    If so, Melody should be impressed, given Horace’s mental state when he composed it—or maybe he was trying to distract her from the fact that he broke one of her coffee mugs… :-)

    Omega Dragotroid and AppleRox2013, thank you for the explanation and illustration of the Advent Calendar!

    Two things:

    1 What is an Advent Calendar? I have never heard that term before. (Many thanks in advance!)

    2 Phoebe will need to get Marigold a copy of Disney’s “Fantasia” for Christmas, as it features not only a few unicorns, but even a donkey unicorn (Jacchus, who was ridden by Bacchus, the god of wine and mirth). :-)

    You too, eh? The little grasshoppers never bothered me, but the 3" long (and larger) yellow & red Lubber grasshoppers in south Florida were a very different (shudder) story… :-(

    Yes…and he (Mister Ed) once dreamed that he was a doctor (his ‘shingle’ read: “Dr. Ed: Ears, Eyes, Nose, and Tail!”).

    It’s strange that Horace’s “Horse, M.D.” fantasies always involve him being a physician, while his proclivity for joining support groups of all kinds suggests that he might make a good psychologist…

    “Celebrate all achievements with a joyful noise, whether they be great or small!”

    Indeed—I was thinking of, as the next best thing, a unicorn room or lawn ornament. They could be available in several versions, to depict the various Houses of unicorns (Arwehari, Nimbi, Karkadam, Nhurim, Nabrima, Tayana, etc.). The LED-illuminated alicorn could dim on, say, a ten- or twelve-day schedule, “counting down” to the Winter Solstice (unicorns’ powers are at their lowest in winter); at that point, the alicorn would gradually brighten, to signify the coming of more daylight—and magical power.

    I heartily agree regarding sixam, Kra’ul Sheykhon. This unicorn name generator (see: http://unicorn.namegeneratorfun.com/ ) will produce—in keeping with unicorn character—a delightful, magical name for Dana (or anyone, for that matter).

    Some horses have passed the mirror test as well. Also (going back at least a few decades), some highly-strung race horses, particularly fillies and mares, have been calmed by having mirrors placed in their stalls, which calmed them down because they were so busy primping and admiring themselves.
