The Random Herd

The Horsies of Black Mist

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

I love horses!  So I'll probably end up with a lot more besides the breeds I specialize in.  There was a time when I tried to limit myself to mostly hexed breeds that would actually act similar to cats and dogs in real live.  But no more!  I've totally given up on that idea.  There are just too many awesome breeds out there now.  I don't care that my horses play bow.  XD  So, here are my other random horsies!  Wee!

These are my personal petz and are not for adoption.

King of Vagabonds
Vagabond
Formal Name:  Black Mist's King of Vagabonds
Call Name:  Vagabond
Gender:  Male
Breed:  Irish Cob
Adoption Date:  July 6, 2005
Registration:  LSAPC #H1014
Lineage:  1st gen. hexed
Origin:  Hexed at Black Mist
Snow Points:  0 Open / 5 Classic / 0 Specialty
1st Dressage @ Bedazzled Classic #1
Irish cobs are really beautiful horses.  I love big horses with big furry hooves.  Vagabond is so named because Irish cobs were used by gypsies to pull their caravans.  Gypsies wonder around a lot, so vagabond made sense.  I love the sound of the word vagabond, it sounds somehow majestic and humble at the same time, so that's how I came up with his name.


Sisters of Avalon
Avalon
Formal Name:  Black Mist's Sisters of Avalon
Call Name:  Avalon
Gender:  Female
Breed:  Manda's Horse
Adoption Date:  November 17, 2006
Registration:  None
Lineage:  1st gen, hexed
Origin:  Hexed at Black Mist
OMG OMG Manda gave me her horse file.  She gave it to me!  That was so amazing, I was so excited and flattered!  I mean I was one of the first few chosen to have the file back in the day!  I will always be indebted to Manda for that.  I knew the first thing I wanted to do was hex an appaloosa.  So I hexed Avalon!  This file is not easy to put spots on, it's quite complicated.  But I enjoyed the challenge and I think I did okay.  Avalon is named after a Cyndi Lauper song of the same name as her formal name.


Lazarus, Rise From Death
Lazarus
Formal Name:  YS's Rise From Death
Call Name:  Lazarus
Gender:  Male
Breed:  Manda's Horse
Adoption Date:  July 18, 2006
Registration:  None
Lineage:  1st gen, hexed
Origin:  Contest prize from Manda @ YodaSoda
Oh.  My.  God.  I couldn't believe how lucky I was when Manda gave me one of her horses.  This was back in the early days of the file, when hardly any body had a horse.  I won a contest and Lazarus was my prize, I got to design him myself and Manda hexed him for me.  I have no idea why I named him Lazarus, I just think the name sounds cool and somehow fits him.  He is a sexy beast that's for sure!  I love his simple black and white.  And he has odd eyes!  I have such an obsession with natural odd eyes.  Laz will always be a really special horsie.  I loffs him!


Nierika
Nierika
Formal Name:  Lizzie's Nierika
Call Name:  Nierika
Gender:  Female
Breed:  Manda's Horse
Adoption Date:  January 8, 2007
Registration:  None
Lineage:  1st gen, hexed
Origin:  Adopted from Lizzie @ Flookey
Nierika is so pretty and has such amazing spot work.  Just look at that hand print on her chest, wow!  I love her pale color combo and beautiful odd eyes.  Her texture mixes the colors so nicely.  And her pink nose is so cute!  She was part of one of the first litters of hexed Manda horses when Manda gave the file out to select people.  I was so excited to get Nierika!  I can't get over how beautiful she is, I love watching her gallop around my screen.


Skullduggery
Skullduggery
Formal Name:  Black Mist's Skullduggery
Call Name:  Skullduggery
Gender:  Male
Breed:  Manda's Horse
Adoption Date:  December 13, 2006
Registration:  None
Lineage:  1st gen, hexed
Origin:  Hexed at Black Mist
Skullduggery was hexed by me (using Manda's horse file of course) to resemble a Breyer Horse that I really badly want, but probably never will get.  (Breyer Horses are collectible plastic model horses) Skullduggery was a special limited addition horse for Halloween, he is a black appaloosa with his spots making the shape of a skull, and the blaze on his forehead looking like a ghost.  I am not that great with spots, and Manda's horse is not that easy to put spots on, so it was a real challenge for me to create Skullduggery, but I think he turned out okay.  Since the model horse Skullduggery is super rare and expensive and will never be mine, I am really thrilled that I can have him in my Petz game.


BOO!
