The 5th labor
For his 5th labor Hercules had to clean the Augean stables.He had to clean them in one day and if he did Augeas would give him on tenth of his cattle.
Clean the stables in a single day, and I will give you 1/10 of my cattle.
Hercules used his clever knowledge, for coming up with the great idea to break down the barn walls.He the used his incredible strength to move the rivers so that they flow through the barn and washed out all of the poop.He showed his tenacity by cleaning the entire barn and did it in one day so he passed the test.
OK I shall go home then.
Hercules succeeded but then got denied his reward but was hedidn't care.The old man was not very happy because he wanted Hercules to fail. He learned not to challenge demigods.
You cannot have my cattle but thank you.
Hercules had to clean the Augean stables for his 5th labor and he had to do it in one day.Even though it wasn't as violent as some of the other ones it was still hard. The stables where very dirty and full of poop.Even though Hercules was very strong even he couldn't shovel everything away in one day.Hercules WAS thinking "I AM strong but not strong enough, it LOOKS hard,like it would take a week to do this normaly but I can do something else to wash everything out."Hercules PUNCHED out the walls then PUSHED the rivers so that they would go through the barn and wash everything out.He did all of this and cleaned all of the stables in one day.The old man was very unhappy and did not reward him but Hercules didn't care and he just went home.
