YOU, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?” ASKED HIS FRIEND.

    HE THEN EXPLAINED THAT HIS GRANDPA SAID HE COULD NOT VISIT THE POOL IN WINTER BECAUSE

    OF THE GALES AND ROUGH SEAS, SO HE HAD TO WAIT UNTIL SUMMER WHEN IT WAS FINE

    AND SUNNY.

    SLOWCOACH LISTENED INTENTLY TO WHAT HE HAD TO SAY AND AGREED WITH THE ADVICE THAT

    HAD BEEN GIVEN BY HIS GRANDPA.

    “FOLLOW ME, I HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW YOU AND SOME NEW FRIENDS FOR YOU TO MEET”

    TAYNE WAS DELIGHTED TO HEAR THIS AS HE REALLY LIKED TO MEET NEW FRIENDS AND DISCOVER

    MORE SECRETS OF THE POOL. HE COULD NOT HELP BUT NOTICE THAT THE SEAHORSE HAD

    GROWN MUCH BIGGER SINCE HE HAD LAST SEEN HIM, REMARKING ON THIS SLOWCOACH

    REPLIED “YES I WILL SOON BE BIG ENOUGH TO CARRY KING NEPTUNE ON MY BACK IF HE

    WILL HAVE ME, HIS OLD HORSE IS NOT AS FIT AS HE USED TO BE, BUT I WILL JUST HAVE TO

    WAIT AND SEE WHAT HIS DECISION IS.”

    “DOES THAT MEAN THAT I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE YOU AGAIN” ASKED A WORRIED LITTLE BOY.

    “NO!, IT WILL BE EVEN BETTER AS KING NEPTUNE WILL BE ABLE TO SHOW AND EXPLAIN ALL THE

    WONDERS OF THE DEEP TO YOU MUCH BETTER THAN I COULD.” ANSWERED SLOWCOACH.

    TAYNE WAS VERY RELIEVED TO HEAR THIS AS HE WOULD MISS NOT BEING ABLE TO VISIT THE POOL

    AND MEETING ALL HIS NEW FRIENDS.

    “ CAN WE GO AND VISIT LARRY” HE ASKED SLOWCOACH.

    “I’M AFRAID WE CAN’T HE WENT OUT INTO THE DEEP WATER FOR THE WINTER IN CASE HE GOT HURT BY

    THE WAVES BREAKING ON THE ROCKS AND TO SEARCH FOR SOME FOOD, BUT HE WILL BE BACK

    SOON, THEN WE CAN GO AND VISIT HIM WHEN HE RETURNS.” SAID SLOWCOACH,

    AS THEY MADE THEIR WAY ACROSS THE BOTTOM.TAYNE NOTICED SOMETHING LYING ON THE SAND.

    IT WAS A SHELL, ROUND IN SHAPE WITH RIDGES ON THE BACK. “WHAT IS THAT?”, HE ASKED

    AS HE TOUCHED IT WITH HIS HAND. SUDDENLY IT FLEW OFF THE BOTTOM, THEN SETTLED

    DOWN ON THE SAND AGAIN.

    “LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO SUSIE THE SCALLOP” SAID SLOWCOACH. “SHE VISITS US ABOUT ONCE A

    YEAR DURING THE WINTER GALES.” SUSIE OPENED UP HER SHELLS LOOKING DOUBTFULLY AT THE

    LITTLE BOY WHO WAS STILL TRYING TO GET OVER THE SHOCK OF HER SUDDEN FLIGHT. “I’M SORRY IF I

    FRIGHTENED YOU” HE SAID TO HER, I DID NOT MEAN TO.” SLOWCOACH EXPLAINED TO HER ABOUT

    TAYNE AND AFTER THAT THEY BECAME FRIENDS TO A MUCH RELIEVED BOY.

    AFTER LEAVING SUSIE, THEY NOTICED A WEAVING LINE IN THE SAND ON THE BOTTOM. “I

    SEE HORATIO IS ON THE MOVE AGAIN” REMARKED SLOWCOACH, “WE MAY SEE HIM LATER.”

    SUDDENLY OUT OF A TINY HOLE IN THE SAND A TINY HEAD APPEARED, “HELLO TAYNE” SAID

    A SQUEEKY VOICE, HE IMMEDIATELY RECOGNISED SAMMY, “IT’S A LONG TIME SINCE WE

    HAVE HAD A VISIT FROM YOU” SAID SAMMY HIS HEAD BOBBING UP AND DOWN IN THE HOLE,

    ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR DANGER. TAYNE WAS ALWAYS AMUSED TO SEE HIM DO

    THIS AND HE WAS ONE OF HIS FAVOURITES IN THE POOL. “HELLO SAMMY” HE CRIED AND

    TOLD HIM WHY IT HAD BEEN SO LONG SINCE HE HAD BEEN TO THE POOL. “YOUR GRANDPA

    IS QUITE RIGHT, IT IS FAR TOO COLD AND DANGEROUS IN THE WINTER TO COME HERE” SAID

    SAMMY, AT THE SAME TIME DIGGING A NEW HOLE WITH HIS TAIL. WITH A QUICK GOODBYE

    HE DISAPPEARED DOWN INTO HIS NEW HOME TAIL FIRST THEN BEGAN COVERING IT UP

    WITH SAND SO THAT ONLY A TINY PAIR OF EYES WERE VISIBLE. “GOODBYE SAMMY, I WILL

    SEE YOU THE NEXT TIME I COME TO THE POOL”. WITH A WAVE, THE TWO FRIENDS SWAM

    INTO THE WEEDS TO THE PALACE OF KING NEPTUNE.

    THE KING WAS SITTING ON HIS THRONE OF SHELLS AND ON SEEING THEM, BECKONED THEM

    TO COME IN. AS HE STROKED HIS LONG WHITE BEARD HE SAID TO TAYNE “HAS SLOWCOACH

    TOLD YOU THAT SOON HE WILL BE MY NEW HORSE”. “YES” HE REPLIED FEELING REALLY

    HAPPY FOR HIS FRIEND THAT THIS HONOUR SHOULD BE GIVEN TO HIM AS THIS WAS THE

    GREATEST AWARD THAT A SEAHORSE COULD BE GIVEN.”I AM GLAD YOU ARE PLEASED FOR

    HIM, HE HAS GROWN UP AND WORKED VERY HARD SO IT IS TIME FOR HIM TO BE

    REWARDED” SAID THE KING. TURNING TO SLOWCOACH HE PRESENTED HIM WITH A BRIDLE

    AND REINS MADE FROM THE FINEST SEAWEED THAT COULD BE FOUND. SLOWCOACH WAS

    DELIGHTED AND THANKED THE KING FOR HIS KINDNESS AND HE VOWED HE WOULD SERVE

    THE KING TO THE BEST OF HIS ABILITY.” I’M SURE YOU WILL, AND THIS WILL MAKE NO

    DIFFIRENCE TO YOU WHEN YOU COME TO VISIT US AT THE POOL TAYNE. INFACT I WILL HAVE

    MORE TIME TO SPEND WITH YOU AND EXPLAIN ALL THE WONDERS OF THE DEEP TO YOU

    AND SLOWCOACH.” WITH THAT THE KING DISMISSED THEM TO GO AND EXPLAIN TO HIS OLD

    HORSE THAT HE COULD NOW RETIRE AND HAVE A WELL EARNED REST.AFTER LEAVING THE

    PALACE SLOWCOACH TOLD TAYNE HE MUST GO AND SHOW HIS MUMMY AND DADDY THE

    NEW BRIDLE AND REINS THE KING HAD PRESENTED TO HIM. THEY WILL BE REALLY PROUD

    OF ME. “I AM SURE THEY WILL AND I AM PROUD OF YOU TOO. I WILL TELL MY GRANDPA ALL

    ABOUT IT WHEN I SEE HIM” SAID TAYNE.

    TAYNE AWOKE IN THE MORNING AND GOT DRESSED QUICKLY. LATER ON THAT DAY HE

    WENT TO VISIT HIS GRANDPA AND TOLD HIM ALL ABOUT HIS LATEST ADVENTURE. WHEN

    GRANDPA HEARD ABOUT SLOWCOACH BEING KING NEPTUNES NEW HORSE A SAD LOOK

    CAME INTO HIS EYES. MY OLD FRIEND MUST BE GETTING TIRED NOW AND DESERVES A

    REST HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF. HE REMEMBERED WHEN HIS FRIEND HAD BEEN GIVEN A

    NEW SET OF REINS AND BRIDLE FROM THE KING LONG AGO WHEN HE HAD BEEN A LITTLE

    BOY VISITING THE SECRET POOL. HE GAVE A SMILE AND TURNING TO TAYNE SAID “I AM

    SURE MY OLD FRIEND WILL BE PROUD THAT HIS SON HAS TAKEN OVER THE REINS FROM

    HIM”. TAYNE WAS TAKEN ABACK AS HE HAD NEVER KNOWN THAT NEPTUNES OLD HORSE

    HAD BEEN SLOWCOACH’S DADDY.
