Example text

But it was not so ; in the evening poor Skye brought them back again, one by one in her mouth ; not the happy little things they were, but bleeding and crying pitifully; they had all had a piece of their tails cut off, and the soft flap of their pretty little ears was cut quite off.

I felt my whole spirit set against him, and I began to kick and plunge, and rear as I had never done before, and we had a regular fight; for a long time he stuck to the saddle and punished me crnelly with his whip and spurs, but my blood was thoroughly up, and I cared for nothing he could do if only I could get him off.
