I can't wait to start this challenge with you guys! I will post the original rules soon.
Let's get started shall we?
Jackson and Delilah pulled up onto their new home lot in Appaloosa Plains. Jackson's parents used to have a breeding ranch, but a tornado came through one day, destroying the barn, and killing most of the horses. The only one that survived was Delilah and she still barely did. They asked Jackson to take Delilah and rebuild their horse breeding legacy, as they didn't think they could do it anymore. They grew old and soon passed on. Jackson now knew he had to start this challenge that his parents left him, and hope he could complete it. (plum story, I know. That actually happened near me though before. A horse ranch got blown into by a tornado, it tossed the horses around and there were dead horses on the roads afterwards. Most of them survived somehow though.)
I tried to get him to take off her saddle because I wanted you guys to see her markings more clearly, but he just decided to morph into her front leg...
He decided he would spend some time bonding with the young horse before he even dared to mount her. His parents had told him that she was gentle and kind, but he still wasn't so sure.
Than Bramble sped by us. We barely had any money btw... We were pretty much broke.
He remembered a little bit of his parents training when he was a kid, so after a little while of gaining her trust he mounted. He sat up straight, thinking this wasn't that hard.
That is until she started actually moving. Then his eyes blew up like balloons. Lol
They stopped by the festival, so that he could pick flowers and hopefully earn some money for a stud fee.
He tied her up at a post and looked so pleased with himself afterwards. He was probably thinking about how he couldn't believe he still remembered to tie that particular knot.
You should always stop and smell the daisies!
He seemed a lot less unsure this time as he remounted her to head towards the Equestrian Center.
They were getting really close. I could practically hear Jackson sigh with relief. He didn't have to be in this hard saddle for much longer!!
When they got there he readily went into the center.
It was a success. If I remember correctly, she was bred to Bolt! (Sorry, it was Bolt, not Breaker. XD Breaker was an option that I was considering however.)
It was a nice summer night, so he decided to walk Delilah home. (I think he was just tired of being a saddle and possibly still scared. LOL)
It was late when they got home, so he just decided to scatter some hay for Delilah before eating himself, and then going to sleep.
All he had time for was grabbing some juice before exhaustion completely set in.
He slept pretty soundly that night. His day of learning new things had tired him out.
She got her pregnancy notice while she was sleeping! Yay! Foal #1 is on its way!
Jackson woke up soon after her. His eyes groggy with sleep as he walked out of the house, looking for the noise that woke him.
He soon found the source of the noise, a crow. He smiled as he looked at it. "Might as well have another animal." He muttered to himself as he stretched his hand out invitingly.
Don't ask me about his face in this one. I have no idea...
He pet the crow on his arm before sliding it into a makeshift cage and running back towards the house for some breakfast.
While he glanced at pregnant Delilah, he thought about the next sire. He thought and thought before finally coming to a plan, now to put it into action.
He took his phone out of his pocket and called the pet adoption agency, looking for a stallion. They informed him of a mixed black and white stallion. He agreed and hung up. He put his phone back into his pocket, and raced out to buy Rin (The crow) a cage, and also to pick more flowers at the festival.
Rocket soon arrived and walked into the yard. He glanced around, his eyes landing on Delilah who was playing with the horse ball.
Delilah saw him at about the same time and wasted no time going to get to know him. Could something happen between them?
Rin in his new cage.
Shep running by us. I love Shep! He is so precious and is like a neighborhood dog, he is always everywhere!
Delilah looks so smug in these two pictures.
Oopsie-Daisy and BaBa Marshall playing. (I think that are their stupid names.)
Really showing that you are a bachelor Jackson... Disgusting..
He broke the toilet on his second time using it...
His face when he broke the toilet was hilarious however. LOL
I just had to include this. She is so gorgeous. I made her custom and I am just so happy at how she turned out. This was my first time making a fully custom horse and I am quite pleased with her.
I really hope you guys enjoyed!
