Thread Name: Songs about Horses
Subject: RE: Songs about Horses
I did just now see an error in my transcription of Troy Cassar-Daley's song -- wondering, fast asleep should be wandering, fat and sleek. Should have paid closer attention to Paterson's original!

Another Australian song I thought of was Saddle Boy, originally by Slim Dusty and later recorded to good advantage by the Dead Ringer Band. You can find Kasey and Bill Chambers version on youtube That is one in which the horse has secondary billing, but still worth listing.
