So, Nick, is this about how Genghis Khan kept communication going in his vast empire by edicting that when a rider was transporting info all Mongols were charged with providing assistance?

Yes, Mr. Pierce, it is.

Okay. But why is the pony ragged eared?

When a rider ran out of grub and his pony was still able to run the rider would chew on the ear to get blood flowing thereby gaining some sustenance to stay in the saddle, Mr. Pierce.

Thanks, Nick.

Anytime, Pierce.
