The King's Horse: A Purim Story
I am the king's horse. I live in the biggest stall in the Persian royal stables.
King Achashverosh never comes to visit me. He is a busy man, always planning parties, and wars, and then more parties.
But tonight, something strange is going on. Haman is in the courtyard, waking me up with his racket.
I don't know what he's up to, but something tells me I'm not going to like it...
