Henry ran completely through the shop and out an open door on the garage end. Luckily, the ox was slowed somewhat by its new iron shoes which didnt provide much traction on the hard concrete floor.

One ear was badly torn and his white fur was caked with dried blood. Thank God youre back. We had given you up for dead, Frank told him. The rest of the milking would have to wait.

Moreover, why didnt Henry, who knew just about everything about the town, know what was inside? Or, was it a secret and he wasnt telling?
