Worth including in ABC? The dreaded alligator horse of Kentucky.


  1. This begs the question of Mr. ABOC and any other interested readers; if you were frontiersman and folk-hero, what animal-hybrid abomination would you be?

    I’m going to go with the back half of a babirusa and the front half of a banana slug.


  2. “Behind it stood our little force,
    None wished it to be greater,
    For ev’ry man was half a horse,
    And half an alligator.”
    It was from a song that commemorated Kentucky’s involvement in the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812. It was actually a wildly popular song for awhile.
