I wanted to have the same opportunities to experience what he did through 4-H. At the age of 6, in late 2004, I took part in my first 4-H project, the Protégé horse program in Washtenaw County where I was able to borrow my mentor’s horse for show. This group allowed me to expand as a person. The Protégé horse program teaches young clover buds to meet new friends, to learn more about showing horses, and to gain confidence. Before 4-H, I was an extremely shy child. I was the girl standing behind my mother avoiding conversation with others.
We entered in a class where the lead rope is loosely tied around the horse’s neck and led to a chair with a carrot on it. The handler picks up the carrot, drops the rope, and runs back through the start. The pony runs behind the handler and everyone is placed based on how fast each pair can complete the run. Just a month earlier, my trainer and barn owner had rescued Faith, and her stablemate from deplorable conditions. Their hooves were severely overgrown and Moonbeam, her elderly counterpart, was very emaciated.

Horse showing is a sport for these reasons: the riders’ passion, hard work, and dedication. What little girl doesn’t want a pony/horse for their 5th birthday? But not every little girl gets to experience having a best friend: but if you do you develope the love and passion to be with that animal. That animal becomes their best friend. From best friends to passionate to you become obsessed.
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father refused to let her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the old South. When she told the men to see colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.

Days after Joe’s death Janie continued to wear her hair down about the town symbolizing her freedom from her abusive and controlling husband. Furthermore, Janie had also gained freedom from her late grandmother, Nanny, whom had raised Janie and forced her into a marriage with Logan.

She’s rained herself out” (p.21). Unfortunately, however, it rained heavily and the pony eventually died because of that rain. Furthermore, after Carl, Jody’s father, promised to give a colt to Jody if he took a good care of Nellie, Jody was afraid of losing his colt again.
