Sabre, the Horse from the Sea

Liza found the big grey stallion Sabre on the beach, and after she falls for him, lies to the policewhen they come to take him back. She races the horse, but he is recognised by his owner and taken back. Liza does still though have the hope of Cinder’s foal, after the mare was put to Sabre.
