Hebrew Word







[(K)H-R-SH → HRS]


There is no Indo-European “root” for HORSE, a clue that the British used this creature differently from others (who plow with an ox or bull). 

 [K]HoReSH  means plower (the verb is at Micah 3;12).  A HORSE is the creature in English-speaking lands that is pulling the plow or hearse (formerly a plow), see HEARSE.  The HORSE requires blinders and whips, while  the   שור   SHOAR (ox or bull, whose name is contained in חרש [K]HoReSH) is programmed to plow in straight rows (see SHEER and “SERIES”) for this  ש-ר  Shin-Resh theme.


A German war-horse is a ross. The  H has been dropped, as seen in an Icelandic horse term:  hross ( added by Leo Bredehoft).  Another etymon for HORSE is suggested atPEGASUS.     Around the globe, people think 1) ride, 2) mule,  3) haste, 4) donkey  or 5) hoof  (in Edenic of course) to name this creature. There’s 1)  רחב  ReKHeBH, mount (Exodus 15:2),  becoming  French cheval or Spanish caballo (related to the CHIVALRY of mounted knights), 2) German Pferd or Dutch paard are from PeReD, mule, 3) Danish and Norwegian hest may be seen at HASTE, 4) Polish kon and Czech kun (Genesis 22:3) are forms of  חמור K[H]aMOAR, donkey – see MARE,  and 5) for the Latin horse, equs, see HOOF.

It is thought that a Spanish gentleman (cabalerro) named the horse, rather than the horse naming the mouned knight..  The Spanish must be compared  to the c apall , a horse or mare in I rish.

 Search “horse” for the many global horse words that come from other Edenic words, and see the Animal Names chapter in The Origin of Speeches .  רחב   ReKHeBH, mount, (above) may have provided the liquid (shifted) and guttural for the Albanian horse: kale.  

R-S plowing appears (reversed) in the German PLOWSHARE, Schar.
