The Horse-Tamer's Daughter is a filk album named after the title song; a songbook of the same title was also released. The album was sung by Julia Ecklar, and most of the songs were written by Leslie Fish.
The story behind Threes was eventually incorporated into the book Oathbreakers in Mercedes Lackey's world of Velgarth.


Everyone knows someone we'd be better off without
But best not mention names for we don't know who's about
But why commit a murder and risk the fire's of hell
When black widows in the privy can do it just as well

Now poisons good and daggers, and arrows in the back
And if your really desperate you can try a front attack
But are they really worthy of the risk of being caught
When black widows in the privy need nothing bribed or bought

So if there's one of whom you wish just simply to be rid
Just wait till dark then point the way to where the widows hid
And say to them "I think you'll find that this one is the best"
And black widows in the privy will gladly do the rest
