If bears and cats can have a rune, why not horses? (Apart from the fact that one isn't supposed to have too many runes now)
In the Barbarian Belt, horses are strongly associated with the Fire rune-- in both the Solar pantheon and the Pentan/Grazelander tradition. It is part of their myth. A female Heortling horsewoman could worship Redalda, which would put her closer to the Earth rune, but as Redalda is Elmal's wife a Fire connection is still there.
Is it different in Ralios, where horses are associated with the Galanini (Horse Hsunchen)?

Do horses have their own rune?
I'm interested in Ulanin at the moment ( a possible HQII character) and was wondering if an Orlanthi could have a Horse related rune without being connected to Elmal and the Fire rune?
What would a typical Ulanin's runes be?
If I remember correctly Ulanin had a vaguely Horse shaped rune....
Any views, ideas etc on this Hero cult would be much appreciated.
