He is based on the traditional Chinese horse models. He is white with grey dapples, mane, and short tail. He is always seen with a saddle and bridle.
A very loyal horse that tends to get scared easily. In the first movie he is afraid of a loud sound from the burnt village and dissapears during the avalanche. In the sequal, he is scared of being grabbed unexpectantly, a kiss from Yao, and dissapears once again for some time. Besides that, he is usually a calm, quiet horse and is very tamed.
He doesn't have a given name in the movie.
He has dapples that are actually a "hidden mickey."
