There was a time when Navajo people were able to travel on rainbows, sun rays, lightning beams, and clouds. They were able to travel in the blink of an eye.
The Holy People began to question whether it was the right idea to give them such powerful processions. They believed they would misuse them eventually. So they took it all away from them. Instead, they gave them horses.
These horses weren't the horses we see today. They had wings on their front legs. The people flew places on them. However, the Holy People later realized that they shouldn't have such a powerful animal. So they took the wings off the horses.
To this day, you can the area where they once had wings. It's located on the inside of their front legs. This mark remained there for the horses protection.
