The great Benedictine monastery of Black Monks was situated away from the city at Westminster, and it was the only monastic house subject to the rule of St Benedict in the neigh roofing tenements.
So, with a snort and a neigh and a whisk of his short tail he trotted off the roof into the air and at once began floating downward to the street.
With a wild neigh of terror the animal fell bodily into the pit, drawing the buggy and its occupants after him.
Their cry is peculiar, being something between the belling of a deer and the neigh of a horse.
The cab-horse was about to reply when suddenly he gave a start and a neigh of terror and stood trembling like a leaf.
