Red Hot N Hotroddin by Zephyrra
Red Hot N Hotroddin

Insomnia strikes again... This is the brainchild of my past week or so, I've been just dreaming about a horse like this and eventually I cracked and had to make it happen. And of course, I couldn't stay away from my lovely Quarter Horses... :XD: I promise he and Molly will be my ONLY two for a while! I figured it would be nice to have another discipline to alternate to when I'm feeling bored of one. Hope you guys like him as much as I do! :la:

Name: Red Hot N Hotroddin
Barn Name: Remy
Gender: stallion
Breed: Quarter Horse
Age: 2
Height: 15.2hh
Color: black
Markings: blaze, RF sock, LF/RH/LH half stocking
Discipline: western pleasure futurity
Genotype: Ee/aa
Breeder: unknown
Conformation: solid and strong with a sleek, elegant build. Well-balanced with a well-turned croup and square hip. Slightly average height but a bit leggy for a stock type horse. Would not be suitable as a cow or ranch type horse. A good example of a “show” type stock horse.

Sire: unknown

Sire's Sire: unknown
Sire's Dam: unknown

Dam's Sire: unknown
Dam's Dam: unknown



Background

Notes: No stable vices. Sound and quiet, strong affinity for western events although could potentially play hunt seat with further training. We are starting him out as a western pleasure futurity prospect, but we will be adding showmanship, horsemanship, trail, western riding, and possibly English events as he matures.

Personality: Loveable, cuddly, and a little in-your-face. Tends to get a little mouthy when he thinks he can get away with it, but he’s usually just trying to play or sneak a treat. Knows when it’s time to work, and can buckle down and do it, but gets burned out quickly.

Peppy by Zephyrra
Peppy
I was trying to resist uploading more horse show pictures, but I just HAD to share this with you guys...

LOOK. AT. THIS. HORSE. :jawdrop:

His name is Peppy, and he was the only draw at my IHSA show on Saturday that was a stallion... and I drew him. :love: He was DEAD broke, and a superb mover, just OH MY GOD I loved him. He's absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't deal with it. I got third on him too! My saddle was slipping and apparently my readjusting in front of the judge was all that kept me out of the top two, but I'm very much okay with third especially since I got to ride this hunk :la:

Also, this is going to be my main human character - her name is Ileana Gabor, she's the Romanian stable owner and main trainer. :la: We're getting started, finally!

Horse: Athan Meleth
Rider: Ileana Gabor
Stable: Pennington Farms
Show: TLECs First Annual Training Show
Class: Entry Level Dressage

Can't find the darn reference I used, but when I find it I'll post a link!
