NEW ARRIVAL! A new mare has arrived at the stables! She's currently being housed with Connie and Rita at the main facility until the switchover to the broodmare facility is in play, which should be any day now. Her name is HHE Path Less Taken, and she's a beautiful palomino Thoroughbred. Pictures of her will be up later. She will be bred to Ollie before August tenth, but the foal may not be put up for public sale.
COAT REVAMP-OVERBOARD AT THE STERN You read right! Ollie has had a coat revamp. I've made his markings more realistic. His color has stayed the same, but all white markings on him have been rethought and updated. Images are below.
Ollie may be put up for (limited) public stud at the end of the month. More information to come at a later date though.
NEW FACILITY- BROODMARE BARN I'm in love with this facility. It has a small pond, eight stalls (four with extra large runs), four one-mare turnouts, three two-mare turnouts, and one three-mare turnout. There are two grooming bays in the barn, and a feed/tack room. There is a public arena just down the road where mares can train and get some time away from their foals. The entire property is fenced in, providing both security and privacy.

With Ella's first child due any day now, we bring some much-needed up-dates! Firstly, I'd glad to announce that Overboard at the Stern placed second in his first ever show! The event was novice Dressage. With his win, I can announce that his official revamped coat will be pictured below.

This is the first in-game picture for my Drum Horse stallion, WRNGS Spartan's Curse. He's just gorgeous, and I love him already. Here he is being warmed up before some Dressage schooling with the lead trainer, Annie. This is also my first edit where I added on (lunge line and tail), so how does it look?

*Waves the Drum Horse flag.* ...yes, I am just that shameless. Also, the lunge line editing is quite good--especially for your first time! *Mumbles.* Wish mine could've been that good the first time I tried...
This thread should have a ton more comments, you're a natural at taking good photos and editing! I almost didn't believe that it's your first time editing lunge lines & tails because it looks so nice <3 This is one thread that I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on.

And two new arrivals! Meet HHE Path Less Taken, a palomino Thoroughbred mare, and her foal (sired by Overboard at the Stern)!
If you're interested in my genetics, I use a genetic calculator, and a dice roller. First I use the color calculator to get the percentage of each color possible, and then use the dice accordingly. For example, for this colt, the odds were 50% palomino, 25% chestnut, and 25% cremello. I then use the dice for color. For the example above, I rolled a four-sided die once, numbers 1-2 for palomino, 3 for chestnut, and 4 for cremello. After color, I roll for gender, 1 for colt, and 2 for filly.

VSH Highwayman, known as Hero around the barn, is settling in quite well. The other mares are trying to figure out what exactly the little colt is from a distance. There is also a new mare on the facility, PAEC Lovely Blossom, a buckskin Thoroughbred mare. There may be a foal from her later in the month. Also pictured is the new staff member Brett Montalvo, the broodmare manager, with Connie and Marina.

So, i've been updating my site this weekend, and thought I'd share some of the images taken! first up is Lunar Maestro, the new Quarter Horse mare, who is now in foal to Overboard at the Stern.
next is the new filly, who is a Overboard at the Stern and PAEC Lovely Blossom foal. She was a requested breeding (kind of), but may be put up for a quick adoption if the requester declines.
now, is Logan Vanderburg, atop Overboard at the Stern. she's the eldest of the Vanderburg kids, and in line to take over the establishment when her parents retire.
here's Ella and Sebastian, Ella with Logan's first pony Jinx, and Sebastian with Overboard at the Stern.
last, but certainly not least, is a new image of Overboard at the Stern, as his last pictures were a bit too blue-tinted, and taken at five in the morning. There was another image (used as the link to his profile), but it seems that I forgot to save it before I edited the size for the profile link image, so it was lost.
and this concludes the August 26, 2012 update! stay posted!
