I walked into the stables and headed straight for Red's stall I looked in and let a cry "Oh no! Red!" I unlatched the door and led Red out with lead line. I looked at him in the sunlight he'd been painted Black and mud and sand coated his coat. I fought back the urge to cry as I looked him I saw that his mane and tail was knotted and filled with twigs and leaves touched his coat to find that not only was it painted black but he was covered in oil as well.
I led him to the washing stalls and turned on the hose after I attached him to the cross ties. I started on his legs spraying him to try and get the dirt, oil and paint off of him. I heard someone gasp and "Oh my god! what happened to him?" I turned to see who'd spoken tears were streaming my face and my hands were covered in oil and black paint where i'd tried to wipe it off of him.
"Omigosh, Courtney! What happened to Red?" I gasped as I caught sight of Courtney in the wash stall. I felt relief that it wasn't Lou under the hose, and pity and confusion for Courtney - had someone done this on purpose??
I burst into a round tears and said, "Someone painted him black and covered him in oil and dirt! they left a note" I gestured a piece paper tied around Red's neck. It read. "Hey. Have fun! there's more to come" I wiped my eyes smearing mud and black paint on my face in the process I turned the hose up higher and started doing Red's belly. the ground around Red was a gross brownish black from the paint and mud coming off of him.
I was at Dream's stall, stroking his soft blaze when I heard voices at the end of the aisle. I looked over and saw Court and Laurel, so I walked over to say hi. I smile. "Hey Guys." Before i notice something's wrong. When I see Court's horse, Red, I gasp. "Omigod. What happened???"

I spotted Brooke and said, "Someone painted him black and covered him in old and mud and twigs and left me a lovely note" I showed her the note and said, "I bet you it's the same guys that dumped cherry juice all over me yesterday" I continued to hose Red down. I hoped he wouldn't be stained black or something once I got all the black off I grab some soap and start soaping him down.
"Those guys are totally dead! Let me help you" I filled a bucket with soapy water and grabbed a sponge, scrubbing at the clumps of mud on poor Red's oily coat. I couldn't BELIEVE how mean these people were being to Courtney, who had to be one of the sweetest, most polite people I'd ever met.
I smiled weakly and said, "Thanks for helping" I grabbed a mane comb and after spraying and sponging down his name I started to comb it pulling twigs, leaves and clumps of black paint from his mane I sprayed it again and started sponging down his face and ears. I looked up when she mentioned telling Mr. Conner I said, "What help would that be? I don't even know their names let alone what they look like before they were behind me when they dumped the cherry juice all over me and now they did it during the night"
"Hmm...that's true. But at best this is bullying, at worst it's probably some kind of felony to treat an animal like this! We have to stop them from doing anything else to Red or you..." Poor Courtney. This bullying was getting waaay out of hand.
I put my hand on my neck where I usually wore my favorite amethyst pendant necklace. I fumbled around for it worriedly then I remembered the incident this morning by the pool the guys had cornered me and threatened me before stealing my necklace. I looked up at them and said, "i'm used to bullying I was bullied at my old a lot too...I was put in a hospital once by a bully because they shoved me down two flights of stairs"
