close up drawing of one of the pterahippus.  Sorry, I'm a zoologist, I have to give it a latin name.  Pterahippus means winged horse, I was trying to create something that looked a bit more primal than the typical winged horse.  So they're built more like a mongolian wild horse than the typical thoroughbred pegasus.  Also while most horses evolved to have only a single toe, the pterahippus are three toed to give them a better grip on cliff surfaces, more like a mountaingoat than a horse.
