The Adventures of Baron Munchhausen The Hare With Eight Legs

Yes, wonderful things happened to me in Russia. One day I was following an unusual rabbit. The rabbit was very fast. Running and running, if only he could take a break…

I ran after him for two days without getting off my horse, but I couldn’t reach him.

My faithful dog, Dianka, was not a step away from the rabbit, but I could not approach him even a space of a ball.

On the third day, however, I was able to hit the damn rabbit. As soon as it fell on the grass, I jumped off the horse and started looking at him.

I was surprised  when I saw that the rabbit had four legs on his stomach and four legs on his back.

Yes, he had wonderful strong legs on his back. When his lower legs were tired, he turned on his back, his belly up and his legs still running.

No wonder I ran after him like crazy for three days!
