Not about horses

This isn't about horses, it's about idiomatic expressions that happen to contain the word "horse." 20:23, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

It describes how horses were used and discussed in canon, which is what this wiki is about. It is not intended to provide all information on horses; we provide a Wikipedia link for that purpose. 31dot 00:44, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

I wasn't looking for information on horses as such, but I assumed it would be limited to discussion of times when horses appeared onscreen or at least featured in discussions that were actually about horses. "Come down off your high horse" and "fixed the barn door . . . " hardly qualify. 04:09, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

It is still valid content. We have many articles which only discuss something mentioned in an expression. An aside: please keep your indentation consistent through the talk page. 31dot 11:32, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, sorry. Well, it's your Wiki, if you think this is valid . . . No skin off my nose, I suppose. 15:05, October 3, 2010 (UTC)


Any idea where I can find info on vehicles pulled by a horse or multiple horses, such as a carriage/cart/buckboard/buggy? --Defiant (talk) 14:43, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

I'm not entirely sure I understand what you are asking correctly, but we do have an article on wagons. -- Capricorn (talk) 15:24, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

Fantastic! Thanks. :) --Defiant (talk) 15:27, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

Preliminary appearances & references lists




I've removed, from the intro, references to the terms "mare", (a female horse), "colt" (a young male horse), and "gelding" (a castrated male horse), as these 3 terms have not been used in Star Trek and therefore essentially fall into the category of "if you want to know more, look up Wikipedia." --Defiant (talk) 17:13, March 14, 2018 (UTC)

Actually, "mare" does appear in "Pen Pals". Picard mentions that "A fine war mare would sleep in a bedouin's tent, carry him into battle, feed his children with her milk." --LauraCC (talk) 17:21, March 14, 2018 (UTC)

Actually, no, that's a misprint in the transcript. On screen, Picard instead says, "a fine warhorse." --Defiant (talk) 17:52, March 14, 2018 (UTC)

It was here, too. [1] --LauraCC (talk) 17:57, March 14, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for this bginfo :) --Defiant (talk) 13:48, March 15, 2018 (UTC)
