The Horse and the Wolf

by Aesop

With a kick, he sent him flying into the air.

A WOLF saw a Horse grazing in a field. Putting on a grave air, he approached him and said: Sir, you must be very ill; I have some skill as a physician, and if you will tell me what your ailment is, I shall be glad to be of service. Said the horse: If you will examine my foot, you will find what ails me. But as the wily wolf approached him, with a kick, he sent him flying into the air.
