RoM-Kras, Tsulo, ZanderArcher checked over Kras’s tack one final time, nodding with satisfaction as he found everything in order. “I’m all set over here!” He called over to June, who was finishing up with Tsulo’s saddle. The young woman finished cinching the girth, earning a huff from the tawny tokota before she glanced back in Archer’s direction. “All set over here!” She said, swinging herself up into the saddle and touching Tsulo’s sides with her heels. The large tawny tokota trotted off, and with June’s guidance headed towards the starting line. Archer gripped Kras’s saddle and swung himself into the seat, touching his heels to the bloodmarked tokota’s sides and sending him after June and Tsulo. The two handlers and tokotas waited patiently for the third and final pair of tokota and rider to show up so they could begin their trip.
After making sure everything was set in place, Finnyan took Zander’s reigns and left for the woods.
Dire Days Task 3 CollabArcher yawned and stretched, rising from his sleeping bag and rubbing the top of his head. He fumbled around in his tent, looking for a clean set of clothing to change into. After tugging on a hoodie, shirt, and pair of pants, Archer unzipped the tent flap and walked outside. It was early in the morning, and a weak sun shone from behind the clouds overhead. A few handlers had gathered around a fire a few hundred feet away from Archer. He was eager to see what was going on over there, but he had to feed Kanel first. The curly had obviously been awake for a little while, and raised his head and stared at Archer with eager and alert amber eyes as he approached. “Good morning boy.” Archer said, rubbing the tokota’s cheek and scratching behind his ear before walking towards the saddle bags where he kept Kanel’s food. Kanel rose to his paws and padded over to Archer, wagging his tail as he watched him pour the kibble into a bowl. Archer left the large curly eagerly ea
Moose Hunt with Kasa 2After this quick and quite lucky take down of this seemingly young moose, the other tokotas, Sky, Akeri, Harlequin, and Kanel, who hadn’t gotten to any actual hunting yet, grew quite restless, sensing other prey near. Diego wanted to use this opportunity to really engage in a run hunt for once. For that, they would have to approach the trees slowly, making sure not to disturb the herd to the center of the valley. Using the mounted tokotas, meaningly him on Sky and Archer on Akeri to get the herd up and running, the three loose tokotas would be able to quickly select and bring down a weaker individual with ease. Like how wolves did it. Diego, as a wolf shifter, really liked the idea of trying it out. He looked over at Archer on his sphinx, grinning a bit mischievously “How about we get these moose up and running? I’m sure our gals are up for it, and I’m certain our lads would enjoy it greatly.” Sky seemed to perk up at the mention of something morbidl
Dire Days Task 1 Bonus-Mountain LionArcher set out of camp at a brisk pace on Kanel’s back, riding the sleepy curly down a slight incline. He had just gotten into camp the other day and was eager to head out and explore the area. Archer had gotten up early as usual, but was pleasantly surprised to find that there were a few other handlers who also rose that early in the morning. After a cup of coffee, he had set out on Kanel’s back. A few different people had recommended one of the mountain ridges to travel along for a nice scenic hike, so he guided Kanel in that direction. The morning was chilly, and air chilled from the glacial valley swept past him and up the gentle slope. Archer hunched his shoulders, moving in the direction of the ridge. Kanel moved up the slope, picking his way around the large stones that littered the side of the mountain. As the wind gusted, it blew snow into Archer’s back and Kanel’s rump, prompting the cream colored curly tokota to move slightly faster, wanting to get up
Moose Hunt with Kasa 1It was fairly early that morning when Diego awoke. Not because there had been any unpleasant surprises or anything like it, but out of sheer anticipation. He was very excited for what was in store today. Diego had gotten a call from Archer, asking to go for another hunt together. Having nothing planned during the time, Diego happily agreed, suggesting they go for a Moose hunt as he had heard there was a herd in the area. He tried to delay his earliness by doing his morning routine as slow as possible, and double checking the saddlebags many times. As he was still even to early to go prepare his Tokotas, he decided he’d just spend more time brushing Sky today.
He spent a great deal of time in the barn, petting his Tokotas, giving them treats when they stuck their heads out their stall doors.
Diego proceeded by preparing his dear longmane girl, Sky, thoroughly. She enjoyed his attention very much, whining a reply when he spoke with her, trying to lick his face occasionally, but rem
