    Looking at the legs of the boy and the horse, I would say this is Synchronized Dressage;
    a long-discontinued Olympic event.

  3. Tom Noir Says:

    Oh my god, that horse has a man growing out of his back.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Why does that child have a gaping void in place of a left eyeball?

    Rider of Rohan! What news from the City Of People Who Live In Giant Benippled Lemons?

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: The latest news from Valdemar: A WARMHEARTED ELF MOLTS VENTS.

    Young Baryshnikov discovers himself as he fleas the oppression of his Latvian home.
    “Leap, my boy! Leap like you’ve never leapt before!”

  8. B.Chiclitz Says:

    Odd that the only creature showing any expression is the owl. Not even the horse seems interested in the drama going on behind his head.

  9. B.Chiclitz Says:

    By the way, I doubt that owl could fly, with those stubby wings.

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: who says it is flying? I wager you’d have that expression too if you fell off someone’s shoulder.

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    The horse and the boy (or girl – it looks like a young Petula Clark) are posed as if leaping over something that isn’t there. Perhaps the wizards who live in the village of giant butternut squashes have ensorceled them.

  12. B.Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—yeah, like “Hey—wha’ happened?”

  13. MisterBob Says:

    I’m pretty sure,that the owl is a stick on sticker from the
    Guardian’s world of wildlife series !

    Like a streak of lightning flashing ‘cross the sky
    Like the swiftest arrow whizzin’ from a bow
    Like a mighty cannonball he seems to fly
    You’ll hear about him everywhere you go
    Jumping Genghis Khan that way, you know the name of
    Champion the Wonder Horse! Champion the Wonder Hooooooorse!

  15. Anna T. Says:

    I know she’s married to the man, but perhaps Ms. Lackey should stop having Mr. Dixon do all of her covers? Because sometimes they’re like this.

    “This is Owlflight Round-Up with the latest news from Valdemar…

    “Villagers have reported that a boy named Nils was abducted this morning by a very strange man on horseback. The perpetrator wore a helmet and, reportedly, his legs were paper thin…”

    Spoilers for the sequel, OWLLANDING.
