It is an inconsistancy, I never meant to imply otherwise; I meant that I don't think it was a "mistake," as in I don't think JKR overlooked it.

Well, not a mistake with the books viewed as individuals, but a mistake with the books viewed as a whole?

Perhaps a deliberate mistake rather than an accidental one, is a better way of putting it.

Well, the patch up is the best possible. Not planning ahead for it, might be a mistake. Anyway, we're arguing about words now so I'll try to stop...

Oh, whereas I think it was actually a mistake, or at least, when JKR was writing the 4th book I would guess she hadn't invented thestrals yet, and so didn't realise that she was setting herself up for an inconsistancy. So she knew when she was writing the 5th book that it didn't quite fit, but by that point it was the best she could do?
