Brer Rabbit Gets Brer Fox a Hoss
One day Brer Rabbit see a great big horse laying stretch out flat on he side in the pasture; and he took and crept up, he did, for to see if this here horse done gone and die. He crept up and he crept 'round, and by and by he see the horse switch he tail, and then Brer Rabbit know he ain't dead.
Brer Fox weren't exactly killed, but he was the next door to it. He was all broke up, and whiles he was getting well, it sort of come across he mind that Brer Rabbit done play another game on him.
