2006-11-13 [Hedda]: Thanks, [Sue Falkenkralle]! ;)

2006-12-14 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I fixed a typo on this page in the unicorn description - the word intelligent was missing the "t". Also, I underlined the mythology headers for each section to make them stand out more. I hope this was okay for me to do. <img:stuff/sm-gif.gif>

I've also discovered some very nice art for horses:

2006-12-14 [Sue Falkenkralle]: nice, looks better :). I like the art. maybe we can put the links to elfwood under the creatures? oh, and I just saw that kelpie got a site too.

2006-12-14 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I just put the links under the creatures. :o) I just noticed the kelpie link also. I'll poke around a little tomorrow to see if I can find image links for the others.
