As a form of free-thought and exercise, every so often, i sit down to consider the implications of gender-swapped characters in my Strong Female Character blogs.

As we continue with Magical Mount Month, I’d like to take some time to talk about the most ‘mundane’ of horses in my favorite book series, the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (and completed by Brandon Sanderson).
