At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

You hardly expect there to be many reports of flying horses, which at this date seem a complete impossibility.  However, in 1878 one was reported in West Virginia. A plowman saw quite a clearly outlined flying horse flying through the air.  Or, rather, his motion was rather like that of a swimmer.  He pointed te creature out to some other men who were scared by the apparition, but confirmed that they could discern it.  Was it a mirage?  Was it a nebular formation?  was it a bird, a plane or....a flying horse?

It is interesting to note that a flying horse was reported recently in Mexico.

I have doubts that a genuine flying horse would be physiologically impossible.  But who knows: I am not acquainted with the full gamut of physiological possibilities.  If one lands in your backyard, however, I wouldn't try to ride it.
