Welcome to the Registry for the new breed Orb Trotters! They're a very unique breed that only come in four body types: Pony, Arabian, Thoroughbred, And Clydesdale Draft. When born, they have very bright coats that dull/lighten down as they get older, but it is considered a slow change since they aren't sexually mature until 10 years old, and they live for eternity... Well, as long as they keep their original souls, that is!
You see, when
Year-Long Mission IdeaWelcome back everyone!Year-Long Mission Idea2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, okay not so recently, the second breed owner made it official that she's kinda going to be absent from dA and from the breed and that *allisondellue has full control until she makes a return. So originally, before this official announcement, Allison (me) had planned a small mission before the school year, but now I decided I might want to do something a little crazy!
I want to do a yearlong mission with the Orb Trotters. This long mission will (hopefully) take a whole 12 months to complete and will have TONS of mini missions that need art or stories to complete them. These mini missions can allow each horse to get a max of up to 300 Soul Value just for completing them. That guarantees a horse being bumped up a rank. Some mini missions will have soul value requirement, preventing horses and foals that are too weak from being involved. The soul value reward for all

Ballator tack-Clips-Ballator tack3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Clipping manes is required for riding competitions. This is because the manes rubbing against the horse due to the saddle or girth is very uncomfortable and can cause permanent damage to the mane.
Shoulder manes must be clipped only just enough, so the saddle sits just behind the clip.
Belly manes can be fully clipped, but chest manes on stallions must remain.
Back manes are clipped in the same way as shoulder manes.
Bridles are custom made for each EB due to the variety of horns, but in general they look just like regular bridles, with a little thicker noseband. In some cases, bridles attach directly to the horns if they are too complex or cumbersome to fit around.
EB's are very versetile and can compete in english and western activities. Saddles are just like normal saddles, but a thick pad must be used.
Taking some requests!Alright, so im SUPER bored, and I figured i'd practice my art style |DTaking some requests!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Anyways, it's not going to be first come first served, its going to be a pick and choose thing. I'll choose which ones im going to do, most of the art will probably be full body, however I might do a headshot if I feel I can't do it full body. vuv You can as a max of 2 characters per picture, and a max of 2 requests. So that means you could ask for 2 characters in a request, then another request with one character.
If you want to possibly get a request, please post a ref of your character. I don't need hex codes, as I have my own thing where I can retrieve them. :3
Please keep in mind im ONLY drawing Animals/animal creatures, and possibly anthros/furries. unu

Genetics/Coloration/Genotype HelpSince Equus Ballators are a realistically-colored breed, genetics do play a valuable role in determining the outcome color of the foal.Genetics/Coloration/Genotype Help6 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you want to know what color your Ballator is, I will determine it for you! Note me, =Fargonon
Note that almost all EB's are Tobiano, overo, sabino, or have some other white patern.
The more solid, the rarer. Also the more dark/light.
If you want to determine the rarity of a foal, also note me.
If breeding two ballators and you want a realistic and accurate outcome, go here. NOTE: You must know BOTH parent's color names and genes. I can help you!
The foal DOES NOT EXIST, until it has been registered in this group and drawn by its owner.
Havin any other trouble? Note me!

Twisted Rose KennelsThe white kennel glistened just beyond the glowing barn area. The sounds of barking and baying greets you as you near, growing louder and louder with each passing moment. The bright red doors push open easily, and the sounds inside grow substantially as sunlight brightens their surroundings. Each pen has a door in the back, lifted for freedom to roam in and out of their individual kennels. Shiny silvery bowls rest in each kennel, the water bowls filled and the food recently emptied.Twisted Rose Kennels6 months ago in Personal More Like This
A great furry beast pads toward you in a surprisingly soft manner, her big brown eyes blinking innocently at you as she sniffs every aspect she can reach. Tail swaying slowly behind her, the Saint Bernard turns away and waddles back to her plushy bed, content at your arrival. A light laugh reaches your ears, and a slim brunette with sparkling green eyes steps out of the storage room in the back, dusting off her hands with a wide smile.
"Welcome," she greets warmly. "I am Tristan; now how may I help you??

quick Art trade (UPDATED)Guy you are forgetting to tell me which type of trade you'd like, full body or waist upquick Art trade (UPDATED)8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Anyone want to do an art trade? The last person that I was trading with could not finish their half due to lost files so we decided and both agreed to put off the trade. So, I'd like to take on a few trades.
1) Link me to character/s but not your entire gallery
2) Not sure if I want to pick anyone yet, I am hoping this will lighten up my mood.
3) You post your half first. I will have mine done within the week, but will not show you any wip or the finished drawing until I see a finished half from you.
5) I need a coloured digital reference
4) Don't bother commenting if you don't plan to get your art trade done between the 30th- 7th. That is why I placed "quick" in the title. I'd like art from you as quickly as you want it from me.
5) We draw something that is to equal value- I'll be willing to create a full body anthro or feral. I'd expect a full body in either anthro or feral form.
