over the centuries.
Horses on Poneren
are both faster and stronger than the horses of Earth, increasing these qualities by roughly 20%. In exchange for this increased ability, the horses do require both more food and rest than an Earth horse would need.
Rest effectively doesn't make a difference, as the sleep needed by Poneren
horses is still less than the normal 6-8 hours even magical humans
need. Food, however, is a noticable increase, requiring 20-25 pounds of hay per day, or roughly a 25-33% increase in nutritional requirement.
The horse has no known magical abilities. Rumors exist of unicorns and flying horses, but none have been recorded or discovered by magical researchers. It is suspected that these rumors are just dreams and memories of a time otherwise long forgotten.
