So I lost all of my horses when my computer crashed and I had to switch computers and such and I found myself missing Seeing Stars and missing having horses in my game. I came here to find Neco had some horses up for adoption and I fell in love with Crusader <3 I quickly applied for him and he arrived today!
Here's some pics I took of him upon getting him into my game <3
I love him so much already <3 I have forgotten how to do almost everything around here since it's been so long, so I'll be using him to help me re-learn everything and get back into the swing of things! Hope to see you around!

Thank you Ryder!
I went searching through my email and found all of my horses but ONE! I've messaged Pollution in hopes of finding him too <3 So, let me re-introduce all of them since we haven't been around in so long! Some of them are still new to me.
He's always been a favorite of mine <3 He achieved his In Hand Championship, and made it to Dressage Level 2! Zipper also earned 19/30 points in Halter & 7/30 points in Eventing <3 Zipper will be 9 Real years old this year and I think it's time to retire him. I am very proud of how well he did even though we struggled a bit (Mostly because I was still learning!)
My next horse is Bootsy, who Zipper has always loved. They grew up together and I learned my way around SS with both of them.
Bootsy earned her Championship in Endurance with 30/30 points! She also earned 21/30 points in Show Jumping! Bootsy will also be 9 Real years old this year and I think it's time to retire her too so I can focus on our younger and newer horses. I think her and Zipper have definitely earned their retirement! I may or may not breed them and raise a foal from them to take their place too. We'll see how I'm feeling.
Seraphina came to me when Kezune contacted me seeing if I wanted her. Who could say no to such a wonderful looking horse!? I have to thank Seraphina for getting me into and absolutely addicted to the sport of Thoroughbred racing! She never did very good in it, but I enjoyed it so much and learned the ropes on her. She is the reason I now have so many other Thoroughbreds.
Seraphina finished Open Level Racing, making her a GIII Mare <3 She also gained her Hunter Under Saddle Championship with 35/30 points! We had started competing with her in Endurance after Bootsy had gained her Championship and we another discipline to show her in. She earned 10/30 points in Endurance before we disappeared. She will also be turning 9 this year and will also be retiring.
I found Zecora & Qunn in a sale or something here at SS that Angora was having I believe. I really loved the way they looked.
Zecora (pictured above), gained her Novice Show Jumping Championship with 45/30 points! She did amazing in it! She also picked up 3/30 points in Driving, the main thing I wanted to do with her. If I remember right, there just weren't very many shows for Driving going at the time. We did start her in Hunter Under Saddle, but we disappeared before any of those shows were judged and I haven't checked the results. She was also able to snag 9/30 points for In Hand.
Zecora will be 8 years old this year and I think I will be retiring her too. I'm just ready to focus on the horses I was never able to get in the ring.
Quinn.... My lovely Quinn <3 I really love this horse. With her, I learned Western Pleasure and Reining with and really loved working with her. I remember how confident she was and it was really hard to get the sliding pics. Quinn was able to pick up her Western Pleasure Championship with 31/30 points and gained 4/30 points for Reining. Quinn will also be turning 8 years old this year and will be retiring.
Dream Catcher is another of my favorites <3 He was bred by Neco in one of their Thoroughbred breeding programs. I was super happy to get him! He's always been so full of energy it's hard to get him to stand still for more than a second. Either that or he's falling right asleep. There doesn't seem to be an in between. I was super excited to get him in races but never got around to it before we disappeared. I also never got him into anything else, so we will definitely be training him up and getting him into what ever we can! Mostly racing though!
Starshot was also bred by Neco in the same breeding program I got Dream Catcher from (but different Sire / Dam). Her and Dream Catcher grew up together and get along wonderfully. Startshot has always been a little more reserved than Dream Catcher. I was really looking forward to getting her in the races too, but same as Dream Catcher, I wasn't able to before we were gone. I am looking forward to seeing what she can do!
Gah <3 I really love this horse too. I am a sucker for Black & White horses, they are my favorite if you couldn't tell! I was wanting a mostly black Thoroughbred with minimal white to join my growing herd when I found Rhapsody in Kataan's Sales page in her barn. I didn't hesitate to apply for her! Soon she was here with me and we were quick to get her racing. She finished Open level racing and quickly became a GIII Mare. She performed better than Seraphina and got me even more hooked on Thoroughbred racing. I didn't get a chance to try her in other disciplines.
Rhapsody just turned 8 years old. I don't feel like I got to do much with her, so I will be continuing with her for a bit longer to see if we can pick up any more points and such.
I bought Vickie from Kataan out of her Thoroughbred Foal Sale on June 11th, 2015. I disappeared so soon after getting Vickie that I really don't know much about her at all. I didn't get to get her in races or anything, so I am looking forward to getting to know her and see what she can do!
I was wanting another pleasure horse to take Quinn's place in the shows and that's when I got Gunsmoke. He's hexed by Pollution. He's another I never got to know very well before I disappeared. He's also the one I can't seem to find and I hope I am able to get him back! I really love him and would really love to get to know him and show him here at SS <3
I don't remember how I got Paradise. I might have put up a wanted add or something because I remember wanting another Saddlebred like Zecora. I know he was hexed by Arty and I was able to choose what I wanted him to look like. He turned out so beautiful <3 He's another one I didn't really get to get to know before being gone. I was hoping to breed him and Zecora one day. That may or may not still happen, we'll see!
I am definitely looking forward to getting him into shows and seeing what he can do!
Paradise will also be 4 years old this year <3
And that... my friends.... brings us all up to date on my growing herd of horses that I am SO happy to have back! Really thankful I was able to find all of them. And now to have Crusader to join us <3 Even better!
Thank you to everyone who helped me get to where I am today with my horse herd! Looking forward to being active around the forum again and I hope to see it pick back up!
