The Horse: Hiram
Hiram, the veteran of many long backbreaking military campaigns, is big and strong but not really very sharp. He pulls a long haul wagon for Ephraim, the innkeeper Eliza's cousin and consequently lives in the stable behind the Inn. Hiram is convinced that Miles (Mr. Mouse) was an army general before he took command of his network of pickpockets operating out of the stable in Bethlehem.
Obedient and trusting, Hiram is a willing participant in Mr. Mouse's undercover distribution of products and accomplices throughout the land.
