As a way of getting my daughter interested in the Iliad and the Greek mythology, I told her about the wonderful horses which Zeus gave to Achilles. Rouse translates their names as Bay and Piebald. Through Google and this site, I learn that their names in the Greek are Xanthus and Balius.

Oh, by the way, we stopped at a small ranch yesterday, near Gum Branch where Liberty and Long Counties border each other. Annie Franck and Altgeld got to ride a small tame pony. We may budget to have Annie Franck learn to care and ride horses.
