A hare was very popular with the other beasts who all claimed to be her friend, but one
day she heard the hounds approaching and hoped to escape them with the help of her
many friends. “What are friends for,” she asked herself, “if not to help out in time of
need?” Furthermore, most of her friends were big and brave, so at least one should be
able to help. First she went to the horse, and asked him to carry her away from the
hounds on his back. But he declined, stating that he had important work to do for his
master. ” I feel sure,” he said, “that all your other friends will come to your assistance.”
She then applied to the bull, and hoped that he would repel the hounds with his horns.
The bull replied: “I am very sorry, but I have an appointment with a lady. However, I feel
sure that our friend the goat will do what you want.” The goat, however, feared that his
back might be harmed if he took her upon it. The ram, he felt sure, was the proper friend
to apply to. So she went to the ram and told him the case. The ram replied: “Another time,
my dear friend. I do not like to interfere on the present occasion, as hounds have been
known to eat sheep as well as hares.” The hare then applied, as a last hope, to the calf,
who regretted that he was unable to help her. He did not like to take the responsibility
upon himself, as so many older persons had declined the task. By this time the hounds
were quite near, so the hare had to take to her heels. Luckily, she escaped.

I would like to know the answer of the next question.
A suitable moral for this story would be:
1. a friend in need is a friend indeed.
2. never rely on your friends in a time of crisis.
3. popularity does not mean friendship.
4. friendship does not exist among animals.
5. in a time of crisis you discover who your true friends are.

Greetings, Wowenglish,

the moral is a practical lesson that a story teaches you; besides, this piece of wisdom is often conveyed in form of an idiom. Therefore, I suppose that No. 1 is most suitable. No. 5 does not raise any objections, too, but it is a mere restatement of the first one.

Respectfully, Gleb Chebrikoff

But one day she heard the hounds approaching and hoped to escape them with the help of her many friends. “What are friends for,” she asked herself, “if not to help out in time of need?” Furthermore, most of her friends were big and brave, so at least one should be able to help.

However, I feel sure that our friend the goat will do what you want.” The goat, however, feared that his back might be harmed if he took her upon it. The ram, he felt sure, was the proper friend to apply to. So she went to the ram and told him the case. The ram replied: “Another time, my dear friend.
