That is a beast, pomely or spotted, that is but a little more high than is a steed, but he hath the neck a twenty cubits long; and his croup and his tail is as of an hart; and he may look over a great high house.
qms commented on the word pomely
To some a horse is made homely
By a coat that's mottled and pomely,
But my heart is kindled
By all that is brindled,
Recalling my old pinto pony.
