Example text

They did not give me a chance to know what they wanted. I was high-bred and had a great deal of spirit, and was very wild, no doubt, and gave them, I dare say, plenty of trouble, but then it was dreadful to be shut up in a stall day after day instead of having my liberty, and I fretted and pined and wanted to get loose. You know yourself its bad enough when you have a kind master and plenty of coaxing, but there was nothing of that sort for me. "There was one舒the old master, Mr. Ryder舒who, I think could soon have brought me round, and could have done anything with me ; but he had given up all the hard part of the trade to his son and to another experienced man, and he only came at times to oversee.

They rode me by turns, and I galloped them about, up and down the fields and all about the orchard, for a good hour.

Boys, you see, think a horse or pony is like a steam engine or a thrashing machine, and can go as long and as fast as they please ; they never think that a pony can get tired, or have any feelings ; so as the one who was whipping me could not understand, I just rose up on my hind legs and let him slip off behind舒that was all; he mounted me again and I did the same.

Why, only the other day I heard our master say to Mrs. Blomefield, 9 My dear madam, you need not be anxious about the children, my old Merry- legs will take as much care of them as you or I could ; I assure you I would not sell that pony for any money, he is so perfectly good-tempered and trustworthy;9 and do you think I am such an ungrateful brute as to forget all the kind treatment I have had here for five years, and all the trust they place in me, and turn vicious, because a couple of ignorant boys used me badly ?
