The Devil's Coach-Horses is a 1925 essay by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The essay discusses eaueres, a word found in the 1922 Early English Text Society Edition of Hali Meiðhad. Tolkien suggests that rather than meaning boar, the word should be translated as draught horse.[1]

The Devil's Coach-Horses was first published in The Review of English Studies, Vol. 1 No. 3 (July 1925), and was reprinted in The Review of English Studies, Vol. 1 (1969). The essay also appeared separately as a six-page pamphlet.[2][3]
