English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Old French vives, French avives (compare Spanish abivas), from Arabic [Term?].

Noun[edit]

vives (uncountable)

  1. (obsolete) A disease of animals, especially horses, based in the glands under the ear, where a tumour is formed which sometimes ends in suppuration.
    • 1816, Richard Lawrence, The complete farrier, and British sportsman (page 245)
      The Vives, like the strangles, is most incident to young horses, and usually proceeds from the same causes, such as catching cold, being over-heated, or over-worked, about the time of shedding their teeth.
