Never give up

by Severelyhorseobsessed


For some of us horseless horsecrazygirls, life seems like a consistent down fall. We feel the only thing that would make us happy is a horse. That is so true in my case and I love horses so much.

You know you're horse crazy when...

1. Your bedroom is covered in horse posters, models, etc.
2. All you think about are horses.
3. You take up any chance to ride horses.
4. You go online a search for horse pics, videos and games.
5. You often beg your parents to take you to watch local horse shows.
6. You have at least read 100 horse books.
7. You subscribe to at least 1 horse related magazine.
8. You sometimes pretend your bike is a horse.
9. When your parents ask you what movie you want to watch you say Black beauty, Flicka, or anything horse related.
10. You beg your parents every day for a horse.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is don't give up! My friend rode horses for 7 years and finally got her own horse. Trust me, from what she says, it's totally worth the wait. I want a best friend so bad!

Also, if you guys want some things to do to keep from feeling bored, bingo! I have some ideas.

1. If you have model horses set up a stable for them.

2. Draw horses.

3. Read read read. Horse books are great!

4. Create a dream horse and right stories about them.

Well, hope y'all enjoyed!

Appaloosa
by: Aspen

The Appaloosa is an American horse breed best known for its colorful spotted coat pattern. There is a wide range of body types within the breed, stemming from the influence of multiple breeds of horses throughout its history. Each horse's color pattern is genetically the result of various spotting patterns overlaid on top of one of several recognized base coat colors. The color pattern of the Appaloosa is of interest to those who study equine coat color genetics, as it and several other physical characteristics are linked to the leopard complex mutation (LP). Appaloosas are prone to develop equine recurrent uveitis and congenital stationary night blindness; the latter has been linked to the leopard complex.

Artwork depicting prehistoric horses with leopard spotting exists in prehistoric cave paintings in Europe. Images of domesticated horses with leopard spotting patterns appeared in artwork from Ancient Greece and Han dynasty China through the early modern period; the Nez Perce people of what today is the United States Pacific Northwest developed the original American breed. Appaloosas were once referred to by settlers as the "Palouse horse", possibly after the Palouse River, which ran through the heart of Nez Perce country. Gradually, the name evolved into "Appaloosa".

The Nez Perce lost most of their horses after the Nez Perce War in 1877, and the breed fell into decline for several decades. A small number of dedicated breeders preserved the Appaloosa as a distinct breed until the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was formed as the breed registry in 1938. The modern breed maintains bloodlines tracing to the foundation bloodstock of the registry; its partially open stud book allows the addition of some Thoroughbred, American Quarter Horse and Arabian blood.

Hi, Aspen
by: Siverlyhorseobsessed

I love playing with Papo and Safari ltd and Breyer and Schleich and all that also. Is your room horse themed? Check out my how to create a horse themed room on here and no I don't have Facebook or Pinterest yet. My parents would rather, I didn't tell them I'm around 14. What's your Facebook and Pinterest page called I would love to look at the drawings? I love writing horse stories and read about them. You sure do know your horse breeds. I drive my family crazy whenever I talk about horses. I'm kinda in your spot right now. I only get to be around horses like once a month. Well hope to talk soon. Want to chat?

Hi
by: Aspen

Hi, Siverlyhorseobsessed

I play with Papo and every toy horse you can think of. I also read books about horses and also write about them and I am so very glad you like my horse drawings and I'm very happy you want more posted. BTW, all do that when I get some more drawn up and I have heard about Curly horses and I do want one someday. They're Hypoallergenic Curlies are claimed to be the only hypoallergenic horse breed; most people allergic to horses can handle Curly Horses without suffering any allergic reaction. Research indicates a protein is missing from the hair of Curlies which may be what causes allergic reactions to horses in allergy suffers, but the study was never officially published. Members of the Curly community are working towards funding more research on the topic. I do very much so love them. do you have a Pinterest page?

Thank you,
Aspen

Also, I know you really love horses so maybe you could if you have some Breyer models maybe you could set them up and build barns and tack and stuff depending how old you are. And also read about them. I'm glad you have horsecrazygirls to read stories and stuff. Happy drawing! Please post more art I love it so much!

I Know How You Feel
by: Siverlyhorseobsessed

Hey, Aspen I know how you feel. I'm the same way about mine, thanks. By the way if you would let me I would like to buy yours for tons of money. Want to be friends? Thank you for commenting. By the way I know your allergic but have you ever heard of a curly horse? They like have a coat to where you are not allergic to them. Maybe you could find one to hang around?

Yes!
by: Aspen

As you all know I'm allergic to ponies/horses and all the time when I draw a horse I pretend I have that horse in my stables and that I ride that horse everyday. Every drawing means something to me and I have had people want to buy my horse drawings for $25 and I had to say no because I'm just too attached to them. It's like giving away you're first horse. Some people don't understand what I'm saying about too attached to a piece of paper but I'm sure there's a few horse crazy artists out there who does.

Thank you,
Aspen
