Where did the "HOSS, by Gawd!" phrase come from, and what does it mean, exactly?

Jim Ross. He often refers to all big guys as HOSSES. Billy Gunn was also a hoss for some reason but it was usually Bradshaw.

JR has repeatedly called huge guys with little/no talent hosses (see Bradshaw's push) and "By Gawd" is his third or fourth big phrase.

He actually called Chris Benoit a "Hoss" once. When Benoit had his neck operated on shortly after the King of the Ring WWF Title match with Benoit vs. Austin vs. Jericho Jim Ross said Benoit is a hoss and he will definitely be missed. I remember being shocked that he called Benoit a "Hoss".

is anyone else annoyed at the overwhelming homosexuality implied in men calling other men "horses"? i mean, come on. they call them horses, they also call them thoroughbreds and stallions. HOW MUCH GAYER CAN YOU GET? i mean i'm definitely not trying to say there's anything wrong with jim ross being gay if indeed he is, but i doubt that's the impression he's trying to put over. it just seems very old-fashioned -- maybe at one time, you could call a guy a "stallion" and it would be a perfectly heterosexual compliment, but nowadays it seems kind of odd. does anyone agree with me?

Considering Bradshaw's locker room initiation procedures, Hoss does fit well under this description. However, that would make Jeff Hardy the lead Hoss.

The 1st time I remember him using that was in reference to the Undertaker during a match he had with Albert. It just went nuts from there. Michael Cole even tried to coin a similar phrase, calling Albert a moose once on Heat.
It was the same time they tried to build Taker as a submission expert. During an interview with Taker I read from that time, he actually said Albert was the next HHH (back when HHH was actually entertaining), but ironically enough, would not put him over in that mini-feud. They say things get better with age, so expect a MOTYC from the hoss and the moose.

Horse refers to "work horse" as in they keep working their asses off when there's work to be done regardless of their personal desires. I don't even want to know why you would view horses in a sexual light regardless of orientation.
