Punch, 38 (1860), 29.
Saddling the Right Horse
Animal Behaviour, Psychology, Medical Treatment
Discusses a Herefordshire [i.e. Hereford] Times article concerning a case, dating from 1806, of a horse which had a violent aversion to paper, but 'not the slightest fear of objects that would terrify most horses'. The report adds that attempts to cure the horse were unsuccessful. Believes the story is fabulous and meant to be allegorical.
