[ANSTHRLD] Question on a Device

Actually my name is already registered within the SCA, in the Kingdom of 
Atlantia, my previous kingdom.  I do still have the letter that the Golden 
Dolphin Herald sent to me via snail mail notifying me of it in case I needed 
it here for some reason.

As for the device, what if the line dividing it in half were to be 'rayonny' 
instead of a straight line?  Would that be permissible and not conflict?  
How would something like that be worded or blazoned? Would the horse be able 
to bear perhaps the device of my household and if so how would something 
like that be blazoned?  Sorry for appearing to be such a noob about this.

In Service to the Dream,
Muriel filia Donaldi de Skia

You know the person sitting next to you in the theater is in the SCA when 
they start picking apart the medieval movies and saying, "That's not period! 
  Hey wait --- They didn't have those back then!"
