Bits: Functions and Proper Uses :DWhy? ...actually only bringing this up because it's been brought up a lot lately xDBits: Functions and Proper Uses :D3 years ago in Personal More Like This
While I will not argue on whether it is cruel to draw a harsh bit on a drawing, (because I believe that speaks for itself) I will take this moment to bore you to death with my knowledge of bits and their uses! Plus a bit of my own opinions on what I consider to be cruel. ^^
Alright! Let me just start out by saying I do not think that, with proper use, any bit is cruelty device.
The snaffle is the simplest and mildest of bits. It sports a single joint in the middle so that it has a little 'give' with pressure. The D ring, eggbutt, and full-cheek are the most common direct-pressure

Western Isles - Silverthorne Herd JournalSilverthorneWestern Isles - Silverthorne Herd Journal2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Logical, strategic, disciplined
Varies between light and heavy, with medium being most common.
Common/popular coat colours:
Chestnuts, palominos, duns. Golden coats (palomino and gold champagne) are likened to the sun and are said to bring good fortune!
Large, many pronged horns are common. Varies from thin to quite thick and heavy, though thinner is more common.
Description of the herd
Of the five kingdoms, Silverthorne has the most complex mythology. They worship 5 gods, of the sun, moon, river, sea and sky. They are also highly superstitious as a herd and have a few odd beliefs that have little to do with their religion. As a result, the number five is a sacred number within the herd, as it is considered perfect, with many of their traditions based around it. The King has 5 generals, and no stag may take more than 5 does for their harem during rut. Does may not have more than 5 fawns.
SKG Safir 1765, PwlPwl Art Raffle JUDGEDSo when I got home today at 2:30, I checked my messages and after changes have been made to correct any brought up errors - the tickets were finalized and put into the RNG hat. I want to thank everyone for participating in this - in total there were 63 tickets in the draw - 63 total kaaring points for Safir, thats amazing. I loved the art you guys put forward, the creativity put in is amazing.SKG Safir 1765, PwlPwl Art Raffle JUDGED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I announce the winner, I want to remind everyone to be gracious if you didn't win and not be a sore loser. If you're going to be hurt by the results of a random-judged art raffle with a total of 63 tickets, you may want to avoid art raffles in the future. I don't want anyone going off on my just because they had put in 50 tickets, or made 1 high-effort piece and expected me to make it the winner - in the end its RNGs judged, and a 1/1,000,000 shot still has a shot - so anything can happen. Remember - I told everyone that whoever helped me and working his kaaring would get something from me

FOR SALE: Saturday Affair 208 - WINNER!This was so hard to judge.. all those awesome bids! It was really close, but I had to choose one entry and I believe Affair will like his new home. I also put down the kaaring he gets for all the entries. ^^FOR SALE: Saturday Affair 208 - WINNER!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Partly effort based, but also how eye-catching the image is. So: full bodies win over headshots, images like for example Affair meeting his worst fear (rabbits) win over a simple 'halter' image.
Feel free to add my other Nordy NHS Aurora 135 in your image. This might increase your winning chance but it's not neccessary: it's all about how eye-catching it'll be; remember Aurora is a mare so they have to be seperated, for example Affair showing off in a pasture next to Aurora's. So drawing her doesn't mean winning. It's about the idea. Someone else can perfectly win without drawing Aurora but drawing Affair in some kind of situation that suits his personal

The Big Argument Taxidermy and Hunting To be edited, changed around, updated, etc.The Big Argument Taxidermy and Hunting10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Written from observation through controversy and points. If there is anything you think I should change or edit, note me.
This was written to educate and help others understand our views and points to this controversy.
It was not written to spark arguments but to be read and thought about.
The Big Argument
There has been controversy for a while now regarding animal welfare. Whether furs and taxidermy were acceptable or not and whether or not to should stand up against hunting. I want to put you in perspective of accepting both and why it is okay to.
While you may think you've done well keeping away from using animal products to help save the animals, you may not be all that is gold, many are in disguise.
Because it is recognizable in it's true form does not mean it doesn't exist anywhere else.
Unleash the BaconOnce upon a time, in December 2012, a not-so-little Tiggs joined a brand spanking new community called Fawnlings.

Roughly around December 2013, I got the amazing news that I'd accrued enough bacon for the group's highest award, a "divine blessing". Thoroughly flattered and a little bit dumbstruck, I sent little Nu off on her continued quest to cause chaos and destruction wherever she went and started plotting how she might use this reward in the most sparkly way possible.
By April 2014, with the help of a lot of friends, Nuala was ready to don her sparklepants.
After blinding a great deal of Oakferns (sorry about that little pygmies) and speeding on home to be reunited with her beau, Nuala's story arc was done with the grand collaborative finalé th
