I've never really thought about these lyrics too much before, but in typing them out it now seems clear that though the song is about horses, it is from the perspective of sheep, presumably watching the horses.

Just had a listen, this seems right to me - almost positive it's "crowds" in the first line too.

It IS "crowds", that's what all the lyrics on the internet say as far as I know, and plus it does sound like "crowds" too, so there's nothing to be mistaken about. Mystery solved.

On MSPedia it says "hopes and ??? were never raised". Either of these two statements can be true, but if I had to fill the blank in the second one I'd say "dreams" --> "hopes and dreams were never raised".
