- A group traveling on horseback at a leisurely pace can travel ten leagues by road in a day.
Horses, mules, and donkeys are generally domesticated herbivores. Hoofed beasts, they are adapted to fast, fluid running (their hoof is actually an extended third toe). They live in herds (in the wild) and migrate between grasslands, depending on the changes in supply and weather.
Donkeys are wonderful climbers. Tough and ornery, they live and travel in loose-knit troops rather than herds. Donkeys are difficult to work with and prefer to be active in the dark hours.
Many folk prefer to use mules, the offspring of a mare (female horse) and a male donkey, for they are larger than donkeys and more rugged than typical horses.
Domesticated horses come in many varieties. Ponies are exceptionally rugged and often shaggy-haired creatures, wellsuited to difficult climes. Plow horses and warhorses are huge breeds which are adapted to heavy work and cavalry warfare, respectively. Bred for short sprints, quarterhorses are light, delicate and swift. All of them can be mixed breeds or pure breeds.
