But marefoles, both likely of bulke and of bone: kepe such to bring coltes, let their gelding alone. 54. For gaining a trifle, sell neuer thy store: for chaunsing on worse, then thine owne were before. More larger of body, the better for brede: more forward of growing, the better they spede. 55. Thy sowes, great with fare, that come best for to rere: loke dayly thou seest them, and count them full dere.

In January, husbandes that powcheth the grotes: will breake vp their lay, or be sowing of otes.
