A Groom used to spend whole days in currycombing and rubbing
down his Horse, but at the same time stole his oats and sold
them for his own profit. "Alas!" said the Horse, "if you really wish
me to be in good condition, you should groom me less, and feed
me more."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
