Heavy Horses is the second in the trilogy of folk-rock albums by the British progressive rock band Jethro Tull, released in 1978. The embroiders thematic on Songs From The Wood, but musically it's a lot darker and focus a little more on the ' rock ' in folk rock. There are songs about English rural life with his animals, and about the urbanization thereof.

From ...And The Mouse Police Never Sleeps:

"Maharjan, black with steel-green eye
swishing through the rye grass
with thoughts of mouse-and-apple pie.
Tail balancing at half-mast. "
"Look out, little furry folk!
He's the all-night working cat.
Eats but one in every ten
leaves the others on the mat. "
