Steve is a fine horse. But he thinks he could be finer. He wants to be exceptional.

He immediately ties the horn to the top of his head and prances off to show his friends. Not everyone is impressed, but most of his friends agree -- Steve and his horn are indeed exceptional. In fact, many of his friends are so inspired, they decide to tie items to the tops of their heads as well.
