Flying horses

I remember my grandma
Telling me a story that happened
To her in 1924 my grandma and her sister
Had two horses named Goldy and Star
The two sister's was racing the two horses
On an old dirt road
The girls saw a train coming
And it was coming down a track
My grandma sister told my grandma
Mae there is a train
And my grandma said the horses won't stop
And the horses was heading toward the train
The girls tried everything they could
To stop the horses and tried to turn them
But, the horses wouldn't come
Not for nothing
The next thing
My grandma remembered
She was flying over the train
She looked over to her sister that was next to her side
And she flying to
What happened was the two horses jumped over the train
My grandma said her and her sister was hanging on for dare life
The horses made it to the other side
My grandma and her sister were ok
When they got back home
They told there dad what happened
There family couldn't believe it
They said it couldn't ever happened
They laughed at the girls because they thought
They both lied
God only know's why horses could only fly.
