" When I got closer to the fence, I held my shirt over my nose to block smell. A stallion twisted through the muck and whinnied angry with me. He carried his teeth, which pointed like a bear.
I tried to talk to him in my mind. I can do that with most horses.
Hi, I told him. I'll wash your stables. Would not it be good?
Yes! The horse said. Come in! Eat you! Tasty half-blood!
But I'm Poseidon's son, I protested. He created horses.
Usually, this gets me VIP treatment in the rider world, not this time.
Yes! The horse agreed enthusiastically. Poseidon can come in too! We want to eat you both! Seafood!
seafood! The other horses fought in as they used to go through the field. "
