I whipped around and battled the beast with my front hooves, neighing and whinnying a fierce battle cry! Then, I delivered a fatal blow to the monster. What’s that? Oh, no, it was quite nothing, really. I merely saw what needed to be done and did it! Reward? What? Heroism? Oh, no I assure you, that won’t be necessary…
