      So would it be safe to assume that a lot of words ending in -horn would also be neuter? Like, das Matterhorn, or et cetera? Danke in advance!

      Yes, i think it's always like this. I come from Germany and i don't know a -horn word which is not neuter. Because The word EINHORN has two parts: 1. EIN, 2. HORN and the article (der/ die/ das) goes always with the second part of this word, so with HORN and you say " ein schönes Horn " ( a beautiful horn). And the article definite if it's neuter, masculinum or femininum.

      If you didn't understood it you can ask me again! ;-) [German is difficult]

        Meine kleine Nichte liebt auch Einhörner. (My little niece loves unicorns as well.)

        Sie hat ein Einhorn für mich gemalt. (She made a picture of a unicorn for me.)
