Warhorses Trained by Donwenna
Greetings to all from Tsuruko,
    News has reached me that our Lancer HL Donwenna Beasthealer just won The Shire of Shittemwoode's A&S championship!  WOO HOO!!!  :)  (Sorry, I'm just a little bit happy about this).
   She did not enter an equestrian tourney as most would expect, but rather, presented her horses as a Functional Science: The Trained Warhorse.  This was a real stretch for the judges who had never judged something like this before at an A&S competition.  She will have her documentation up on her website later on.
       Not only has she done Dragon's Laire proud, this is a huge step forward for the Equestrian Arts in An Tir as well.  Remember, it wasn't all that long ago that archery and rapier were struggling for "legitimacy" just as Equestrian is doing now.

Venus now eclipses the Moon with her splendor!
After the Moon, Venus is the brightest celestial body visible in the night sky;
but, now one also called Venus eclipses the beauty of the Moon
as she races thru starry fields!
Clouds now braided like ribbons thru her mane.
