365 Project, Day 115

Ginnimunk Foal

These amazing creatures are small rodent-like horses.... or horse-like rodents.  They're about the size of a great dane. Running in large herds of up to 100 animals, their movements, scientists have observed, are incredibly quick and fluid like. Their pale silver, almost reflective coats make it harder on predators when they all turn sharply and the sunlight glints off of them.

The ginnimunk make for exceptionally loyal pets, but are poor pack animals due to their size and stature. They were used as messenger animals prior to the advent of electronic communications.
