Horses Seeing Fairies

by Bernadette Weyde

One day this winter we had no bread for tea at Orry’s Dale. On inquiring the reason the next time the baker’s cart came, the boy who drove it said that the horse saw fairies after dark, and so, as it was getting dusk, he had gone home instead of coming on with the bread.
