Those horses didn't sleep one bit.
They frolicked on the loose.
They joined in games like Hide-n-Seek,
Leapfrog, and Duck, Duck, Goose.
"So this is why you snooze all day. I thougth I told you NO HORSEPLAY "
When his stubborn horses insist on playing games all night instead of sleeping, one determined farmer wears himself out trying to change their habits.
Told in clever rhyming verse throughout, Horseplay will engage parents and kids alike as they follow mischievous horses who just won't go to bed.
