Ah, more ABC! :o) I really love this and the monochrome memes...
I couldn't think of any deity for this week other than Epona. What a lovely Goddess!
She's the Celtic Goddess who protects horses, mules and monkeys. She's also a goddess of fertility, and is usually represented with a cornucopy, with keys in her hand, or on horseback, very much like Rhiannon (another dear Goddess to me). She is the only Celtic deity accepted with no changes in ancient Rome for her protective love for horses and thus, Rome's cavalry.
There's not much information about her, but it's said she was born of a man and a mare, who gave birth to her only daughter, the beautiful Epona, who became the Queen of Horses and dreams.
I love all animals, and horses, with their wild power and strenght, are a wonderful gift of Nature. Someone said, "There's something about the outside of a horse that's good for the inside of a man". Alas, I'm a horrible rider...
