* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': ** Horses exist, but they can only be found in one secluded corner of the continent, making them extremely valuable everywhere else. Nobles use them for travel and cavalry charges, but one of the most important parts of warfare is getting the horses out of the way immediately after their charge, because they're too valuable to leave in danger. The standard beast of burden is the chull, a placid giant crustacean with a rock-like shell that can be carved into a seat. They are slow and stupid, so many characters find horses far too intelligent and dangerous to bother riding. ** Then there are the Ryshadium, bigger and stronger horses that may or may not be sentient in their own right. They are intelligent enough to choose their own riders and refuse to accept any other. They need very little care, since they mostly look after themselves, but they are more rare than [[SoulCuttingBlade Shardblades]] and [[PoweredArmor Shardplate]].

Evolution being what it is, alien worlds (or Earth time periods far removed from the present day) are bound to have different forms of animal life from our world. The people there, however, are usually [[HumanAliens just like us]], or [[RubberForeheadAliens close]], and would therefore develop and breed different livestock to fill the same needs. And one of the major needs is for animals to fill the niches that horses fill on Earth: basic transportation in areas where mechanical transport are impractical, unknown, or expensive; or prestige transportation in areas where mechanical transport is cheap and easy. Horse-replacements may also be used as draft animals.

Named for a pun in ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', although that was an actual horse that, as the name suggests, kept changing color randomly.
