"Horses have been used for transportation for hundreds or even thousands of years. They are reliable and reasonably easy to maintain. The idea of using other beasts for the same purpose is interesting. House Vadalis is well known for mage bred horses. Consider what someone would pay for a mage bred animal that was faster, hardier, could travel farther without rest, could carry more weight, and perhaps be used in combat as well? I myself would consider buying a beast that could travel farther and faster than a standard horse per day. Do you, perchance, ever dabble with mage breeding other creatures or beasts? I ask out of mere curiosity. "
