An Estonian fairy tale, this version is from Tales of The Amber Sea, compiled and translated by Irina Zheleznova in 1974.
One day a horse was out grazing in the field when a mosquito flew up to him.
Said the mosquito, seeing that the horse did not notice him: “Don’t you see me, Horse?”
“I see you now,” the horse replied.
The mosquito looked over the horse – he looked at his tail, his back, his hoofs, his neck and at both his ears, one after the other. He looked and he shook his head.
“You’re terribly big , friend, aren’t you!” said he.
