Once there were two horses. One was called Blacky and the other Whitey.
Their master never used to give them enough food.
One day both of them went to a nearby farm and started eating the green grass there.
Suddenly Whitey started singing loudly. Blacky asked why he was singing. Whitey said, ”This is the first time I am eating so much and so am very happy”.
Then he started singing louder and louder.
Blacky ran and hid behind some big bushes.
The farmer came running with a huge stick. When he saw the horse, he started hitting the horse continuously and so the horse died.
Blacky had to go back without his friend.
Moral: Pride goes for a fall.
