Dogs, Cats, and Horses in the Scottish Medieval town - article

Salvete Omnes,

February 2020 AD is flying by - lots of great reading out there and plenty of studying too.

For those of you who are curious about the horse during the Middle Ages, and in the Medieval Scotland in particular, I propose to take ah hour or two and read the article, available on academia, titled 'Dogs, Cats and Horses in the Scottish medieval town' by Catherine Smith (1998).
so in this artoicle we have an introduction to the horse or garron of Medieval Scotland.

 finally, in this context comes this study by Emily Abrehart of horse bones excavated in London from the period of 1220 to 1900AD that includes quite interesting  discussion on the horses' sizes during the 700 years period -
illuminations from Wiki Commons are attached just for illustration purposes and their beauty.
