Personaly I think I would like to be paid a nifty sum of money If ever I am going to buy this horse.

Why not make this a "cursed" item by the way?
To me that seems a much more logical place for this posting. After all, it is very annoying to own this horse, but it does not realy seem like a myth or a legend, nor does it seem like the stuff legends are made from.

Yours,

Ylorea

Well, actually this does seem to be able to be used for a myth or legend easily. Travellers from all over the world can flock to this horse, trying to see if they can "dispose" of it for a hefty sum of money as the prize.

Perhaps the reason this horse was made immortal was that so, as long as the wizzard still lived, the horse could not die. In order to destroy this animal, and stopp its incessant grazing of public farms, the wizzard himself must be disposed of.

Perhaps this can be used when a group is walking through a town that, while everything seems perfect, the people are all so skinny they seem barely able to move. The reason of course being the horse that eats all of their food!
Bow down to the almighty ruler of your pitiful existance!

Good luck there JT..I think she had a colt..I think I own it..the only hope is while it has it's dam's ungovernable appetite, it did not inherit her 'longevity'. Have been exiled with it from my land..<sigh> now it's a waiting game..I will have to outlive it, cause I can't sell him either.

The immortal horse that just pops back up alive again? Cool, endless supply of horse meat and hide.

Actually reminds me of a local event. An area farmer had a wild pony on his property and decided to have the animal put down because it was quite old, and seemed in bad shape.

The veterinarian administered a first, and a second dose of euthanasia solution, twice what was needed to kill the animal. It broke away from them and ran away. They expected it to die somewhere in the wild, food for the coyotes.

It returned six months later.

The farmer decided to take matters into his own hands and tried shooting the pony in the head. True to form, it ran away with a bleeding head wound. Several months later it returned, the head wound scarred, but healed.

The farmer tried to kill the pony with an ax, and once again the pony ran away, having gained another bloody head injury.

When the pony returned, the head injury was infected, swarming with maggots. The farmer for some reason remembered compassion and had the vet come out again. The wound was treated, and the pony has since lived there, no longer threatened by the farmer.

As far as I know, the pony is still alive.
