Write an adjective from the list into each blank. Pick adjectives that make sense and make the paragraph more interesting. Use each adjective only once in the paragraph.

The sheriff walked into the stable. He put the saddle on the horse. He would ride to the ranch in the rain to see the lady. She might know where the cowboy had gone.

old -young -dark -bright -sad -glad -happy -pretty -mean -evil -dirty -clean -gentle -big -small -light -tired -black -brown -distant -soft -slow -fast -cold -warm -large -nice -rich -poor -strong -huge -best

The ______________ sheriff walked into the ______________ stable. He put the ______________ saddle on the ____________ horse. He would ride to the ___________ ranch in the ______________ rain to see the ______________ lady. She might know where the ______________ cowboy had gone.
