I found McAliister L.'s article "The Gift Horse" surprisingly and extremly moving. It's proof that you can't always judge a book by its cover and taking chances with situations in life may prove to be the better choice in the end. When McAliister said," I need a jumping horse. This one is barely worthy of a glue factory," it seemed that McAllister had judged the book by its cover and wasn't going to take a chancwe with it. It really surprised me when McAllister had ended the article saying," I left the stables with three broken bones and a new horse. I only regretted three of the four," showing McAllister had taken a chance and in the end McAllister was happy with the choice.It's really moving to know McAllister ended up loving "The Gift Horse". Thank you McAllister for writing such a teriffic article.
