#AtoZChallenge: Unicorn

24 Apr

U

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes.  It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants.  🙂

 

Today is about one of my favorite creatures. It’s the Unicorn. They are known to have a horn located on their foreheads. They are talked about by greek writers of natural history. In European lore, they are depicted as a white horselike or goatlike creature with a large horn and cloven hooves. More information can be found here.

    Most people rather not think of it as a goat, although that’s usually how it’s portrayed.

      That’s interesting. Never thought of them as a goat. I guess that’s because books, tv, and movies portray them as horses with horns because horses a bit more majestic than goats.

    I’ve always had a soft spot for unicorns, they embody purity in a lot of stories 🙂

    I don’t use unicorns much in my games or books and that is too bad really. I should use them more often.

      I haven’t used them in any of my stuff either. I might just have to.

    I never heard the goat link. That actually makes more sense with goats having horns of various types and all.

      I hadn’t heard of it either. More research to be done. 🙂
