An extract from The Magician's Horse:
One day while the magician was out the prince was working in the stables, grooming the magician's horse, when to his great surprise it spoke to him "Come into my stall," it said. "Fetch my bridle and saddle and put them on me. Then take the bottle that is beside them - it contains an ointment that will make your hair shine like pure gold. Then pile all the wood you can gather together onto the stove."
