The shadow of a horse – Aesop’s Fables

A farmer had a horse. He earned money by hiring the horse.

It was summer. A traveller hired the horse to go a long distance. The farmer went with the man.

During the midday, the man sat under the shadow of the horse. The farmer told, “Oh, what are you doing? Please get out of the place. I shall sit over there.”

The traveller said, “What are you telling? I have rented the horse for whole day. Now it is only midday.” The owner of the horse told, “I have given you the horse only, you can not rent the shadow.”

They started quarreling. Looking at them, the horse went away.
