In 1980, the pictured weirdlord, Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, and his lady wife Morning Glory, used the study published by a Dr. Franklin Dove in the 1930s on the same subject, surgically merged the horn buds of angora goat kids to form one single horn in the middle of the forehead, a process Zell-Ravnheart patented under the name “unicornization”. This was in Eugene, Oregon, of course.
He even claimed the horn surgery affected the physiology and personalities of the goats themselves:
That was the most amazing thing to us—to discover how much the mythic qualities attributed to unicorns were in fact a result of the process itself. The actual shape of the skull was so radically different—especially the brain case. The frontal lobes were significantly larger, for instance. But the medial horn also seemed to have affected the pineal and pituitary glands as well. Everything about our animals was just…different. Many people could not even recognize them as being goats at all! And of course, that was perfectly reasonable. They were Unicorns. And they knew it! They were amazingly charismatic!
In 2004, Oberon founded the online Grey School of Wizardry The Grey School currently offers over 300 classes in 16 Departments, at seven levels, with more than 750 students aged 11-75. The faculty number 40 highly-qualified teachers. Graduates are certified “Journeyman Wizards.” Oberon is the school’s Headmaster, and has been called “The real Albus Dumbledore.”
Oberon and Morning Glory currently reside in Sonoma County, California, of course.
