(Greek Creature) ARION

Horsey son of Poseidon and Demeter.

Demeter, trying to flee from the advances of Poseidon, turned herself into a mare and hid amongst King Onkios' horses. The problem is, Poseidon created the first horse so she stood out like a sore thumb amongst the riff-raff. Her backside was flashing like a 'come and get it' beacon to the sea God in Stallion form and he didn't need a second misinterpreted invitation.

Long story short, the old sea dog got his own way and his already lengthy list of children was bolstered by another two - Despoena the Nymph and Arion the black maned horse with a handicap.

I have no idea if blacksmiths are dreamers but i'm sure if they were asked to write a list of their worst nightmares a horse with human hands would be pretty close to the top.. especially one that could talk too.
