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."
