The Gray Horse

Once upon a time there lived a stonehearted and stingy farmer. As a greedy man without conscience he tried to increase his belongings with regularly thefts. One night he went out around midnight and found a georgous gray horse tied up near a church.

He took the horse and rode it home. It galloped up the alley as if it knew where the farmer lived. But suddenly it stopped and the farmer was shocked to see the horse turn into the devil himself. He laughed at him, grabbed the farmer and broke his neck.

From this day on a lot of people didn't find their sleep anymore in the night because they heard the neighing and the gallop of the ghost horse, the restless soul of the damned farmer. He wasn't freed until the residents put up a cross in that alley.

This is my entry for the Thinking in or out of the box Contest
