My mother was a wise old horse with kind manners. We had a good, kind master. He gave us good food and spoke to us with kind words. My mother loved him very much and when she saw him at the gate she neighed with joy and ran towards him. He called me ‘Darkie’ because I was pitch-black with a white star on my forehead. I felt very happy when he gave me a piece of bread. Sometimes he brought a carrot for my mother. He had other horses but my mother and I were his favourite horses.

Visitors come and go, and the day slowly turns to evening. It is a special evening for them because they are going to find love in the end.
