a little farm by the sea

My mares have been giving birth left right and centre.

Here is my dapple gray Orlov Trotter mare with her French Trotter foal. I really wanted a Baskir Curly like his dad standing next to him but it was not to be.

Then my Gypsy Vanner gave birth to a little mare just like her while my white Camargue gave me a Westphalian with the 2016 anniversary costume coat. I think it's cool that they can pass their costumes.

As is the case with my little Exmoor pony wearing a Farmer Bay costume coat.

I've had to use my shop parcel to keep some of my extra horses and ponies and after leaving them out in the sun for some time, I've made a little shack for them and added extras like the puppies from Jian and the hay wagon setup the Summer Farm Scene in the picture below for only 50L from Simply Shelby at Melville's California Dreamin which opens till August 20. It also came with a pair of cows which I edited out. There are a whole lot of other 50L and 50% off setups on sale there. So hurry!

Above is part of the California Dreamin scenery.

And finally, Moon is wearing the latest pants from COCO which you can get at the Knot & Co. She is also wearing an old Truth hair. As usual, she has on the Monica skin From Deetalez and the Lelutka Simone Bento Head together with the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body.

a little bit Country

My little parcel is now a little ranch. The horses have out numbered the cats and the dogs. This month the Liaison Collaborative has gone Country Chic and while I was there, I bought the Dakota Bandana Top and Jacket from GO! so is the pose by [evoLove]. The hair and hat is from Argrace and the jeans from JustBecause.

Most of my kitties are now over 120 days old and no longer breedable except for the remaining 2 pairs of Toyger Tans Kittycats. Above is another pose by [evoLove] and Moon is wearing Undone Top by Neve from the same event. The hair is from Diva! and the necklace from Maxi Gossamer.

And Jinx has a texture Hud for your Water Horse Bento Riding Horse out at the Liaison Collaborative called Country Mane where the horse's mane is plaited into a diamond-shaped net. You also get to add daisies on the plaited mane and the forelock.

Pretty don't you think? In the 2 picture above, Moon is wearing the very lovely flower head accessory called Bagatiba by LODE at this month's Chapter Four. This is a Gacha item. The hair is from LittleBones and the dress is from Schadenfreude.

Here's a close-up:
I'm using eyes from Mesange, Monica skin from Deetalez, Lelutka Simone Bento Head, BentBox Sylvan Bento Ears and Maitreya Lara Mesh Body.

Jackie Maine

Today is all about Jackie Maine.

I am so enamored of Jackie Maine, my bento riding Water Horse. She has a closet full of 'dresses' and Jinx has given a free flower 'dress' for the bento riding horse at the Water Horse Creator Fair. This 'dress' is actually from a HUD and if you've bought her other Fantasy Horse Markings, you'll be able to use this free HUD. For a clearer picture of this free Flower Power HUD, check out her flickr.

These pictures were taken at the Calas Galadhon sims. There is even a rideable demo of the bento riding horse and you can try it here.

Water Horse is also celebrating their Riding Horse with a kick-off party and I was there for a while with a whole lot of other horse lovers. I didn't stay long because I also wanted to see the ABC horse racing which was going on at the same time. I didn't know there were horse racings in SL eventhough I've been in SL a long time.

The horses and jockeys flew past me.

There were 2 races. This one was a steeplechase. I had to google. Wiki defines steeplechase as a distance horse race in which competitors are required to jump diverse fence and ditch obstacles. Ok I copy pasted that. All this while I thought it meant the horse was chasing something O.O

Wish You were Here

There were 2 reasons I braved the lag to go to this month's Gacha Garden. One was the Wish You Were Here pose set from Nantra and the other was the French Bulldog Fun in the Sun Frenchies by Jian. I wanted a companion dog which I could walk around with and I won her on the second try. The little Pug beside Moon is another companion dog by Jian I found at a flea market a while back.

Moon is also wearing the latest free group gift from COCO and the recent FLF heart necklace from Maxi Gossamer. I am a sucker for heart pendants.

Did I mention that my desktop died a month ago and I've been on a laptop since then? Which is why I haven't been building. I had ordered a new desktop but I messed up on the graphic card. My son usually does these tech things for me but since he migrated leaving us girls, I've had to figure these things with my also clueless daughters. I actually succeeded in dismantling the out of date graphic card but when I tried to install another graphic card, I found out that it was too big.... So, now I have to go find a graphic card. I might just lug the darn desktop to the shop and just ask them to fit an updated version.

Anyway, not building means I get more time to just explore SL and do shopping and spent more time with my virtual animals.

I got girls for my second round of foals. Above is a Black Percheron. She's already 6 days old

My Gypsy Vanner gave me a Piebald Gypsy Vanner filly.

My Timor Bay Pony gave birth to an Australian Pony lass. She's the chestnut coloured Pony.

And my Percheron gave birth to an Australian Stock Horse! She's another chestnut.

Feels like Spring

This is one of the many pretty hairstyle you can get from Magarita of Truth Hair at Uber this round. I like that it also has daisies which are optional. I chose blonde because I'm into that colour at the moment. Eventhough it's Summer, it feels like Spring. 

I wanted to get the Lexie Hair from Entwined but I'm not a gambling girl. I wanted only the blonde hair and so I searched the Marketplace and found one in dark blonde. 

Uber is 3 years old and as their birthday, they've invited friends to their bash and KittyCats was invited. Of course I had to get them. These 2 cats will even give birth to a special baby the first time.

Above are my furbabies from past years. Aren't they just so adorable in their costumes? I just had to show them off...

A little exploring

If you've missed donating in the RFL cause, it isn't over yet at the RFL Castle, Home and garden Contest.
KittyCats is participating by giving us this megapuss and a mini shoulder puss for a small donation.
I also took some time to explore the sims.
Back home, my horses and ponies had given birth...
My little Boer Pony foal looking just like his daddy.
My big baby Plains_Kaiila looking just like daddy. I seemed to be getting a streak of males.

Bath time

Aren't these puppies adorable? I wasn't planning on playing the gacha at Ephiphany but since it was only 50L a play, I told myself I'd do it twice and on my second draw, I got this rare Doggo Wash from Jian! I'm not a fan of gachas and I'll play it only if I don't mind what I get.
Moon is wearing a short and simple hairstyle from yumyum #85. If you're there, hit the group joiner which is free and get her free gifts in the notice which is the delicious Mango drink Moon is eating.
There is also Watermelon(pic above) and Green Tea too. Moon is also wearing a crocheted top from BUENO which I bought at Collobor88. Not done with shopping, I also bought those pretty Kira bracelets and rings from AvaWay at their Mainstore and eyes from MESANGE at We Love Roleplay.
While I was at the We Love Roleplay event, I also bought new 'clothes' for my Waterhorse, the Crusader Armor set and the pink colored Hud from Jinx. I mean, what girlie-girl wouldn't want to dress up her horse in PINK?

Another day shopping

Sometimes I get upset when I try a demo and my avatar can't fit.
This happens with dresses and hairs. I have to admit, I wanted to wear COCO's clothings so bad, I bought Maitreya's Lara mesh body. Moon is wearing COCO's Ruffled Bra Top and Linen Pants Striped Blue. I have no regrets. Bento is incredible.  Next to Moon is her bento Water Horse Jackie Maine.
Even her ears are bento from BentBox and when she walks, they 'flap' up and down. Hilarious and I love it! On the last day of Hair Fair 2017, I went out and bought Little Bones Naomi and Kendra. I had to tweak Moon's face shape so that it could fit her. Above is Moon wearing Kendra in size M 1.

Moon wearing Naomi hair in size L. The incredibly sexy top is [PUMPKIN] Ruffled Top in Salmon which I bought at Kustom9. Moon is also wearing ADDAMS Ginger Boyfriend Jeans. Around her neck is The Moon and the Stars Necklace from Maxi Gossamer.
The poses I am using are from Le Poppycock Strawberry Sky which I bought at The Chapter Four. Behind Moon is her pet Deliboz Lilith. Lilith is 240 days old. Once the horses and ponies reach 141 days old, they no longer breed and they automatically don't need food! And we don't have to give them a special potion either so that's a definitely plus for my purse. Yay!
This is the best part of the day when I can just watch the sunset and the pets. Jack my Bulldog looks so adorable sleeping on his tummy with his legs all splayed out.

my Pretties

When I am not inspired to build, I like to take pictures of my pets. Here is Moon with Jack the Bulldog and Norita the Scottish Siamese Seal enjoying a lazy Saturday in Sway's FLF Agwe Moon Chair.
Here is Moon giving Jill a little PDA. When I was getting a whole lot of dogs, I had no idea that these Bulldogs would turn out to be my favorite. They are utterly adorable to me. I've never met a real bulldog so I'm not sure if it would still be the same. I've met a real pug and I have to say, I prefer the real one than the virtual one:(

Anyway, I added 2 more horses to my 'stable'. I don't have a stable. I just leave them on a little island next to the treehouse. The white horse is a Gypsy Vanner. I had no idea that when I bought her, she has in her dropdown menu under equipment the unicorn horn. So I am overjoyed that I actually have a UNICORN! Next to her is my Plains Kaiila which I found out at the same time, also have in his equipments, spikes! Now he looks really fierce. My other new horse is the American Paint Horse. I bought him for his colourful markings and the feathers in his tail and mane.

Here is a close-up of my Gypsy Vanner and my Plains Kaiila. Beauty and Beast!

It's no burden when you love them

There is less than a week left to Hair Fair 2017.
Here is Moon with Jackie Maine my bento Water Horse with pretty ribbons and flowers in her mane which I bought from Jinx. Moon is wearing hair from Yse called Favor which I bought at the Hair Fair. I've been looking for hair that can be tucked behind the ears. There is also a hud with 4 slightly different variations.

The necklace and earrings Moon is wearing is a group gift freebie from Heartsdale Jewellery[HJ] which I happened upon when I wandered into SWANK. Today Moon is wearing a different eyeliner and lipstick from the Deetalez Monica makeup HUD for a close-up picture.

My Zebras finally had their baby! It felt like forever waiting for my mare to pop her foal. Unlike my other breedables, the foal comes out live and for the first 3 days, her mother nurses her. I haven't seen any nursing animations and I'm not sure if there are. I'll have to find out.
Moon standing proud next to the mama pony. Since the Zebra markings is only a costume it can't be passed down to their offsprings. They are actually starter ponies and their baby is a Timor Bay mare.

And Baby makes 6.

My KittyCats sleeping on the deck. I haven't forgotten them.

Kristopher and Sadie are awaiting their last baby.

Riding off into the sunset and met the sea....
