what a hippogriff is...

A Hippogriff is a mythological creature I've heard of once or twice ever. It's half horse and half griffin. This mash up makes an animal with head and front legs of an eagle and the back legs and rear rump of a horse. Back before science as we know it some folks thought they lived in the highest mountains of the far North which probably puts them in Lapland, the upper reaches of Scandinavia. They were said to love ice and snow so I imagine them up there frolicking in snowflakes under the aurora borealis.
