We come out one morning to find Ivory, one of the equines of Ishtar’s Ark without her halter.
IVORY: Esther, I feel naked without my halter. Can you help me?
ESTHER [to herself]: Now I wonder who could be the guilty one…?
ESTHER: OK, Ivory! Let’s try pink on you! Let’s spice up this horse yard and make you the prettiest equine of Zinder!
ESTHER: Ah, look at that! You look stunning!
IVORY [hesitant]: Are you sure pink is my colour?
ESTHER: Oh yes, positive! It does perfectly with your pink nose!
KALAHARI [jealous]: I think she looks ridiculous in that!
KALAHARI: Here, Ivy, let me help you get that off!
[Isolde comes to check]
ISOLDE: Well, the colour may be ridiculous and very princess-like, which is MY role and not yours, but that said, the quality seems to be very nice. Comfortable.
EBONY [to the audience]: Now what IS this ridiculousness? Ivory gets her friends to destroy her halter and she gets a brand new one?? I should have gotten a new one first! After all, Ivory’s halter had only been worn by one horse before but mine has actually been worn by TWO horses. And Anette said the pink halter was supposed to MINE! This is so not fair.
A few days later, Ebony ripped Ivory’s new halter in pieces. Ivory answered by destroying Ebony’s. Both halters have now been repaired, with Ivory’s looking brand new again. Ebony will get a new one after the rainy season, when Anette is back from Sweden.
