Excerpt from The Horse, in Health and Disease, or Suggestions on His Natural and General History, Varieties, Conformation, Paces, Action, Age, Soundness, Stabling, Condition, Training, and Shoeing: With a Digest of Veterinary Practice
It is probable that this poetical allegory was primarily intended to convey nothing more than that the Olive was the fruit of sagacious culti vation, and the horse first introduced to their islands by some adventurous voyager from the adjacent continent; subsequent poets confirm this view by representing Neptune as striking the earth with his trident, and thereby giving existence to the horse.
