So foals can run the very soon after they’re born, but human babies can’t even walk until they’re at least, what is it, one, one and a half? My idea for this is that centaurs have their babies at least a month longer in their bellies, (10 months) and that the centaur foal is developed enough to at least hold their head up after a few days. Until then they are cradled by their parent.
It takes longer for them to walk (compared to regular foals), but after around a month they’re able to - very wobbly, but they manage, with some help.
So, the time in the belly they develop a lot, but once they’re out and and a few months after that, they slow down and get on with growing in human speed. Of course, their horse part grows slower than usual that way (a 1 year old horse resembles an 10 year old centaur).
Throwing my theories onto the fire asto the science of mythical horse-butted babies.
nO THIS WAS NOT an excuse to draw tiny chubbly-wubblum baby Clyde and lanky knobbly foal legs. NEVER.
FOR SCIENCE! Like gestating in the horse half would mostly remove the limitations of the human pelvis that restricts the size of a babies head so a foalby could be born mostly ready to go with just a small period of intensive care that human bebes require. Also adding unique behaviors while solving my personal problem with wtf centaurs do with their hands/arms when running. Obviously they wouldn’t do the tuck and run all the time but if you’re scared you don’t want extraneous limbs flapping about throwing your balance off if they weren’t necessary.
I saw some pinterest art about modern centaurs and now I can't stop thinking about assassin centaurs. Especially the Frye twins. Twins horses are so cute, I bet they'd be precious foals!
They would be adorable, though one of them might come out
weaker than the other. Whenever I think of that sort of situation, I always see
Jacob as the weaker twin needing more support and care from his father to grow
up stronger as his sister stole most of the nutrients in the womb. XD Just
imagine little foal Jacob trying to stand on his wobbly legs while his sister
is out frolicking right away.
I actually met her along with the rest of the Vändetta crew at Närcon last month! But me and my friend had the worst timing and caught them when they were really tired, and I felt soooo dang bad about it (still do augh).
We did apologze to them the next day, and they said it was fine, but I still feel really bad about it. QHQ;; … So I decided that I could atleast do some art for her of her lovely character Aerick (which i absolutely love ahh), along with another apology. Sorry orz;;
So yeah! Sorry, I can’t do horses, I tried but, I just— hnggg—..HRNGFF— *I gave up on animal anatomy and made up shit instead ahah fail*
… But have a cute little Chibi babu Aerick anyway <3
I would love to do more of them, but I don’t know where to start haha
