  • "Horses have always been the most reluctant quadruped passengers (aboard ships), with good reason: they are terrible sailors. Unable to vomit, they exhibited the extent of their suffering by an attack of what handlers called the 'gapes.' American and Canadian cavalry mounts transported across the ocean en masse during World War I were quite miserable. One of the hazards aggravated by rough weather was a phenomenon known as a horse storm, when the ship's roll was amplified by hundreds of animals trampling in frightened unison back and forth in their abbreviated stalls."
