The fifteen points of a good horse: 2
“A good horse sholde have three propyrtees of a man, three of a woman, three of a foxe, three of a haare, and three of an asse.
“Of a man. Bolde, prowde, and hardye.
“Of a woman. Fayre-breasted, faire of heere, and easy to move.
“Of a foxe. A fair taylle, short eers, with a good trotte.
“Of a haare. A grate eye, a dry head, and well rennynge.
“Of an asse. A bygge chynn, a flat legge, and a good hoof.”—Wynkyn de Worde (1496).
