He didn't need a saddle. There were sleek lines. The purest of colours made his coat. He was bred to be perfect. No horse was finer.

But.

He wasn't a pig.

“Master?”

YES, ALBERT?

“What should I cook for Hogswatch?”

NO PORK.

Albert sits on a bale of hay before reaching behind his ear. “You know he had to come back. Wasn't all that palaver last year about building belief in him again?”

YES..

“And we did. Little blighters that didn't believe before do now and that's thanks to you.” Albert stuck the roll-up behind his ear while he pats himself for hid matches. “So what's wrong?”” He finds the matches and reaches behind his ear.

I MISS …

“... yes?”

THE SLEIGH.

Albert shakes his head (after he lights the butt). “Righto,” he replies. “I'll fry up some ham, pease and eggs and then we can consider how we can use a sleigh.”

YOU ARE NOT BEING FUNNY?

“Would I do that, master?” He pauses. “Never mind.” He pinches the butt between his fingers and walks toward the house. “What kind of sleigh were you thinking?”

ONE THAT USES PIGS.

Albert looks to Binky. “See you in the spring.”

Binky neighs after them.

And so, he lives on!

But umm, sleighs are usually pulled by reindeer. Or horses. Though this -is- Death.
