THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE RICH POOR HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 25 June 1914
THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE RICH POOR HORSE. The poor rich horse, driven by a tall coachman with high hat and white gloves, looked very gay as he pranc ed from the door of an elegant establishment on the avenue. The breast of the noble creature was covered with foam, and lie tossed his head.up and dlown, and back and forth, and pawed the air with his fore feet. So high were his eyes-almost look ing toward the sky-that lie scarcely seemed able to see a fat old dray horse that stood near, regarding him with a sort of sleepy wonder, and con sidering him as belonging to another "set" than his entirely. The old horse did not suppose It would be any good to pass the time ot day with his neolgh bor. as the rich horse undoubtedly re garded himself as far too grand to communicate with such a humble per sonage; so lhe changed the blit around in hls mouth, and was Just about to drolp Into a gentle doze, when a sound of distress front the rich horso caused his plain neighbor to open his eyes wi...
