Where does the speaker stop his horse?

Where does the speaker stop his horse?

In this poem, however, the speaker states, "My small horse must consider it strange/To stop without a farmhouse nearby" (lines 5–6). They've stopped somewhere off the beaten route, in the woods, which isn't where they usually stop. This shows that they're not out for a leisurely ride but rather that there's something urgent that brings them away from home.

Now, let's look at the line itself: "My small horse must consider it strange/To stop without a farmhouse nearby" (my bolding). First, we have the word "small". The context of the line is that of a man on a large horse who has stopped to listen to something. If the horse were larger, he wouldn't be able to stop so close to where he wants to listen without being seen or heard by others.

Secondly, we have the word "strange". Again, the context of the line is that of a man on a large horse who has stopped to listen to something. To stop without a farmhouse nearby means to stop where there are no other people about - especially when you are a large animal like a horse.

Finally, we have the word "strange". Once more, the context of the line is that of a man on a large horse who has stopped to listen to something.

When the narrator stops, why does the horse think it is queer?

The narrator states the horse finds it strange "to stop without a farmhouse nearby" (line 6), implying that the horse is used to stopping where there are buildings rather than in the midst of the woods. This suggests that the horse has been taken from its home and brought into the city, which could be London if you read between the lines.

Also, the horse seems surprised by people (especially men) when they appear out of nowhere. This implies that it has been very long since it last saw anyone other than its owner.

Finally, when the man approaches the horse, it kicks at him as a way of defending itself. This shows that the horse is not happy to see him.

Based on this information, we can assume that the horse has been stolen from its home and transported into the city. It is then sold to a trader who takes it to sea so that it can work on a ship for several months before being traded again and ending up in America.

What does the horse do to attract his master’s attention?

The horse is rattling his harness bells, as if he is wondering if halting is a mistake. This poem is about a person driving a horse-drawn carriage through the woods on a winter evening. As a result, the horse is concerned for his master.

Horses have an innate sense of when someone is afraid or unsure of themselves. They can read our body language and emotions, so they will often try to comfort us by doing what's called "mirroring" behavior. That means acting like something is wrong even when there isn't anything wrong. For example, if you are angry, horses might sidestep away from you or shake their heads in protest even if they aren't aware of why you are angry.

This poem is about a man driving a carriage through the woods at night. Because it is winter, there is no way for him to know if the path he is taking is safe. So the horse prepares himself for whatever may happen by being ready to help his master if needed.
