Once upon a time, in a cosy corner of the countryside, there was a horse named Harry, known for his humorous antics. Harry loved to make his animal friends laugh with his silly impressions.
But the funniest thing about Harry was that he thought he was a kangaroo!
Yes, a kangaroo!
One bright morning, Harry decided it was time to show off his best kangaroo hop. He bent his knees, wiggled his tail, and sprung into the air with all his might.
“Look at me, I’m Harry the Kangahorse!” he shouted gleefully.
His friends, a group of ducks, sheep, and pigs, couldn’t stop laughing as Harry bounced around the paddock, kicking up tufts of grass with each bound.
“Harry, you’re the only horse who can hop like a kangaroo!” they chuckled.
Feeling inspired, Harry had a brilliant idea. “Let’s have a hopping contest!” he exclaimed.
The animals all lined up, ready to show off their bouncy moves.
The ducks flapped and fluttered, the sheep leapt like fluffy clouds, and the pigs mostly just rolled around giggling.
Harry was having the time of his life, but he wanted to make the day even more special.
So he hopped to the nearby orchard and, with a mighty kangaroo-style leap, plucked the juiciest apples from the trees with his mouth.
“Snack time!” he called out, and all the animals gathered to enjoy the fruits of Harry’s labour.
As the sun began to set, painting the sky in shades of orange and pink, Harry and his friends lay in the grass, tired from their hopping adventure but happy in their hearts.
They watched the stars appear, one by one, and Harry felt grateful for this perfect day, the joy of jumping, and the laughter of friends.
