In the original race book, they got a whole sentence. Unacceptable!
Not all ponies were content to run across the land. One tribe dove into the sea, finding it full of food and succor from land based predators. Though these tribes often built towns at the edge of the water, they were most happy when slicing through the waves rather than on their dry streets. While the sea was rich in food and some valuables, such as pearls and coral, they lacked in metals. This drove the sea horses to adopt trading early. They learned to build grand ships to ferry their goods, or other, less swimming abled, tribes, from place to place.
There are stories amongst the sea horses that a small number of their people forgot to come back to land at all, and now call the oceans their home. Such ponies are dangerous and wild. They have forgotten their kinship to all other tribes, and should be avoided. It became a common prayer before a journey for sea horses to hope against the appearance of such ocean breeds, for they revel in the destruction of sea horse ships.
After the empire declined, the line of the already uncommon sea horse became increasingly diluted, until the only sighting of them came in the sudden birth of one in an unrelated family. A pairing of land tribes, had a chance of conceiving a sea horse due to long forgotten ancestry shared with the lost tribe. While some sea horses dream of rekindling their kind, most think it is very unlikely.
