Can't remember the title but there's a trad song - Steeleye Span do it, about a farmer who goes takes his old grey mare to market to sell her, and gets tricked by a trader, who, having tidied her up (plaited her mane etc) sells her back to the farmer as a different animal, much to the disgust of his wife and daughter.
