Horse

Wild horses, or "brumbies," are common throughout central Cape York Peninsula.

The tail of a horse is called awayirr in Uw Olkola and Uw Oykangand.

The Pakanh word yarraman for horse is a common Cape York pigeon word. The Uw Oykangand and Uw Olkola word iyarraman is obviously derived from this with the addition of the initial vowel /i/, since words in these languages begin with a vowel.
