Author's Note

This meta was somewhat mechanically inspired by the Bloomsday/Arbor Day meta from 2019, though it is much, much simpler. It took about two days to develop from conception to more or less its final form. The visual motif of horses is not particularly clueful for solving, but is just there to make you groan when you get the answer.
