| With all this discussion of pigs, etc. I want to ask about the horse in
| Celtic tradition. My early Scotch-Irish (men) ancestors in the U.S. were
| often horse experts: trainers, riders, scouts, etc. I have never heard
| that this was particularly a tradition, except in one article which
| mentioned "Horse Whisperers" who were said to be able to talk with
| horses. Does anyone have any background on this?

There was a conference in Edinburgh a couple months ago called "The
Celtic Horse", and the conference proceedings should be coming out as
a bound book in the next few months. Edited by Nerys Ann Jones Brown.
