Jody acquires a pony, from his father, as a gift but also as a symbol of a personal test for Jody to see if he is ready for all the responsibilities as a man. The pony is a good way to teach Jody responsibility, because of all the maintenance and attention that is needed to keep an animal. In the story, the pony Gabilan becomes Jody’s top priority, as he comes home every day to feed, brush, and even train Gabilan. But one day Gabilan catches a cold, and becomes very ill. So it is up to Jody and Bill Buck to try and help the helpless animal.
Book 2 Ch. 1 The chapter begins with Father Joseph Vaillant returning from a visit to Albuquerque. He contemplates the people of Santo Domingo, who will come to hear but will not allow their children to be baptized. The Spanish have mistreated them long ago, and they do not forget. Father Joseph rides a wind-broken horse, sold to him by a Yankee trader, which he believes is evidence of his own mistreatment.
Now this is the side of the story that I see, and the theme for this said would be the importance of family. This could be the theme for this subject because in the poem the boy seems to truly enjoy the horse play with his father, as it says in the poem “Then waltzed me off to bed / Still clinging to your shirt” (15-16), which shows he wants to keep playing and not go to bed. The other theme/subject is a little darker, where it seems that a drunken father comes home late one night to beat on his son. The theme for this subject is simple, “Abuse”, as this shows a young boy being beat. An example of this in the poem is when it says, “The hand that held my wrist / Was battered on one knuckle” (9-10), which shows the boy is being beat.
All three poems manage to display how as children they were exploring the natural world around them, Heaney exploring the "Frogspawn" and both Sheers and Heaney picking "blackberries" which are seen as childhood experiences. This exploration seemed to lead to them all finding something "dark" inside them as they begin to mature. In "DoaN" Heaney uses war like imagery such as "cocked" and "mud grenades", this may allude to the civil war in Ireland at the time as Heaney begins to see the world isn't as simple as "Miss Walls" would tell him. He is beginning to see that procreation does not happen because a partner "croaked" and in "BP" we see further how his innocence is being lost and he is learning about sexuality in the nouns "lust" and "hunger. They manage to illustrate how Heaney is developing a desire for sex which conflicts with his original childish adventures and shows the developing confusion he went through as he grew older.

There have been many test run on horses to show that when the horse was taught a certain task and was rewarded the horse continually did the task graciously. However, when the horse did not receive it’s reward, usually carrots or sugar cubes, the horse would not act so kindly. Becoming confused with the denial the horse would then begin performing the task in frustration until it was rewarded again. The game of golf is the same idea. Hansen paints this immaculate picture of the game of golf.
Hans’ father interpreted this as related to his own black moustache. The end of Hans’ phobia of horses was accompanied by 2 significant fantasies, which he told his father.

I can point out several books that immediately influence my life upon reading them but the most consequential would have to be a child hood favorite… Black Beauty. Black Beauty portrays the story of a horse’s life through none other but the horse himself. Written by Anna Swells, she depicts a tail beginning with a fortunate horse who lives his carefree days as a colt on an English farm with his mother to the hardship and austerity he faces while a cart horse in London to his tranquil and gratified retirement in the country. Upon reading this compelling and dynamic novel I came to the realization that Black Beauty's life contains a lessons and morals typically related to the kindness, sympathy, and understanding treatment of horses. There is such a great deal of Verisimilitude or resemblance of truth and reality contained with in the novel which makes for the
