Boreas  was the Greek god of the cold north wind and the bringer of winter.

His name meant "North Wind" or "Devouring One" (with borealis being Latin for nothern).

Boreas and Zephyros would sweep down upon the mares in the early spring and fertilize

them in the shape of wind-formed stallions.

The horses born from these couplings were the swiftest and finest of their kind.

The Fabulous horses of King Laomedon of Troy were said to have been sired in this way

by Boreas upon the Trojan mares...  Enjoy the abstract ...You can
