New concept for my Plains elves?

ElfTanner

This is an idea I came up with the other night while watching The Hobbit. I have never seen elves paired with Rabbits before. Tell me what you think.

This is Herdpacer - He is the chief of the Plains elves, the Trail Makers. I was thinking of having them fallow herds of horses that they would use for meat, skins, etc and they would ride the rabbits... just an idea...

Initial thought: Great elf ... surprising bondbeast Wink

Second thought: They would need some sort of tether/harness ... considered how rabbits move!


Okay, seriously - Maras are rodents and they are plains dwellers. I CAN imagine a species of hares taking the place of big plains aninmals. Maybe not exactly with the same motion sequence than our hares when they are supposed to be ridden by elves.

I was considering a harness. I've actually seen some old ads of cowboys riding jack rabbits in Texas and they had saddles and harness'. I may barrow the design.

When I heard about Radagast's giant jack rabbit pulled sleigh I thought "no way", but they pulled it off, so why not. Cool concept. I like that it does not really look like a rabbit, but more like a hare, which is a bad-ass of an animal!
