Example text

So versicherten mir wenigstens die Leute. « Und dann erzählten sie mir die Sage vom karabaghischen Pferd: Alles sei in ihrem Lande schön. Am schönsten aber sei das Pferd von Karabagh, jenes berühmte Pferd, für das Aga Mohammed, Schah von Persien, seinen ganzen Harem abgeben wollte. ) Dieses Pferd sei beinahe heilig. Jahrhundertelang hatten die Weisen gegrübelt und gepaart, bis dieses Wunder der Zucht geboren war: das beste Pferd der Welt, das berühmte rotgelbe Edeltier aus Karabagh. Von so viel Lob neugierig gemacht, bat ich, mir eines der herrlichen Rosse zu zeigen.
