More > where he had been to make some purchases for the hospital. That he might get home in good time and not be late, the doctor had lent him his very best horse.

Of course I didn’t know that when I first visited the farm where I met Bob the Protestant horse and Jim the Catholic horse, They could never work together in harmony. I don’t think any of the other animals on the farm had a stated religion, though I suppose the ducks might have been Baptists.< Less
