    Horses are more intelligent that many people think. They can be mischievous too: one I used to know liked to stand on my foot, slowly, applying more and more pressure until I squirmed. I think he didn’t want to hurt me: at least I hope he didn’t.

    Hats were a passion of Archie’s. He had cowboy hats, fedoras, sombreros, anything you could name in almost any colour imaginable. Hats with feathers, with jewels, made of felt, made of straw.

    No-one knew what he looked like under all of them, though.

    The board was skewed crazily on the table’s edge. My brother rolled a die and moved his piece, setting it down gently on one of my houses only to have it slide three spaces onto a chance space.

    I glared at him. This was not in any sense fair.
