Zenyatta is so stunning.

I know this isn't the greatest, the lighting was terrible, it was dark outside and the lights they had weren't very good.

Sebestjen: "What was the point with that, throwing me off! It was just Killer!"
Bidziil: *Yeah... Killer...*

--------------------------

Hehe, I think that Killer laid in the grass when Sebbe and Bidziil passed by. And as the most cats do, he jumped right infront of Bidziils hooves :lmao: Poor Sebbe and Bidziil.

I am pleased with Sebbes pose, I didn't use any ref, so Im happy with it :giggle:

Rosendal is proud to announce that Mimiteh is pregnant again :la: We never noticed anything untill her belly started to grow and Bidziil is always close to her, protecting her. He has often been seen chasing away Contra from Mimiteh when he have comed up to great, but Siamsa and Terpsichorse are more than welcome to great the mare.

Mimiteh has only had one foal before, and that was Siamsa. I wonder what it will beome of this? :giggle:

Oh, what fun it is to ride

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Mimiteh thought it was heavy so Bidziil will help her pull the sleigh :giggle:

Want to join the ride in a one horse open sleigh? :giggle:
Just shout it out and Jump in! :la: Maybe if we are to many and the sleigh becomes to heavy, yet another horse will help Mim and Bidziil to pull it through the snow ;)

Shinto :dummy:
and Briganty ^^

i really have to draw once all palominos/flaxen chestnuts at RPS oO...they are so different xD

*******************************


Lyo competes with Eiskalt..
Shinto with Briganty.

the huge difference. NO Shinto doesnt wants to make fun of herself xD

This is Briganty's first competition....and she feels like....her mare has to do justice
to her Sire...Brisk Birgand and her Dam...Bacardi Sunset.
Its not just a "lets see how she will work out"- case.
Lyo is most of the time relaxed at Competitions, because he is the opinion him and his
Horse are doing their best and they cant do anythign else either.
Shinto tried to make everything best as she could too, but if she would fail with Briganty,
She'd just realize she couldnt make as good training with Briganty like the owners from her parents.
So she kinda had all the Swedish Warmblood owners on her mind who would think,
RPS can't handle Warmbloods at all XD

Event: 3 Day Event - Dressage by *RainbowFountains

Horse: RPS Becstelen Briganty (Swedish Warmblood)

The time has come for Wolferl to arrive with Hugh.

Wolferl was the snowmustang who arrived at last, and he was already doing reaally good.
Him and Hugh came for some Dressage training.
Sometimes he was all alone in the Arena but sometimes others where training too.
Like today :D
Cody and Mike joined Hugh and Wolferl too. While they where doing some warm up,
the Pony Lentilka joined with Haley too. The little Daughter from Lyo was just learning some
more serious horseriding. She was only riding bareback in the summer before.


Pirate: Cody! have a look at Hugh..he is sitting fantabulous on Wolferl and is giving the right commands!
Also your stirrups are too short, this time you're not flatracing ma' dear jockey.

Cody: but Daamon..why am i always doing Will's job....he should come back from his YFS-holiday
and ride his blondies.

Pirate: He is collecting experiences there Codiac, please focus on your seat! Daww
you're doing greaaat Haley x33 just dont let Lentilka making the round shorter..hm?!
Oh HUGH look at that wonderful collected trot :D amazing!

Cody: *le sigh*

I considered "breeding" her, having it fail and then letting you have the news, but a) technology is much better than that and mares can be tested for such a thing, and b) I am not that mean.

Anayehi is barren, folks. I've known since the twin birth that the runt of the pair would never reproduce.

Imagine my RNG-directed rage when it was the filly with no functional uterus that rolled talent in the nineties. :XD:

Anna may return to training; I haven't decided yet. :/ If she doesn't, she'll spend the next few seasons at least as a track pony.

Name: Anayehi (Part of the name of a Cherokee fire spirit)
Barn name: Anna
Gender: Mare
Breed: Thoroughbred
Height: 14.2hh
Color: Bay
Genotype: Ee AA
Markings: RH stocking with ermine spots; star
Temperament: Timid, gentle and unfailaingly friendly. Anna trails her twin around like a happy puppy, gleefully and goofily playing copycat to everything big sister does.
Discipline: Racing (retired), jumping prospect, eventing prospect
Bloodlines: Pipinoukhe x Incandesce

Shows and awards:
Rivervale Inaugural Show, Baby Class, 5th Place

I hadn't planned on having this breeding this season, but... to be honest? This season is suh-LOW. With a capital LOW. So I figured I'd just do it now, count on being superproductive when the holidays hit, and have their baby born first so I can whiz Covergirl back to =Hazel-rah. :XD: I may decide to magically time-freeze the foal in the future, because I have Plans for her.

It's a her. I know her name and genetics and just about everything already. I HAVE DRAWN HER. And she's adorable.

Shut up, this is my first Geist baby, what were you expecting? Nonchalance and logic?

"I have wandered all my life, and I have also traveled, the difference between the two being this: that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment."
--Hilaire Belloc


Previously on:



Frankie still hadn't decided whether June Jonassen made him more uneasy in her presence or in her absence. Ever since Eddie's startling revelation that she did, in fact, pose a threat to more than just Laurence's heart, he'd begun to notice her more: mannerisms he'd overlooked, calculating glances, curt commentary. Then, she'd vanished for days with barely a warning; she said she'd gone to visit family, but... maybe it was the paranoia that came with fresh knowledge of bad intentions, he kept telling himself, but the idea never stuck. And she'd returned looking so... satisfied. Accomplished? It was unnerving.

He glanced at her out of the corner of his eye as he pulled Brazen Fields' silks over his head. She had plastered herself to Laurence's side as usual, and the silk of her smile raised his hackles. And yet, when he looked at Laurence, the lopsided grin which used to be a trademark of such an interaction was conspicuously absent. He almost seemed to shrink away, to draw back, instead. The shift in body language was too acute for Frankie not to notice. For that matter, he thought, looking again at June, she could hardly be ignorant. So, she was holding on for some reason. Why? That he couldn't quite work it out was maddening.

Through the whole process of weighing in, Frankie had made eye contact with no one. He knew he was pounds over and Tom had already made a point of assuring officials that it was no object. Gratitude toward the old trainer--the kind of gratitude he'd often felt as an apprentice, when already grizzled Thomas Russell first put him on the backs of superstars--twisted in his gut. He'd really come full circle, hadn't he? He was only thirty-seven, but he'd had everything and now he was losing it. And what was it that Chloe had said?
The star that burns twice as bright burns half as long...

Chloe. She'd be expecting to announce it soon, and Frankie supposed the time was coming. Ideally, he had wanted to put it off until everyone else's cluttered social lives cooled off, but that didn't seem to be happening any time soon. He also hadn't wanted to do it while Laurence was in full impulsive mode, lest it trigger the wrong reaction, but now that he had personally witnessed the shift in his old friend, maybe the time was closer than he had thought. The more he thought about it, the more he wanted to just scream it out; it would be worth it just to drink in the look on her face after his lengthy delaying tactic.

He suspected that she had started to think that he didn't want to. Frankie could understand why she would have such doubts, but that didn't stop him from scoffing to himself. As if he'd have asked her if he didn't want to. Jean-François Pellerin did nothing without thinking about it first: it was a trait which, for some time, had put him at the top of the racing world, and it was a trait which he had put to full use before making such a life-altering decision as proposing to the woman he loved. He wanted very much to be married to Chloe. In fact, he would dearly like to have children with her.

He'd also like to have the time to raise said children without being required to fly all over the country on a weekly basis.

Was it ever time to retire.

Frankie caught sight of June one last time before entering the paddock; she was playing the role of girlfriend with impressive aplomb today, hanging off of Laurence's strikingly uninterested arm as they stood under a simulcast screen. Laurence was the absolute pinnacle of polite behaviour, answering her steady stream of questions about the horses parading in pixels before them, but Frankie could tell that his mind wasn't all there from the way he easily caught Frankie's eye without breaking the fluid sentences he formed. These were stock answers he supplied.

Frankie gave a nod and a small salute with his whip and moved on into the light of the iconic Churchill paddock, its fences already strained with the weight of the annual tide of people. They weren't here for him, or for Bolt, and yet he could feel their eyes on him as if he had suited up in green and gold for another Kentucky Derby, as if Conclude were waiting for him in that stall, the extent of her immortality not yet defined. As if it were Veridical, the proverbial One who started it all...

It hit him again like a kick to the gut: she was dead. Cal was gone. She who had given him everything, given him a career and then fed it with offspring who would make them both legends. Awry, Dorado, Hedwig, Eidolon, Silmarillion, Conclude: he could think of no other horse who had given him so much. Even Ephialtes had her blood rushing through his veins, giving his eye that irreplaceable spark of intelligence, removed though he was by--Frankie marveled--three generations from the great matriarch. He knew that there were farms out there which had already begun to inbreed to Veridical, so desired was her influence.

Frankie reached up to put his hand on Bolt's nose, caught his eye as the golden colt stood tense, waiting. An image flashed through his mind: the dark mare alive, rippling, her skin taut across layers of muscle. He glanced up: post three. This had been hers. She had stood here, in this posture, glaring at him as he waited for the order for riders up. Hardly anyone remembered that she had not won that day; in the sprawling, eloquent obituaries in the Blood-Horse, Daily Racing Form, Thoroughbred Times, there was hardly a word admitting that she had lost. Oh, but the songs those words sang of her speed, her resilience, that desire for victory which defines the champion racehorse, elevates a rare few into apotheosis.

The post parade passed and Frankie hardly noticed. Ephialtes was calmer than usual beneath him, though he still felt stretched, like a spring pulled to its limits. He walked into the starting gate with no resistance and stood firmly, ears forward, head high.

The crowd roared as the field broke, and Frankie's heart tugged again at the memory of that sound, that rising crescendo singing Veridical to the lead. Bolt's ears pricked, and Frankie had the strange thought that it was as if the horse could hear it, too when of course he could--that was the point.

Poles whisked by. Hooves pounded in the earth. Ephialtes, conqueror of the East and the West, could not lose this grade three Alysheba Stakes, they all said. Even if the veteran jock on his back was too heavy, this was the horse that had destroyed fields in the Donn and Santa Anita Handicaps with a greater disadvantage in weights. As Bolt hissed around the final turn, Frankie certainly hoped so. His eyes caught on the iconic spires of Churchill Downs, flickered to the sea of faces below, and a hundred memories bustled in his head, fighting for space at center stage.

Ephialtes swapped leads. Then, the strong, steady mountain of horseflesh beneath Frankie thudded down into the earth, much too hard. The air whistled in the ears of horse and jockey, and they were falling forward. The Churchill stretch rushed up at them. Frankie catapulted over Bolt's face, tucked his head and shoulder and absorbed the impact. The massive weight of Ephialtes, all seventeen hands of him, missed the fallen jockey's skull by inches, crashing chest-first as the song of the crowd fell deathly silent. Every instinct fired, and Frankie's hand opened and closed on Bolt's reins. He rolled onto his belly and had his knees under him before the giant colt had surged up onto all four feet again. Surge he did, but Frankie was quicker, ignoring the searing pain in his own left shoulder. Bolt tried to flee, but Frankie held him firm, and then the outriders were there, with Chloe seconds behind.

Her eyes were wide, darting between him and the horse with equal, paralyzed fear, and they were the deepest, richest blue he'd ever seen. Frankie was vaguely aware of an outrider prying Bolt's reins from his hand, of a vet lifting up the horse's left foreleg and examining his pastern, and of a paramedic telling him he'd broken his collarbone, he'd have to be transported to a hospital.

But before he could even think about complying, he took Chloe's hand, looked right into the blue of her eyes and said, "Tell them. Tell everyone everything. I'm finished, I'm done. I would marry you tomorrow."

The look on her face was everything he'd hoped it would be.



Shown:
Name: Ephialtes
Barn name: Bolt
Gender: Colt
Breed: Thoroughbred
Age: 4
Height: 17hh
Color: Liver chestnut sabino
Genotype: ee AA nSb
Markings: Sabino stockings on four legs; extended snip over left nostril and lip
Temperament: Somehow, Bolt managed to inherit the opposite of his sire's temper, and compound it with his dam's. There's a reason we named him after a storm god. However, he isn't really all that dangerous as long as he has an experienced handler; there's just a lot of bounce and fire in him. Plus, he may actually be louder and more vocal than mom.
Discipline: Racing
Preferred distance: Unknown
Running style: Midpack
Bloodlines: Cagar x Anemoi
Offspring: N/A
For stud/lease: Unavailable - too young

Do not use without my permission.

This is a request on The Secret [link] for Jesserene. This is her grulla mare character of the same name. Isn't she pretty? I lightened the mane and tail, and I love how the tail turned out! What a dynamic shape! My mouse appears to be behaving again. ^.^

Not much to say about this one, except any colour modification I attempted just muted the beautiful natural colours. So nothing crazy and purple this time. Enjoy!

Comments and favourites are very appreciated. :D

Can a tiger change its stripes?

This is a commission ordered by *hpintense for her friend ~painseeker83. What a great friend! This image is only to be used by ~painseeker83 (Iceberg) on HorsePhenomena.com.

This is my most complex commission to date, due in part to it being my first two-subject commission. It included some pretty advanced blending on the horse too.

Is the horse a chameleon of sorts, turning into the young white tiger it's observing? Or is it a bizarre breed of tiger-horse, surprised to see another creature so much like it and yet so different?

Things I like: the lighting! And that huge branch I cloned out of the top was a pretty seamless job if I say so myself. The stripes on the horse and the fuzzies on the tiger look pretty spiffy too.

Things I'm less satisfied with: the credits. I wish I could blend them better, but with complex backgrounds there's little you can do while still keeping them legible.


Specific comments are especially loved. I respond to all comments.

Hey, it's been a while since I've done a draft horse image, eh? Back when I made Autumn's pic

I said I'd be working on Belial's in the near future. Then the supposed ADD kicked in and I ran off on a few other muse-tangents because I couldn't make the stock (or my brain, more likely) work for poor Bel yet.

Needless to say, here he is. ~IzidarRaven's character Belial, former mate to ~NithyaCethin's Autumn. He's one of the more balanced Northern stallions, and one of the founders of the Loyalist movement. I love the way he's written!

Not much to say on the technical side, except the colour balance really fought me hard this time! Contrast wasn't as easy as usual either, but chopping the background in half helped me deal with the foreground issues separately and ultimately (I think/hope?) prevail. I love his tail! And his face, but I can't really take credit for that. xD
