Nice - although it's not "prancing" but rather a lion rampant in heraldic terminology. It's also on the Royal banner of Scotland and, as schoolkids, we used to have little flags with them on for the gala.

appy days although it must be borne in mind that the origins of galas is from "gallows days" when folks could enjoy a good hanging....

Watch as this beautiful horse prances around the ring. He's pretty, and he KNOWS it!

The lion rampant was also the sign of Richard The Lionheart but I'm not sure if he was pretty (or if he knew it).

Basically lions are courageous but prancing indicates showing off. The modern urban meaning is best ignored... ;D
