Mahdi smiled and winked, "Watch this." He took off his cloak with a flourish and lay it carefully over Snowflake. Then he spoke calming works from an unknown language. In a matter of moments, the frightened creature's breathing became calm, and she settled, as if resting. A minute later she blinked her eyes, once. Then again.

Suddenly, in one fluid movement, she rose to her feet and stomped the turf on the floor of the barn, whinnying joyfully. Jana clapped her hands. "Oh, Daddy, Snowflake's better! She turned to Mahdi, "Thank you so much." She gave him a tight hug.
