Sigh. Yes, I forgot all about them. And also the donkey in "Cart and
Cwidder", who is such a lovely character, and reminds me very much of a
donkey I knew when I was little.

One thing this thread has reminded me is how I love the way Diana manages to
gently poke fun at the kinds of series books girls love when they are
growing up, while acknowledging how much they do love them. I am thinking of
the book that made Janet and Julia beg for a pony, as well as the Millie
books that the Godess loved so much, and the books Angelica loves to read in
"Magicians of Caprona"... other examples?

Oh, of course! Yes, there are plenty of horses in the Quartet :-)
