Freud never actually worked with little hans. instead he worked using the letters that little hans' father sent to him.
The first reports that little han's father made was when hans was three years old and he had developed an interest in his 'widdler' (his penis).
When Hans was almost 5 his father said 'He is afraid a horse will bite him in the street, and this fear seems somehow connected with his fear of a large penis.'
Hans said he was frightened that the horses would fall down and make noise with their feet.
In conclusion Freud believed the horse was a symbol for his father, and the black bits were a representation of a moustache. Later on the father recorded a conversation with Hans where he said 'Daddy don't trot away from me!
Hans also said he didn't like horses with black bits around the mouth.
Freud deduced that the boy was afraid that his father would castrate him for desiring his mother.
His first fantasy was that he had several children. When he was asked who their mother was he replied 'Why, mummy, and you're their Granddaddy'.
In the second fantasy, he imagined that a plumber had come and removed his bottom and widdler then gave him larger ones in return.
They can't prove that Little Hans theory provides support for the Oedipus complex because there are difficulties with this type of evidence.
When Hans was 19 he said to Freud that he didn't suffer any troubles and he couldn't remember the discussions with his father, and the case came to him as something unknown.
