    Feline buck

    Would you believe some people think the chalk beast at Uffington is a white horse ? They claim it's just stylised art to have horns and beard and thick fetlocks on the hind legs. A quick look at the Beaufort yale at Windsor shows a goat front body on a lion hindquarters. A horned lion. They had one in Etruscan style, north Italy at 600 BC. A Chimera , which Bellerophon stalked on Pegasus his trained flying chimera-hound ...... er, horse around 700 BC. They had lions in Greece then so people knew what they were talking about at the Mycenae lion-gate. Ibex in the Alps were no joke either.

    yes palmer, your icon is a bit horsey but who would say its shape must be a horse? An ibex-headed lion was probably the most dangerous beast the ancients could invent. Henry VII had it to win his battle.

    There's one close to home. James I was gifted his unicorn by Jane Beaufort. It's an antelope with lion tail. A horse it never was. The swivelling horns allowed the rear horn to replace one damaged in battle. The Uffington beast still carries 2 horns probably due to the rear lion legs getting more rubber on the road.
