About a hundred years ago, there lived a protestant farmer in Drumboory named Kenny. He had a white horse called Bob, which he liked very much. He was his favourite. Shortly after Kenny's death, it was nothing unusual to see him riding on his horse at ten or eleven o'clock or sometimes sitting on the manger beside him, when the workmen used to go in to feed other horses.
