scares the hell out of me
With luck it's gonna scare the hell out of my players too. Find many ready made chimera(aka animal-morphs, aka people with photoshop+too much time) at humandescent. Thanks to Timeshadows for the link. And Telecanter's Receding Rules for reinforcing my loathing/fear of horses.
Below, some delightful dogbirds. I think the Horillas are my favorite.
