You get three profiles in one from The Stranger. First, an animal clean-up crew. Second, a Mrs. Beasley, in brief. Third, the writer:
When Mrs. Beasley returned the next day, which was warm again, Dandy had not left the spot of his drop. We both looked at the poor horse, and I pretended to be as puzzled as Mrs. Beasley. What’s wrong with Dandy? Why does he look so down and out of it? Angel was silently standing at a distance. He, like I, did not throw any light on the mystery. The ice in Dandy’s stall had melted. There was no evidence of my error. It was decided that if Dandy did not rise the next day, a horse doctor would be called.Dandy did not rise the next day because he was dead.
