Winged horses of the Spine
Spine 60 years Herbivore Unknown 2 meters at the withers Wings that hide under the skin Equine
The spine is home to some of the grandest marvels on Arethil, but none are as majestic as the winged horses that call this land their own.
AppearanceThe noble horses come in many colours ranging from various chestnut phenotypes to black. More rarely other colours like white, grey and palomino can be seen as well.
A more striking part of their appearance, however, are wings that grow out and hide back under their skin.
HabitatThese horses have been historically found throughout the Spine, but their range due ages of exploitation to serve as mounts of war left their numbers dwindling, reducing the once widespread species to only a few grand herds around Crobhear lake. 
They are generally predated by the mountainous subspecies of baaran lions, griffons, dragons and sometimes giants.

- Possess a dorsal slit on each side of their body.
- Tend to appear wingless for their wings are hidden under their skin most of the time and grow out of the dorsal slit when needed.

- These horses cannot fly forever, they tire just as normal horses do.
