This lazy horse will do nothing but stand stillexcept on Sundays, when she sits down. She won't "giddy up" for the farmer, nor "trot off" for his wife, nor play cowboys for their son, nor jump for their daughter. There are no incentives that will work. Not carrots, oats, apples; not even a sugar lump! So she gets sold to a tinker, and then to the circusand then to a butcher. And then the dozy dobbin demonstrated that, though lazy, she wasn’t stupid: she ran like the wind!
