they asked him where he was, he said that he had been getting a nice ride on a horse.
They told an old woman about it. She told them to buy a pair of spurs for him. They bought them for him and put them on his boots. He was not kept out so long that night. So the next night the father went after him, and he could hear a voice saying "Have you the sharp things on you this night." The little boy said that he had, and they never brought him any more.
