The Very Ugly Horse

A fable by Dylan Brewster

The Very Ugly Horse

Once upon a time there was a very ugly horse named Carrot JaCrispy. Everybody made fun of Carrot because he was very ugly. As Carrot grew up, the teasing got worse. "You look like a potato, Carrot," one would say. "Hey Carrot, Shrek called, he wants his face back!" said another. Then one day there was a freak accident in which Carrot JaCrispy died. Every Horse was so happy. "Yes! Carrot died!" said one. "He was so ugly!" said another. But on the third day Carrot rose again from death and used his new powers to drain all the pretty from the mean horses so he became  pretty. Then disease spread and everyone got sick and eventually died.

The theme is what comes around goes around.
