"nay" is another (super formal) word for "no" and it is pronounced the same way as "neigh," which is the sound a horse makes. :)

Is this like saying "no" to a horse, or like answering the question "Is this beef"?

Both, but for the latter, you are more likely to say "at eti." (horses are normally not eaten in Turkey!) It could also be like "Is it the cow?" "No, the horse"

But it wouldn't be used to say "(There is) no horse," right?

Would that be "hiç at yok"?

I was very curious what would happen if I filled in 'throw' for the word 'at'. Because in Turkish it also means 'throw'. Like throwing something trough the air. But it is a course about animals, so it was not correct.

Clever thinking! I also thought about it but of course, I realized too. But I still think it should be acceptable, haha.

Maybe it could only mean throw if it had an exclamation mark?

It is the exact opposite. It is a turkish work. Horse in ancient greek would be "ἵππος" which is supposed to come from the sanskrit root h₁éḱwos. h₁oh₁ḱu means fast. In modern greek "άλογο" is used.

Proto-Indo-European, actually, not Sanskrit.

in Persian, we also call Turkish "At", as "Asb", "ἵππος" also sounds a little the same...

"no, it is a horse" also should be accepted.
