So he said, "Very well, if you can win the princess you shall have her, but these are the conditions in eight days you must find, tame and bring to me three special wild horses. The first is pure white, the second a foxy-red with a black head, and the third is coal-black with a white head and feet. You must also bring as a present to the empress, my wife, as much gold as the three horses can carry on their backs."
