The Horse and the Groom
Posted October 22, 2012on:
A rich man employed a groom for his horses. A groom is a person who brushes and cleans horses. That groom was not a good man. He was hard working but very selfish and cunning. He treated animals very ruthlessly.
He rubbed and brushed the horses mercilessly.
He often took away the horse’s grain and sold in the village without his master’s permission. The horse got less to eat. The horse got weaker and weaker. Thus he was unhappy with the groom.
One day the horse said to him; “If you really care for me then give me less of your brushing and more of your corn”
The groom laughing at the horse slyly took away the grain.
His master before now worried to see his horse getting weaker, but he didn’t know the reason.
He was watching all that from his attic. He saw the ill-treatment of the groom himself. So he came to know the reason of his horses’ problem. He came down and turned him out of his job.
Moral of the story ——-
What you sow, so shall you reap!
