Summary: 

In a more sophisticated, adult-like voice, Bayard draws an extended comparison of Joby and Granny's squabbling as "like a man and a mare," in which the mare (Granny) kicks him, "not viciously but just enough, and the man knows it was going to happen and so he is glad then" (44); in Bayard's musing, the man then thinks it is over, but then "the mare turns her head and nips him," concluding that Joby and Rosa's back-and-forth arguments, "Granny always beat him, not bad: just exactly enough" (45).
