happily.When he came to a river，the mill was on the other side of the

got confused。 Then he saw an old cow eating grass on the bank， 。 So
he asked him ： “ Uncle cow， is the water deep ？ And can I walk across
it ？ ” “ Not at all ！ ” the cow said。 “It’s just as high as my lower
legs， you can go across it。 It’s safe。 ” Then the little horse was
ready to go across the water。 Just then， a squirrel in the tree
shouted to him ： “Little horse， don’t go in the water。 It’s too
deep。 You’ll get drawned， and one of my friends got drawned in it a
few days ago。 ”
