Rhiannon's White Horse?

Post by Zylah » 28 Feb 2010, 21:07

I hope I'm posting this in the right place ... I canNOT seem to find a name for Rhiannon's white horse anywhere I look. I wondered if someone could point me in the right direction, or knows it offhand?

There is no name for her horse. But then again she herself is the horse in many ways, and she / the horse is also the moon, if we read the riddle correctly in the First Branch.
