    A curtain man called in one day to a forge to a smith to put a set of new shoes on his horse, which he did

    A certain man called in one day to a forge to a smith to put a set of new shoes on his horse, which he did. The man asked him would he like to see a hunt, and the smith said he would, but that he had no horse. Come on with me, and I will get a horse for you, he brought him into the back of the forge where there was a lot of old ploughs and he turned the plough into a fine grey horse, bridle and saddle and said, Come on now, to the hunt. He collected the dogs and told him not to cross a certain river he had forgotten what the man told him and he crossed it, and he found he was sitting on an old plough fourteen miles from his home.
