Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

A horse from 18th century France in a spaceship from the 51st.

The horse is large mammal native to Earth. Humans used horses as transportation for thousands of years prior to the invention of motorised transport.

The Trojan War ended when the Greek army, on the Doctor's advice, constructed a giant wooden statue of a horse, hid inside it and presented it to Troy. (DW: The Myth Makers) The Trojan Horse would go on to become a frequently used metaphor for hidden danger.

Horses are also known to have evolved on other planets, such as

Cheetah World (DW: Survival),
Telos (BFA: Spare Parts),
presumably, Augea. (NSA: Sting of the Zygons)

Equinoids are a species of humanoid horse. (DW: Frontier in Space, RT: Perceptions) Members of another equine species resided on Sunset Strip. (DWAM: Gangster's Paradise)

Christopher Pike and his horse Tango

Horses (Equus caballus) are a species of large hoofed mammalian quadruped which originate from Earth. Humans used horses for centuries as a means for transportation. Human military organizations also used horses, notably in cavalry raids. (DS9 episode: "Once More Unto the Breach")

When the Skagarans kidnapped humans from Earth in the mid-19th century, they also took a number of horses which with the humans were resettled on a planet in the Delphic Expanse. After the humans overthrew the Skagarans they continued to use their horses as transportation until at least the mid-22nd century when they were discovered by the crew of the starship Enterprise. Charles Tucker and T'Pol acquired horses for riding while secretly investigating the settlement, although T'Pol had some difficulty with her horse. (ENT episode: "North Star")

With the rise of motorized transport in the early 20th century, horseback riding has become a primarily recreational activity. Horse racing, which gained popularity in the mid 19th century, continued well into the 23rd century, with the running of such prestigious races as the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont (known collectively as the Triple Crown). (TOS novel: Vulcan's Forge)

In the 2220s, teraformer Heston Prescott transported a number of horses and frozen horse embryos from Earth to the colony world of Elysium. It was his intent to introduce horses to that world, which had no native quadrupeds similar to horses. He was able to implant several of the embryos into the mares which he had brought, which were able to carry their young successfully to term. One of the young horses born on Elysium was a bay colt which Heston's stepson Christopher named Tango. Later when Heston and Christopher's mother Willa McKinnies died in a large fire in 2231, Charlie Pike brought Tango and Christopher back to Earth. Years later when the Talosians tried to convince the then Captain Christopher Pike to remain with them, they used an illusion of Tango. Tango would remain on Charlie's farm for the rest of his life, dying shortly after Spock took Chris to Talos IV in 2267. (TOS novel: Burning Dreams & episode: "The Cage")

While held captive by Romulans on planet Obsidian in 2296, Leonard McCoy made a lengthy statement about famous racehorses, which the Romulans interpreted as his Right of Statement relating to glorious warbeasts. Centurion Ruanek later expressed an interest in bringing horses back to the Empire. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Forge)

James T. Kirk had an uncle who rasied horses on his farm in Idaho. Kirk would often ride his uncle's horses through the nearby countryside and would often jump a large chasm, an act which Kirk admitted "scared the hell" out of him each time. In 2282, during one of these horseback rides Kirk met Antonia, before returning to teach at Starfleet Academy. Kirk revisited the farm while trapped within the Nexus. Kirk jumped the large chasm, but then realized that this time he did not feel fear. This led him to realize that what he was experiencing wasn't real, and opted to leave the Nexus with Jean-Luc Picard. (TNG movie, novelization & comic adaptation: Generations)

One of the gifts Captain Picard gave to the Ligonian ruler was a statue of a horse created in the Chinese Sung dynasty. (TNG episode: "Code of Honor")

During the 24th century, the holodeck on board the Enterprise had a number of programs with riding horses. Captain Picard enjoyed horseback riding and actually had his own saddle aboard the Enterprise. (TNG episodes: "Suddenly Human", "Pen Pals", "Starship Mine")

Fallout

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From The Vault

It is interesting to note that horses have never been shown or mentioned in a Fallout game, other than in the rantings of Dane in Fo1. This indicates that horses did not survive the Great War in North America[1], although there is a possibility that they exist in other parts of the globe.

References

  1. Chris Avellone asked about whether horses survived the War in Fallout Bible 8: Nope. Some mules did (the poor mule killed by the raiders in F1), but not for long. Besides, I think that mule was a discrepancy.

Runescape

(Redirected to Toy horsey article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

A detailed image a toy horsey.

A Toy horsey is an item made as a joke by Jagex, poking fun at the requests made by players to have horses. It was released on 1 April as part of the 2004 April Fools joke. It is only the second time in which horses exist in RuneScape, though unicorns are similar to horses.

If players wish to travel between Shilo Village and Brimhaven using the cart, and ask the men Vigroy or Hajedy about if they can take players there, they get this information: You jump into the cart and the driver urges the horses on. You take a taxing journey through the jungle to Brimhaven/Shilo Village. Even though horses are mentioned, they are never seen.

Toy horseys are obtainable from Diango for 175 coins, and come in four different colours: white, black, grey, and brown. Members can also make one from a plank on any crafting table in their player-owned house. They need a Crafting level 10 or higher, and gain 15 experience points in doing so[1].

A player plays with his brown toy horsey.

When playing with the horsey, an animation appears showing the character playing with it. Text appears above the player's head, which will be a horse related-phrase such as Come on Dobbin, we can win the race!, Hi-ho Silver, and away! or Neaahhhyyy! Giddy-up horsey!

"That's not a star cruiser. That's a horse. Horses don't fly."
Cindel Towani

Horses were domesticated animals used as mounts and beasts of burden on many inhabited worlds in the galaxy.

Horse was the vernacular name for the species used in Basic. The technical term used by scientists was equus. In Ewokese, the species was called "pulga." A small horse was called a "pony" in Basic and a "gaupa" in Ewokese.

An Ewok riding a gaupa rides to slow-down a spooked pulga on the run.

When Cindel Towani was befriended by Wicket after her family crashed on Endor, he showed her an Ewok-made pulga statue, which she identified as a horse. Apparently, at least one world visited by the Towani family in the Galactic Empire had horses.

The Ewoks mainly used small gaupas to ride, but also used large pulgas for heavier loads. In the quest to rescue the Towani parents, most of the Ewoks involved rode gaupas, while Cindel and Wicket traveled in a children-carrying basket aboard a full-sized pulga.

The Force-sensitive witches of Dathomir possessed beautiful black horses, which they sometimes rode instead of Dathomiri rancors. Some of the witches, notably Charal, possessed rings of mysterious (possibly Sith) origin with strange Force "magic" properties that allowed the witches to change the physical shapes of both themselves and their steeds.

A pulga carrying a basket with Cindel Towani inside.

Charal apparently brought her Dathomiri steed with her to the forest moon. To lure Cindel into a trap, she changed her own shape into a beautiful lady, and her horse into a white steed. Apparently, white horses were considered symbolic of purity and nobility in the Galactic Empire.

The Sanyassan Marauders under King Terak also used large horses as mounts. It is possible they brought these steeds with them to the forest moon, as Charal brought her own horse. The Marauders crashed on Endor almost 100 years before the Battle of Yavin, and the horses and ponies used by the Ewoks may well have been descended from Marauder-introduced stock.

Behind the scenes

George Lucas's Ewok movies featured numerous real, Earth animals, although it should be noted that so did The Phantom Menace, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.

Note that many fans have incorrectly confused Endorian ponies with bordoks.

Charal tricking Cindel by turning her horse white seems to indicate that little Human girls, like those of Earth, enjoy bed-time fairy-tales of pretty princesses on white horses, and probably every little girl dreams of owning one. The Ewoks movies were more like traditional Earth fantasies than many Star Wars fans appreciate, but are still considered canon.

Many animals in the Star Wars galaxy resemble horses, but are not. These include four-eared equinoids from Cleroff's World, and numerous species of Naboo: gualaars, guarlaras, and gualamas.

  • Ewoks: The Battle for Endor
  • Star Wars 101: Far, Far Away
