Abraxan horse

A breed of winged horse; the Abraxan is a gigantic, extremely powerful Palomino (FB).

Madame Maxime, headmistress of Beauxbatons, breeds them (OP20), and the winged horses that pull her flying carriage are Abraxans. They drink only single malt whisky and require "forceful handling" (GF15).

Commentary

Etymology

Name may come from Abraxas, one of the horses of Aurora, the goddess of Dawn, from Roman mythology.
