At one time the Horse had the plain entirely to himself. Then a
Stag intruded into his domain and shared his pasture. The
Horse, desiring to revenge himself on the stranger, asked a
man if he were willing to help him in punishing the Stag. The
man replied that if the Horse would receive a bit in his mouth
and agree to carry him, he would contrive effective weapons
against the Stag. The Horse consented and allowed the man
to mount him. From that hour he found that instead of obtaining
revenge on the Stag, he had enslaved himself to the service of
man.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
