An interview with Althea

Althea, her adorable dog, Apple and her favorite chicken, Wobble.
"Today, I'm very happy to be spending time  chatting with my young friend, Althea, who is nine years old."
“Althea, I’m so excited that you are talking with me today. I know my readers will love learning more about you.”  Now we’ll get to our questions.”

How long have you been riding?

I have been riding for about 3 years.

Do you have a favorite pony? If you do, please tell us his/her name and why he (or she) is your favorite. You may describe him for us if you like.

My favorite horses are Rosie and Mi Jito. I like Rosie because she is very sweet and  gentle and listens to you. (She’s a school horse trained to listen but she’s still great.) I like Mi Jito because you really have to work with him a lot, and he’s got some trouble in him but he’s a very sweet horse and has a really great personality.

What else do you like doing for fun?

Some other things I do are ice skating, art, piano, fencing, skiing, and climbing.

Have you even ridden in a horse show? If you haven’t, would you like to? If you have, did you like it?

I have never been in a riding show, but I would like to!

What do you think you might like to do when you grow up?

A job I might want when I grow up is being a dog vet (only for dogs!), or an artist.

What are some of your favorite books?

A few of my favorite books are the Tintin series, the Narnia series, and Obsidian Mirror by Catherine Fisher.

Is there anything else you’d like to talk about?

In Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes I really like the character Hattie because she loves hats and is very silly.

Thank you for interviewing me!  

 "I loved getting to know more about you. By the way, your picture is lovely. I’m so pleased that you included your little dog, Apple and your favorite chicken named Wobble. You did an excellent job naming them. Hattie would be hopping around with joy if she knew you had such a cute chicken friend!”
