Aesop's Fables

The Horse And The Ass

The Horse And The AssA Horse, proud of his fine harness, met an Ass on the high-road. As the Ass with his heavy burden moved slowly out of the way to let him pass, the Horse cried out impatiently that he could hardly resist kicking him to make him move faster.
      
      The Ass held his peace, but did not forget the other's insolence.
      
      Not long afterwards the Horse became broken-winded, and was sold by his owner to a farmer.
      
      One day, as he was drawing a dung-cart, he met the Ass again, who in turn derided him and said, "Aha! you never thought to come to this, did you, you who were so proud! Where are all your gay trappings now?"
