Excerpt from Our Domestic Fowls
It 1s not until a later period that we read Of the horse, namely, under the rule Of Joseph in Egypt, when he gave them bread in ex change for horses, and for the ﬂocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses. But this notice, in conjunction with another in Genesis xlix. 17, Dan shall be a serpent in the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse's heels, so that his rider shall fall backward, proves that, in some districts at least, this animal had been subjugated: and we know that, on the departure of the Israel ites from Egypt, the monarch pursued them with horsemen and chariots. Horses are sub sequently noticed abundantly, as are also mules; nor need we refer our reader to the numerous passages in which distinct mention is made of them.
