we at VSH have had a few new arrivals lately! firstly, is the lovely palomino yearling QMR Pepper, who will be joining our showing team and breeding program when she's gone through training and gets some more maturity.
next, the broodmares have officially arrived, with their foals in-tow! Odysseus and Path Less Taken were the first to arrive about a week ago, and since then, Odysseus has been handed over to his new home. Lovely Blossom had an absolutely gorgeous cremello filly, sired by VSH Highwayman, who is up for adoption if I find her the perfect home. Spooked Connection had a lovely buckskin filly, who has been sent to her new home. She was also sired by VSH Highwayman. Lastly, Risky Investor had a "cheeky," but still adorable little palomino colt. He was sired by good ol' Overboard at the Stern. The colt has some attitude issues, and had to be separated from the group in pasture because he was ganging up on the cremello filly with the little buckskin. The group of girls is shown below, complete with matching blankets (thank you Amanda and Christina!).

hey there! so, I've told some people about my three cats, so I decided that it's about time to show them off! not pictured is Ziggy, because he hates having his picture taken, and hides whenever I pull out the camera. Stella is the black one, and Lucy is the other strange color.

I have officially entered WRNGS Spartan's Curse into his first show! He seems to have done pretty well, and I think that the editing in the first image is pretty good. I think the editing just gets progressively worse as I got more tired last night, though. more images of show entries will up up soon!

hello! so, for this update, there is a preview of the December sales! they're all Mustangs, and you can visit our Mustang round up page for more information on the horses being sold. the little silver bay sabino filly is already sold, but all the other ten are available to go to loving homes!
Gunnar (lot 1-12-12) is a flaxen chestnut stallion from herd one. he is expected to be about fifteen years old. his only known offspring is the silver bay sabino filly out of the bay sabino mare.
Poppy (lot 2-12-12) is a bay mare from herd one. she is expected to be about four years old. Poppy here is just a bit lazy. once she gets going, though, you better watch out, because she's great over fences! Poppy, or rather Genie, is somewhat of an escape artist (hence her nickname), but is still sweet around the mares in her pasture. she would make an excellent addition to a lesson barn once she's fully trained.
Lola (lot 3-12-12) is a bay sabino mare from herd one. she is expected to be about four as well. her only known offspring is the silver bay sabino filly by the flaxen chestnut stallion. Lola is, from what we know, third-in-command in the current pasture rankings. she doesn't take flack from anyone, and stands up for herself and her foal. when we rounded her herd up, she was pregnant with a filly that would eventually be born at our facilities. she's been a great mother to her little filly so far, and does well with other horses. she is very daring, and will steal food out of our hands if we offer it to her now. she has a bright future ahead of her, and we'd love to see her go to a loving competition or lesson home.
Elsie (lot 4-12-12) is a chestnut mare from herd one. she is expected to be about eleven years old. Elsie is a very shy mare who darts into the farthest corner she can whenever we walk by her pasture. she was pretty far down on the totem pole in her herd from what we can tell, and has been separated from the main group of mares for her own safety. she would make a great advanced lesson horse once she's fully trained.
Clyde (lot 5-12-12) is a bay stallion with stunning blue eyes from herd two. he is expected to be about six years old. his only known offspring is a bay filly out of the grey mare. Clyde is extremely aggressive. he was purposefully the first horse off the trailer and the last horse on. he's really only happy with the mare that he came in with, Bonnie. we haven't tried any gentling or training with him, simply because his behavior is dangerous and an insurance liability. he will only go to a home experienced in handling dangerously aggressive horses, or he will be introduced to a herd of mares as a gelding.
Bonnie (lot 6-12-12) is a grey mare from herd two. she is expected to be about ten years old. Bonnie, well, is quite the little lady! she's pretty quiet and submissive with the other mares that she's bonded with, but is quite playful. she is still very weary of us humans, and we haven't been able to work with her much. her only known offspring is the bay filly by the bay stallion.
Magic (lot 7-12-12) is a black bachelor stallion. he is expected to be about ten years old. Magic is the most nervous horse out of this group of sales. he's shy and nervous, but extremely fast. he is quite smart as well, though. his nerves and shyness probably explain why he was captured as a bachelor at around the age of ten, which is pretty rare.
Tessa (lot 8-12-12) is a chestnut mare from our previous round up herd. she is expected to be about seven years old. her only known offspring is a red roan colt out of the previous blue roan stallion. Tessa came in with our first-ever round up, and after her two years here at the facility, she's really become quite the friendly little girl. she is halter trained, and like her colt, has been worked in the round pen with and without tack. she's been ridden a couple of times without much fuss pretty recently. she will need an advanced rider to complete her training, and we would love to see her go to a competing home.
Lilah (lot 10-12-12) is a bay yearling filly by the bay stallion and out of the grey mare from herd two. as soon as we got her in, we starting working with Lilah away from her herd. she wasn't too happy about it at first, but we've gone great lengths with her. she's far from being ridden in both age and demeanor, but we expect her to become a great mount for a lovely owner once she's trained.
Mac (lot 11-12-12) is a two year old red roan colt by the previous blue roan stallion and out of the chestnut mare (lot 8-12-12). we've been working with Mac since he was born at our facility two years ago. I was really debating on keeping him, as he was bottle fed after a month with his mom, and raised by our staff at the wild horse facility. he is now halter trained, and has been worked in a round pen with and without a saddle. he's gentle and sweet, but he is still a young horse, and should be handled as such. he will only go to a perfectly ideal home, if sold at all, because we are so attached to him.

I posted this stuff on the new forum, and I thought you guys over here deserved to see this sexiness as well. click each of the images to get to the high-resolution versions.
so, I created this girl a few days ago, and just now had the time to do a mini photoshoot with her! Her name's Carolina Heck, but she prefers the nickname Lina (Lie-nah) because Carolina is a stupid name in her mind. She's going to be applying for a position as a groom, but I may whore her out if her application is declined. I love her. She's all awesome and punky and I've never created a sim like her ever. So, here she is! More pictures of her (with a suprise *coughgorgeouscough* visitor or two or three).
this horse. I can't. I'm fangirling over him I just can't.
anyway, this is Scarface, the future horse of the founder of my legacy. I created him in about an hour and a half, and he's a black overo (American?) Warmblood stallion. I may put him into my stables somehow if there's a demand for him in shows or whatnot. his coat was made from scratch by me, with a custom facial marking (sdfsffsadffaf I CAN'T). He's pictured with Lina (she's above omg look at that beauty). He is by far my favorite horse that I've managed to create. I MEAN LOOK AT HIM. also, his namesake is the other side of his face, but it's probably not what you're thinking. so, you guys tell me; more pictures?
here he is again, this time with a solo appearance to show off his eye! this horse. I seriously can't.
also, let me introduce WHM/VSH Patriotic Pirate ("Pipa"), a buckskin Trakehner filly by WMH Denkul, out of HHE Path Less Taken. she's so cute I just want to squeeze her.

here's a little preview of the upcoming story. enjoy!
it'd be great if you guys could reply to my thread on the new forum as well if you see this. I'd love to get the story updated, but I don't want to post on my account too many times in a row. the thread is here. thank you in advance if you do <3.
but this new story should be pretty awesome. if I remember, I'll post it here around the same time I post it on the new forum.
