Adjective. Rare. Mid-16th century.
[French, feminine of chevalin, from CHEVAL.]
Or or pertaining to horses.
While I can't claim to have ever really got the magic of horses, I do grant that they must possess some indefinable allure, as people absolutely love their chevaline mystique. Oh, the word chevaline - that I do love. Or at the very least really, really like.
Do please leave any comments below.
Note: Due to being abroad, the original post originally consisted solely or the word, its definition, and the follow explanatory text:
Argh! The horror of dodgy Carpathian WiFi has struck again, so today you will have to be content with just the word - no picture, no rambling commentary, and no probing questions (my mobile data is too limited to allow for such luxury). Chevaline is a particularly lovely word though, is it not? Will it do? Just until I'm back into the land of unlimited, wondrous, luxuriant WiFi, at which point I will return to this word to complete it with all of the bells and whistles of my usual posts. I think it will.
PS: Transylvania is stunningly beautiful. Today I got lost in a graveyard, saw Vlad the Impaler's birthplace, and bought a drawing of tulips from a young Roma girl who had the most stunning eyes I've ever seen.
