Especially as Google image search (imho, the likeliest avenue of searching
for images) gives 130 000 pictures of horses on Commons if searched in
English, zero if searched in Estonian ("hobu"), and while it gives 160 000
results for a Hungarian search ("ló") on the first page only one of it is an
image that resembles a horse.
