Some said that Archibald had neglected all his other animals, but no one opposed it as he led the horses away. The white horse was used for the grain wheel, but the foal was used at the plow. Archibald worked the horse every day until it dropped, only feeding it a little bit. Over time the foal became unpredictable and moody. Bucking at random and breaking several of old Archibald's bones. Fed up with the horse, Archibald resorted to a whip. But after one week of it, Archibald found one morning that the stall was empty.
