Story Summary

John decides that the best way to get a girl friend is to hang out by the barn where all the cute girls ride. As a cruel joke, two of the girls put him on their horse, Susie, in the riding corral but Susie just keeps drifting back towards the barn, a phenomena the girls call barn gravity. But John is smitten, and by the end of the summer he does have a girl friend ... golden hair, kinda round, big nostrils, four hooves and a long tail.
