Latawnya, the Naughty Horse

by

What a children’s classic, complete with illustrations of horses drinking and smoking. The plot summary of this 29 page work of excellence follows [spoiler alert]:

Latawnya the Naughty Horse comes from a large family, and she and her sisters Daisy and Latoya go out to play where they meet up with some horses that are smoking drugs and drinking alcohol, so Latawnya the Naughty Horse joins them and gets sick. Her sister horses rat her out to her parents. Her father, James, tells her about one of his horse friends who died from an overdose, Latawnya the Naughty Horse says that drugs and and alcohol are bad, and her parent horses kiss and hug her. The End.

There are many questions left unresolved in this pressure cooker, like where do horses get drugs and alcohol and how do they pay for it?  Who in their right mind gives horses lighters and matches? How do horses hug?  Why did  Latawnya, the Naughty Horse, have to try out smoking and drinking first before she came to her own conclusions? Guess we’ll have to wait for the sequel.

    There’s nothing worse than riding a drunk horse. I’m glad Latawnya learned her lesson. This book will probably win a Pushcart prize. 🙂

    Truly bizarre. Good find! I think? It’s kinda creepy. In a bad way.

    As to where they get it, that’s easy: horses sneak alcohol out of their trainer’s car trunks when the trainer is swearing in the tack room and complaining about what a bad horse they just rode.
    Drugs are a little harder, since horse Vets have eagle eyes, but faking a good colic might get you some Banamine or Ace.
    Smoking: Here, the book just lies. No opposable thumb = no way to light up.

    A kid’s book??? Really??

    Aiiieeeeeeeee

    Leeuna– If Latanya kept up with that stuff, she’d be glue right now. Good thing she got busted in time.

    thelit– I knew that you’d come up with some first hand info on this terrible trend. Horses on drugs & booze = not good.

    nursem– Horses can be real jerks, especially when you’re not paying attention.

    No, the bigger question is how did they manage to light the matches with their hoofs.. ?? I learnt something about horses today that I never thought I would.. Thanks Bunk!

  8. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Heart– First they have to take off their shoes, and that’s an amazing feat for a horse just by itself. We’re all about learnt here.
