Hey guys,

What does "dropped" mean:


"It hooks on my back and pulls through the hay.

You would get hurt from how much it weighs."

Pony was sad so she drooped through the pasture


Could you explain it/transform it?


You wrote "dropped" in one place and "drooped" in another. Which is it? I imagine "drooped" is probably correct, but perhaps you could confirm.


If this is a story in which horses speak like people, then this means Pony says:

"This thing hooks onto my back and I pull it through the hay. If you - a human - tried it, you'd get hurt by the weight of the hay being pulled."

After saying this, Pony, saddened from considering her hard daily toil, moped ("drooped" - not "dropped") through the pasture.

Yes, I meant drooped.

So do you mean he drooped = he thought about the unpleasant experience he had had.

PS. Am I right?


Yes, I meant drooped.

"Pony drooped through the pastures" suggests a lethargic and slumped progress, e.g. with head hung down, typical of someone who is miserable.

Okay, so "he drooped" means "he thought about the unpleasant experience he had had." ? Am I right?

Or just "Pony was having his head low and shoulders forward typical of someone who is miserable."
