Horse is an animal almost extinct on the Continent, probably following a ritual slaughter several centuries ago. It can still be found as a draft animal only in Sodrovno-Voldachia and in remote regions. The Obscure horse seems to have an ancestor different than that of the Lighted World, and it may be a case of parallel evolution 1).

In the children story Les Chevaux de Lune it becomes known that these horses live on the Moon.
