The Horse and the Stag


A horse had the whole range of a meadow for his own grazing but a stag coming and damaging the pasture the horse sought to have revenge and asked a man if he could not help him to discipline the stag. "Yes," said the man, "only let me put a bit in your mouth and get upon your back and I will find the weapons." The horse agreed and the man mounted but instead of getting his revenge the horse has been from that time the slave of man.
