News: Horde get Brewfest Kodo, Alliance gets Ram

According to a blue post today, Alliance players will not be getting the Brewfest Kodo as expected. The Alliance will get the Brewfest Ram that was given away last year. I just don't understand this move. The Horde was given the chance to get the Brewfest Ram last year, a dwarf racial item, with little or no effort. Now Blizzard is 'fixing' there problem by giving the Horde something else.

Now I don't want to get off on a rant here*, but it just seems spiteful to me. I don't see what the problem would be in having a Kodo on the Alliance side. There doesn't seem to be any issue with the Horde having Rams.... and while we are on the subject of mounts, why can you only ride certain mounts. Shouldn't Asher be able to run up on a dang Zhervra, or Wolf or whatever and ride it wherever I go! I paid 5,000 gold for my epic training, I should be able to ride NPC's, dangit! Can't you just see Dorabel riding high on her epic Thrall mount.
