Three whole counts of the hooves

Twelve silver pennies!

Three whole counts of the hooves!

That’s a lot of pennies, and silver ones too. Surely I‘m only worth one count of the hooves at most, the state I’m in right now.

Working for old sour-face is enough to wear anyone’s spirit down, and of course he’s far too mean to feed me properly.

Well, now I’ve got another chance. If these folk are prepared to pay twelve silver pennies for a nag such as me, I’m prepared to do my best for them.

Especially when that little fat chap has a pocket full of juicy apples.
