William Shakespeare

“He’s of the colour of the nutmeg. And of the heat of the ginger…. he is pure air and fire; and the dull elements of earth and water never appear in him, but only in patient stillness while his rider mounts him; he is indeed a horse, and all other jades you may call beasts.”

― William ShakespeareHenry V

“I don’t like people,” said Velvet. “… I only like horses.”

James Whitcomb Riley

“I bless the hoss from hoof to head –

From head to hoof, and tale to mane! –

I bless the hoss, as I have said,

From head to hoof, and back again!


― James Whitcomb Riley
