There was a time a very long time ago when the world was new and the moon and the stars were much brighter than they are today In those days the Earth was a playground for the gods They came down from their lofty heights and used the Earth for fun and frolic The gods did what ever they liked and went where ever they liked untroubled by human beings One of the things the gods loved to do was ride horses They especially liked white horses No other color horse would do It was white horses that pulled the chariots and white horses that raced along the beach and white horses that were pampered and fed by the gods Naturally the white horses came to think that they were better than the other horses and lorded it over them Poor brown horses they would say So unfortunate to be born a dark color Still maybe youll be good for somethingsomeday
