2024 marks the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Here are several idioms related to Loong, or Chinese Dragon. lóng mǎ jīng shén means "full of vigor" or as full of energy as a dragon horse.

Long Ma does not mean a dragon and a horse, but a legendary image of a dragon horse that has the head and the claws of a dragon, with its body covered with dragon scales. 

This term is frequently employed to convey heartfelt greetings. However, this idiom is often used in the Year of the Horse. After all, Longma is ultimately a horse.
