Sorry Foolestroupe,

Prad is an old (eastern?) English word for horse " ... by metahesis from the Dutch paard".

I keep hearing wondrous "theories" about older English words surving in Australian songs ("prog" is another perennial) - apparently from people who don't own an English language dictionary!
