Holliday v Morgan: 2 Nov 1858

A warranty of soundness, oil the sale of a horse, is broken by a malformation, existing from the birth of the horse, which, at the time of the sale, renders the horse less fit for reasonable use. – As an extraordinary convexity of the cornea of the eye, producing shortsightedness, in consequence of which the horse is liable to shy. – Such a defect in the eye is not so patent a defect that a purchaser with express warranty is bound to notice it.
