Tell me about your OC and/or give me credit for making the species. If you have your own winged-hoof species I will not be bothered, I imagine plenty of people have thought of it xD but I'd love to collect all the Lipizzan OCs here in a list! That way you can find others of your kind <:
I spent a lot of time going over mythological/fictional animals looking for a perfect winged-hoof animal. I didn't want to call it Hermes or something.... Along the way I ended up reading more about the Lipizzan/Lipizzaner horse breed. I feel like there isn't a better fitting creature, even if there are winged-leg animals.
Some extra information to go over:
•The quickest of the Lipizzans can run across water. They are exceptional however, most cannot.
•Repeating information: Lipizzans CAN be fat. And have the the same likelihood of being fat as any other pony type. It does not weigh them down, their fat is very buoyant.
•Annd again: Lipizzans do not like being pregnant because of the feeling of weight. They do not hate moms or pregnant ponies however. They just tend to avoid it in their own life.
•Not every Lipizzan likes being compared to cats. They don't praise cats any more than any other pony except for certain small towns of Lipizzans where the culture differs in many ways.

I know this post is about 6 years old, but I have a question regarding Open Species in general.
I plan on making my own species open to the public, but I'm not sure how to make a good reference sheet for my creatures, do you have any advice on making an open species?
It all depends on your species and what about it is important to YOU. Different species will need to highlight different things (like, I don't have to put the weight and height for this species, everyone knows how big they are. But if you made super tall tree ponies then you'd probably want to put the height!)
You don't have to put all your info on one sheet if you feel like you have a lot to say, and you don't have to draw a bunch of images if you don't want to either. Some people do it just as a html page on toyhouse, google docs, etc. Whatever is fun to you!
