The Ass and the Horse

AN ASS besought a Horse to spare him a small portion of his feed. "Yes," said the Horse; "if any remains out of what I am now eating I will give it to you for the sake of my own superior dignity, and if you will come when I reach my own stall in the evening, I will give you a little sack full of barley."

The Ass replied, "Thank you. But I can't think that you, who refuse me a little now, will by and by confer on me a greater benefit. Now stand down, lest you find my hoofs in your face!"
