Fairy mounts

So I heard that in welsh legend, fairies ride corgis. Has anyone seen this?

I have not, but seeing as fairies were believed to once be viewed as being or similiar to one’s ancestors, I wonder if the legend was born by the tale of a great chief who loved the breed that was stretched until we get the legend we do today.

I think that is more modern legend since the Fey are not all small in stature. And the further back you go the more they are of human height.

This is probably the kind of tale like my great-grandfather telling all the city folk that came to our village that he saw a deer-rabbit in the woods. :smile:

If u keep two creatures in a same room long enough, one is bound to Ride the other. Irrespective of gender or race.

I’ve not heard of that but I heard of fey riding horses in things called raids.
