When I was drawing this unicorn I came up with a short story about him. Here are original text and translation.
I used google translator (what a shame!) with some corrections, because in other way it will take too much time. I'm so sorry for grammar Stare 

Free horshoe divider by Daenzar

One narcissistic grey horse really wanted to be a unicorn. He suffered, did not eat, did not sleep, did not know the rest. He left to indulge in depression away from their compatriots, unable to endure their stupidity and foolishness. He thought of himself as special and worthy of more.

One winter, he wandered into the woods farther than usual, and found in the middle of snowdrifts an old witch. With unknown intentions she collected snow in a bag full of holes. Crazy woman promised a wonderful magical horn in exchange for half of the remaining years of horse's life.

The deal seemed awkward to a horse. He does not know how many years he has to live, and the half is quite a lot. Looking around, he accidentally saw a bush of a mountain ash. The horse had heard before that this plant protects from the dark magic, curses and evil spirits. So, he decided that he could outwit the witch.

The exchange took place, and since then the newly-born unicorn was carrying a branch with rowan berries everywhere. He thought that witches spells are not dangerous for him.

Upon returning home, he met trouble. Seeing the beautiful glass horn, unicorn's tribesmen expelled him from the herd.
"Go to hell" - he thought, and went in search of a new home away from them.

The horn shone brightly and reflect the rays of the sun so that the shine came through the bushes and was visible from afar. Strange light frightened wolves and other predators, and for some time the journey was calm. The unicorn carelessly went ahead.

Soon he came to a place, inhabited by people. One poacher was interested by a horn gloss, and he quickly found the source of radiance. The man stared at the horn and figured some good rewards which he can receive for such a wonderful trophy.

An arrow hit the heart, then the hunter cut the victim's throat. Break off the magical horn did not work out, so that the carcass was cast in the snow to freeze.

The unicorn left lying with a clamped between his teeth branch of mountain ash.


PS .: In fact, he came to life the next day, but he was too lazy to get up so that he slept, waiting for the spring. Well, who needs this slush?



(Original in russian)

Один немного самовлюбленный, но закомплексованный серый конь очень хотел стать единорогом. Страдал, не ел, не спал, покоя не знал. Уходил предаваться депрессии подальше от своих соплеменников, не вынося их приземленности и ограниченности. Он считал себя особенным и достойным большего.

Как-то зимой он забрел в лес дальше, чем обычно, и нашел посреди сугробов старую ведьму. С неизвестными намерениями она собирала снег в дырявый мешок. Выслушав жалобы коня, безумная женщина пообещала прекрасный волшебный рог в обмен на половину из оставшихся лет его жизни.

Сделка казалась невыгодной и конь задумался. Все-таки он не знает, сколько ему осталось жить, а половина это довольно много. Осмотревшись, он случайно заметил куст рябины. Конь слышал, что это растение хорошо защищает от темного колдовства, проклятий и злых духов. Некоторые говорят даже, что она отпугивает саму смерть. Немного подумав, конь решил, что сможет обхитрить ведьму.

Обмен состоялся, и с тех пор новоявленный единорог таскал с собой повсюду ветку рябины, уверенный, что чары ведьмы для него не опасны. Снегири смотрели на него с неприкрытым недоумением.

По возвращении домой ждали неприятности. Увидев красивый стеклянный рог, соплеменники выгнали единорога из табуна вовсе. Они терпели его надменность и отстраненность, но к такому были не готовы.
«Идите к черту», – подумал тот и отправился искать себе новый дом подальше от них.

Рог ярко сверкал и отражал лучи солнца так, что блеск пробивался сквозь заросли и был виден издалека. Странный свет отпугивал волков и прочих хищников, и какое-то время путешествие было спокойным. Единорог беззаботно шел вперед.

Вскоре он оказался на земле, где обитали люди. Блеск его рога заинтересовал бродившего неподалеку браконьера и тот быстро нашел источник сияния. Человек всмотрелся в рог и прикинул, какое хорошее вознаграждение получит за такой чудный трофей.

Стрела поразила сердце, после чего охотник перерезал жертве горло. Отломать колдовской рог не получилось, так что туша была брошена мерзнуть в снегу.

Единорог так и остался лежать с веткой рябины, зажатой в зубах.

П.С.: На самом деле он ожил на следующий день, но ему было так лень вставать, что он все проспал, дожидаясь наступления весны. Ну, кому эта слякоть нужна?
