Snake was bred in Yorkshire by Matthew Lister, and probably covered in the stud of Mr Robinson at Easby, near Richmond, Yorkshire. He was never in training, being rendered incapable by a tumourous swelling that attended him in his youth; and from a suppostion that the same was the effect of the sting or bite of some venomous reptile, was therefore called Snake [Pick 1:6]. Among his sons were Bay Wilkinson, Beaver's Driver, Lowther, the brothers Easby Snake and William's Squirrel, and Snake Colt.
