  • We have plenty of hay and fodder for the animals.
  • "Bagheera spoke truth," he panted, as he nestled down in some cattle fodder by the window of a hut.
    Rudyard Kipling  --  The Jungle Book
  • Once they’d drained the bowls she filled, suddenly
    she struck with her wand, drove them into her pigsties,
    all of them bristling into swine—with grunts,
    snouts—even their bodies, yes, and only
    the men’s minds stayed steadfast as before.
    So off they went to their pens, sobbing, squealing
    as Circe flung them acorns, cornel nuts and mast,
    common fodder for hogs that root and roll in mud.
    Homer  --  The Odyssey
  • Or give us a team of oxen to drive, purebreds,
    hulking, ruddy beasts, both lusty with fodder,
    paired for age and pulling-power that never flags—
    Homer  --  The Odyssey
