Here's the last update of the weekend! Not much has happened other than a day-long photoshoot and editing spree. Now you're able to see WRNGS Spartan's Curse, VSH Gravity, Grooving Echo, and trainer Annie Gleare in action! There's also some new shots of Spooked Connection and Risky Investor.
WRNGS Spartan's Curse, a Drum Horse stallion, has been a great addition to our training facility. He's sure showing what a good dressage mount can do!
VSH Gravity, a Kiger Mustang stallion, was the first western horse to arrive at Vanderburg Sport Horses, and he's not letting anyone forget it! He's a sweet boy, Annie's favorite, but he does know how to kick up his heels!
Grooving Echo, a Thoroughbred mare, ridden by Annie Gleare. Echo is notorious for finding a way out of her stall and ending up in the tack area at three in the morning. She's quite simply the genius of the horses at VSH, and is showing great promise in her training.
Spooked Connection, one of the two starting broodmares at VSH, is calm and collected, but her old racing career sometimes strikes a match in her. She gallops around the paddock quite frequently, especially after the night in her stall.
Risky Investor, one of the starting broodmares at the facility, is a complete sweetheart. She's known for being a great mom to her foals, and gets along with just about everyone. She was recently retired from her jumping career to become a broodmare, and has raised two foals excellently, with a third on the way.
This concludes the August 27, 2012 update! Stay posted until Sunday morning!

here's the first September update! All week, I've been tracking a Mustang herd and making plans to capture them before any of the other residents could do so inhumanely. We caught them a few days ago, and after passing medical checks, being gelded, and cleaned up, we've decided all but two are ready for adoption! We even got a little surprise; a bachelor stallion that had been following the herd for almost as long as we had! he's included (the paint) in the adoption. for information on applying, click here. Here are just the images of the horses for adoption.

well, today I was excited because of all the new sliders that have come out recently. so I made a pony. he's really cute. I'll have to post pictures of him later (his name is Charlie and he's just really adorable okay). And then, since I got home early from work, I downloaded all of the new custom content. and then I decided to make a new stables. now, you should know, that once I start something, I have to finish it. this led to falling asleep at my desk. twice. it's just about 12:45 AM, and I've been awake since 5 AM because of work yadda yadda. so please, if you see any mistakes in this please tell me. anyway, here's my little brain fart; Gentle Knoll Stables. It's an eight-stall barn with a two grooming bays, a tack room, a huge sand round pen, a huge sand arena, three huge pastures, and three pretty large individual turn outs. I tried to keep all the architectural stuff earth-tone-y because I thought it looked cool. so, after five hours, I bring to you Gentle Knoll Stables, which you can download here.

So, do you remember that little cremello colt? he's three, and may be putting out his first foal this month! He's turned into a lovely little fella, and a great addition to our barn! Pictures of him are below.
We also have two new arrivals! The first is a filly from Fetta Di Vita Stables. She's a dapple grey yearling who enjoys to kick her heels up. Her name is FDV Evergreen Infusion, or Infy as she's called around the barn. Images are below.
And lastly for this update, is a requested breeding of Overboard at the Stern and HHE Path Less Taken. He's a colt by the name of VSH Odysseus. And you know what's kind of amazing about him? He's the second cremello out of these two! No telling now, but he'll probably be pretty stocky like his half-siblings and full brother.
You've probably also noticed that these pictures aren't taken at the usual facility. That's because I am currently operating on another computer. If you look closely enough, you'll also see that three-year-old Hero isn't exactly how he was as a weanling either. This is because, well, I was dumb and didn't save him on my laptop before I had to uninstall the game. Luckily, he wasn't too difficult to re-imagine, and I even upgraded his coat. The lot seen in these images is my lot, that is available for download, Gentle Knoll Stables. Images and links to download this lot can be found in previous posts.
This concludes this update! Sorry the updates lately have been few and far between, I've just been really busy with life and school. Stay tuned for more updates!

A new trainer has arrived at the barn (a post will be made about her on a later date) has arrived at the barn! She's been here for about a week now, and has really taken a liking to all of the horses here. Her name's Meredith Regnald, and she's going to take Annie's place as lead trainer. She's really doing great with all the horses, especially Hero and Echo. Echo is a sweetheart, but Hero tends to be a little selective on who he wants around. There's no doubt that Meredith is here to stay. She works well with the horses, and I just couldn't help but to steal a few quick pictures.
Today, we set up the jumps for Echo. We're not trying to work her too hard lately because she's been a bit sore, but of course, she over jumped the highest jump we had set up in the arena. Echo just isn't too happy about slowing down.
Along with Echo, Meredith decided that Hero needed to go out. I'm not comfortable with him being ridden over jumps yet, as he is just three and still has quite a bit of growing to do. Instead, Meredith just rode him around the arena to get him accustomed to the bright colors and footing. He was being a bit difficult to say the least, but of course, Meredith knew just what to do.
