Good idea - didn't know this one Bonnie, but you've sure been busy with all these puzzles. Still have a few to do ! (❀ᴗ❀)

Surreal_Heidi

Yep, this was easy.

Same to you, my friends. Enjoy your Easter weekend.

I love horses too but did not know :(( - the word "behave" is unlikely in max's vocabulary, ellen. good morning to ellen and max. hope you all have a great easter weekend.

YAY! As a lifelong horse lover (Max, BEHAVE!) this was an easy question for me.

Max_Tooney

Not to be confused with the Hank Williams song, "Bocephus".

And the answer is................Bucephalus

Bucephalus or Bucephalas, "ox" and κεφαλή kephalē, "head" meaning "ox-head") (c. 355 BC – June 326 BC) was the horse of Alexander the Great, and one of the most famous horses of antiquity.
Ancient accounts state that Bucephalus died after the Battle of the Hydaspes in 326 BC, in what is now modern Punjab Province of Pakistan, and is buried in Jalalpur Sharif outside Jhelum, Punjab, Pakistan. Another account states that Bucephalus is buried in Phalia, a town in Pakistan's Mandi Bahauddin District in Punjab Province, which is named after him (Alexandria Bucephalous).
Bucephalus was named after a branding mark depicting an ox's head on his haunch.

that would re-charge my batteries - no idea about that horse's name.

PutterDutt

I know this one, and LOVE the puzzle!

manicpuzzler

LOL Max, very clever. Crossing Europe on a jelly fish …….. interesting :))

Max_Tooney

I'm guessing it wasn't 'Man O' War'? (Would have been appropriate, no?)

I put a bet on a horse that had excellent breeding. After the horse left the starting gate, he stopped and closed it behind him.
