The Horse's Hooves: A month from turning age four, a horse had been the bilingual ASL-speaking Juli's imaginative identity. She often acted as a horse, hoofing around.

One day she dressed up by herself and came downstairs. Her feet were bare. I told her in ASL, (translated as) "It's cold here. You'd better get yourself socks." Juli explained, no, horse have cl-hooves. not need socks. I explained how hooves were a form of socks. Juli replied, socks inside-foot from-mouth-down ("Socks are inside the hooves.").
