Additionally, the buff from this item causes your mount (any mount) to become much larger than normal, and slightly transparent. It gives a whole new look to the drakes, so even if you don't necessarily like your character looking like a gnome, the visual effect on the mount is worth it.

All gnomes have slightly larger mounts than other races, for no apparent or explained reason.Theories abound - the most popular being that it is compensation for being the worst race in all of Azeroth and the known planets.

IIRC the reason that gnome mounts are larger than other mounts is that originally gnomes were even smaller than they are now (this was possibly during alpha or beta). When they realised that they were actually *too* small, the devs just scaled them up - it was then easier for them to just autotmatically let the mounts scale up to reflect the new rider size than it was to repose the gnome on each of the "mount with gnome rider" models. Same thing happened with male Tauren I believe - although for them it wasn't so much "too small" as "not big enough yet".
