Horses bring out the best in our kind; they inspire adoration and compassion. They act as both muse and catharsis for artists and writers of all centuries and genres.In the works of Homer, Aesop, Steinbeck and Yeats, and in sources that range from the Bible and Dante's Inferno to Beryl Markham's West with the Night, references to horses abound.
For such show-business personalities as Mr. Ed and Henry Youngman, horses are wonderful fodder. And politics, too, is rife with analogies to the horse, from the words of Winston Churchill to those of Governor Earl Long.
