    The word horse in Estonian is HOBUNE. It’s similar to Finnish which may or may not be apparent to a non-speaker. Finnish and Estonian are closely related languages, called the Fenno-Ugric group which include Hungarian and Saami (Lapp). There you are! The pronunciation in phonetic so you would say 
    HO – bu – neh.
