Certainly the hart is an elegant beast, and the word comes from Old Germanic via Old English, but so do many others - the hart’s companions hare, hawk and hound, for example. Did you mean that it is old even compared to other Old English words like these?

Are we once again in the presence of the recently departed?  Dave will know.

We are not to forget ‘hind’.
