inert- having no inherent power of action, motion, or resistance.(137)

"Its eyes are open wide. A lake of dark blood spreads from its neck."(140) This quote is referring to the part in the book when they have to kill another one of Marlena's show horses. A man slit the throat of the gray horse and Jacob saw it because he was making sure that Marlena didn't see it. I like this quote because i like the way the author describes it with the lake of blood and how it really makes you have a bad feeling for the poor horse.
