Excuse me.

Another, more recent and better source is, of course, the excellent new Glorantha book. This has an account which is consistent with all of the previous material, as one would expect given the talents of its author. This bit is from p.157:

        "The Grazers were once the Pure Horse People, a proud and aloof tribe that roamed the Pentan steppes. They went south seeking the prophesized Horse Queen that would heal their maimed steeds and return them to the Sky. They did not find her, but settled in Prax as allies of the EWF. Nearly four hundred years ago the Praxians almost destroyed them at the battle of Alavan Argay and the survivors fled to Dragon Pas. Instead of the haunts and the heroic deaths the Grazers expected, the land was nearly deserted -- all they found was peace. Ironhoof, the centaur Lord of the Pass, ceremonially adopted them with a ritual of rebirth that renamed them the Grazers and gave grazing rights over the lowlands that were not reserved for the Beastmen."

Cheers, Nick
