Horace was the horse which towed the menfolk of Coronation Street when they enjoyed a canalbarge trip on the waterways of Cheshire in August 1967. The animal kept stopping of its own accord and wouldn't move despite Len Fairclough's best efforts. In the end, Dennis Tanner entreated it to move and it did so. After that, it instantly obeyed any command from Dennis.
- The horse was given its own credit on the episode and was played by a real bargehorse called Fred.
