The vacation was almost over. But there was one more adventure before the plane trip home—New Year’s Eve!
The little horse had never been allowed to stay up until Midnight before. The au pair said it made him too grumpy. But the au pair was not here to put him to bed. Lou and Pete said the little horse could come to the party.
All day the hotel bustled with activity. The little horse was filled with excitement. He hid behind the flowering bushes and watched as the patio, the garden filled up with tables, chairs, lights, lanterns, and streamers. The little horse dashed from one hiding place to another as he watched all the commotion.
In the afternoon he tried to nap by the pool, but he was too excited. He splashed on the edge of the infinity pool. He rested in the shade of the exotic grasses. He tried to sleep, but it was no use. He was too excited. He stayed close to Lou and Pete all day.
