Wooden Horse (The).
Peter of Provence had a wooden horse named Babica. (See CLAVILENO.)
This very day may be seen in the kings ar moury the identical peg with which Peter of Provence turned his Wooden Horse, which carried him through the air. It is rather bigger than the pole of a coach, and stands near Babiecas saddle.Don Quixote, pt. i. bk. iv. 19.
