The next morning Julie was too excited to eat. She and her mom headed straight for the auction. Julie soon realized that she did not have enough money. She kept raising her hand to make a bid, but every time the price climbed too high. Julie's eyes filled with tears as one pony after another was sold. Even the black-and-white filly. "Don't give up," said a woman sitting next to her. Keep calling out your bid. Persistence pays off!" and she handed Julie a twenty-dollar bill.
"Thank you, but we really can't-" Julie's mother began, but then a little boy gave Julie a dollar. "It looks like everyone wants you to have a pony of your own," her mother said, smiling. "Thank you !" Julie exclaimed as more strangers passed her money. Her heart leaped. Now she might have enough to buy her pony! But it was too late. All the ponies had been sold.
As the last ponies were being taken out of the auction arena, a man shouted, "Wait! A pony has been returned. The barn where she was going won't take a foal." "Don't leave, folks," the auctioneer said. "We have one more pony to sell."
It was the black-and-white pony, Painted Dream! The auctioneer looked straight at Julie. her heart pounded and her hand shot in the air. "Going once, going twice sold to the little girl int he first row!"
"Well," said her mother, "what are you going to do now that you have your dream?" "I have a lot of work to do," said Julie. "First I have to gentle my pony. Then I am going to do chores, save all my money, and come back next year." "Isn't One pony enough?" her mother asked, laughing. "No," said Julie. "I am going to give my money to another girl so that she can buy a pony of her own."
And that is just what she did.
