I was browsing through my mp3 files and I came upon this praise for a horse that I had never listened to. I wanted to translate it, but I got too lazy, plus in the praises they use a very poetic language, so I was not able to interpret everything. Since horses are so important in Mongolian culture, an individual horse can get a song written just for the animal. It describes its physical characteristics, how fast it is, etc... Anyway, it is dedicated to a bay horse that won the race of the older horses at the 1986 Naadam. The trainer, Khanddorj was from the Central aimag.
