  4. Cause and Effect Roberto chased the wild horse because it had killed his father. The horse was very clever so the chase lasted several days. Roberto knew the while stallion was near since he could hear its hoof beats. The stallion was angry so it stamped the ground. Because Roberto’s pony was too slow, he lost sight of the wild horse. Roberto switched to a fresh horse in order to keep up with the stallion. As a result of the four-day chase, Roberto was exhausted. Theme 6: American Adventure “Name This American”
