"bells on bobtail ring" definitely confusing

Multiple people found our blog from google searches over the past week (a noticeable increase), and I wanted to see why the sudden rise in hits from google....The searches all centered around the phrase "Bells on bobtail ring".

If you search the phrase below, our blog is the #1 entry returned. I guess this provides a little vindication to my sister-in-law. She's not the only person confused by this phrase.

  1. A sleigh horse usually had bobbed a bobbed tail, so it wouldn't be so long as to get caught up in the sleigh etc. The harness usually had a piece that went around the horse's tail, and on this were put bells, because they were close to the riders.
