Hippogryph by Geomancing Hippogryph by Geomancing
Hippogryph: part horse, part lion, part eagle. First described in a poem in the 16th century, it was said to have been born from the union of a mare and a gryphon. Commonly depicted in medieval heraldry, it is symbolized to represent love, as gryphons and horses were mortal enemies.

Keep in mind that one of the natural dangers of Equestria is a flying snake-chicken who can turn you to stone with a look. Biology and genetics there are weird.

Hopefully we'll see griffons featured more prominently in future episodes, so we can get a better grasp of what they are like culturally. So far we've only seen them portrayed as a jerk, a baker, and some athletes.

Actually the hippogriff does not have lion parts, only horse(back) and eagle(front). Even the poems you mention only talks of eagle and horse parts. Still adorable and I honestly would love to see Hippogriffs with lion parts and would love to see more in the ponyverse. Adorable display of love!
