Description (Initial Observations): A Mutated thornbush that is neither a horse nor a cactus. The Pinetos has a horizontal trunk and thick leg stalks giving it a equine appearance. This is increaed by way the pineto dips its roots to take in water by lowering its 'head' to drink. The compairson to a cacuts comes from the sharp thorns entirely covering the plant. These thorns make it impossible to ride without a saddle. A sharp prod must be jammed between trunk and the root ball. They are extremely valueable as mounts, and it is very difficult to catch them and then even harder to tame them. However those that are are considered excellent mounts.
