Nightmare is a Mob Infusion added by the Thaumic Horizons mod. It can be applied to Endersteed. The resulting creature looks like a black Horse with orange eyes and hair. It can be tamed the same as a normal Horse, after which the player can ride it. This creature is immune to fire and Lava damage. It can travel on Lava as if it was a solid block. When it steppes on a Grass Block, this block will change into Dirt. This creature also emits lava particles. Right-clikcing this mob with Wheat heals it by 1 heart (2 health points).

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"Many thaumaturges scorn horses as beneath them - after all, they cannot fly, and any apprentice with Boots of the Traveler can outrun one. Your research into creature infusion will soon make these colleagues look rather foolish.

The equine body adapts surprisingly well to infusion with thaumaturgical gadgetry. You have managed to integrate the mechanics of a thaumostatic harness into a horse's hooves, creating a steed which is both faster than a mundane horse and capable of flight. The thaumostatic mechanisms are powered by the animal's stamina, so it does require rest upon landing.

Most creatures can scarcely tolerate an Enderheart infusion, but for unknown reasons a horse's body is much less likely to reject the alien organ. Based on this discovery you have developed a specialized version of the earlier infusion, resulting in an Endersteed.

Not only can this enchanted horse carry a rider as it makes dimensional leaps, but its teleportation is significantly more controlled. By pulling on the horse's reins you can induce it to blink short distances ahead, even through solid objects. This replaces your ability to control a normal horse's jumps.

Equine anatomy is unusual in one other way - when slain and reanimated, horses lack the aggressive instincts of other undead. Moreover, they are surprisingly trainable, recall any training they had in life, and can bear a rider as easily as their living counterparts.

A relatively simple infusion can create a skeletal or zombified horse. Skeletal horses are swifter than their living counterparts, while zombie horses are more durable."
