When it was time to take the children to the toilet, it was decided that the girls would go with one teacher and the boys would go with the other.

His reply however was the same: “Good luck? Bad luck? Who can tell?”

Sometime later, while trying to tame one of the wild horses, the farmer’s only son fell off its back and broke his
