an Halloween mini event

running from the 10th of October to the 10th of November

In a little town far away in the wilderness, almost completely cut from the rest of the world for centuries until the advent of technology, is being held an equestrian show. The residents are a bit hostile, but they don't approach the newcomers. They are keeping their distance from strangers, that's how they have always done. Many stories local to the area are said to be very scary folktales, but they are a living reality to the folks here. Some believe them, some don't, but everyone in town is on the same opinion that something evil has been afoot here for as long as they can remember. The mayor, a recent addition to the community, is persuaded this is only superstitions, and that this is what has been keeping tourists from visiting his picturesque little town. He is actively working on bringing new

The first of it's kind in a long time; this show is geared towards the unnatural side of HARPG. Bring out all your little monsters and show them off here for the skeletons on parade!
Sorry natural horses, maybe next time! Each entrant here must have some kind of unnatural quality to them from "off" zombie like colors, to glowing ectoplasm, to additional legs or heads! The spookier the better!
Horses with Sedir or other potions are allowed; but only to those that posses strange or unusual qualities such as too many eyes or an even worse unnatural color. Horses with mutations that make them look unnatural are permitted too, but on a case by case basis! If you are unsure be sure to pop a comment down below and I'll answer it asap!

Heyyyyyyy guys!!!! Long time no see!!
I've finally reached a point in my life where I would love to rejoin the HARPG scene, I miss the sparkle pony community so much! Tell me what has changed? Any groups or happenings I should know about?!
Also as a few of you guys know I'm super active in the ottb community in RL, and was thinking I would like to bring that over to HARPG. Is there already a community with that focus? I was thinking of collabing with a few of you guys to bring an Other worldy OTTB TIP program to life! Any interest? Is this already a thing?
Thanks you guys and I look forward to hearing from you guys!
What the heck has crawled up peoples' butts these days? I'm not paying for an imaginary breeding to your imaginary horse so I can draw another imaginary horse and say it's mine when someone else can draw the exact horse, change the blaze into a star and there's nothing I can do....I love the Nordanner as much as the next person but really guys I don't understand the craze with them right now...and that doll maker thingy that everyone is making adoptables with, it was cool the first week but seeing the same horse over and over again with a slight color change is getting old.
Rant over sorry, I really couldn't hold it anymore :) This is not to
