An enchanted horse from Russia. A king asked his sons to watch over his grave for the first three days after he had died. The first two sons ignored this advice and asked the third son to do this instead. While watching over the grave at the end of the third day after the king’s death, the king rose from his grave and gave his third son an enchanted horse. Later a Tsar of a nearby region wanted a handsome man to marry his beautiful daughter. The man with his magical horse climbed into his steed’s ear and was transformed into a handsome young man. He entered into a competition to capture the Tsar’s veil as proof of being a suitable husband for his daughter. He won this in his new form and the Tsar was impressed. The handsome youth left the town and turned back into his former self. The next day the Tsar gathered a search party to find this handsome man for his daughter but they could not find him. The tsar then held a dinner party and invited the whole town. At the party he could not see this handsome man. Then he saw a man holding his veil and realised that the handsome man was in fact this ordinary person and asked him to marry his daughter.

Did you find Silver Roan interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a beautiful, lovely illustration of the Friendly Silver Roan and send it to this website. Interested in more Russian legend? A great cartoon called Dobrynya Nikitich and Zemy Gorynych (2006) is a Russian children's animation with Dragons and other Russian mythical beings. But for those who love Vampires, lets not forget that Eastern Europe is their birth place. No film quite gives the Vampire spooks like Nosferatu (1922). However if you like it modern, Day Watch and Night Watch are interesting Vampire alternatives. Also the fantasy tabletop game Warhammer features an army called Vampire Counts which has been greatly inspired by Eastern European beliefs and culture.
