Re: Mount ideas for the vertically gifted
Wild Cohort is a good idea. You can pick up an Allosaurus (tough), Dire Tortoise (gets a surprise round, period), or Dragonhawk (flies) with it. Depending on your DM, you might be able to take Shared Fury, letting your mount rage with you.
Have a holly jolly Christmas (or whatever you might celebrate this season), and please forgive the occasional late post while I cook and eat way too much food and drink more than I usually do.
