Caballero Adopt Try by wideturn Caballero Adopt Try by wideturn
OMG I am in love! I saw him and had to try <3

this is for ~JNFerrigno's adoptable stallions. [link] # 3 :3

Story:
Jenna had fallen in love with 'Chico' as soon as he came to Moonlight Drive. When She learned she'd be the one to exercise him, she almost fainted. Chico was going to be a Working equitation/trail horse and she was the one who got to work with him. Every morning at around six, she'd saddle him up and take him on long trail rides. She'd work on his patterns in the uneven footing in the fields and then gallop him in between the trees to get him surefooted.
One Day, after an especially long run, Jenna decided to take his saddle off and cool him down by walking through the cool shade of the trees. Not long after she entered the woods, she saw a thread of light weave through the trees up ahead, revealing a small clearing. She urged Chico into a jog and headed towards the clearing. It was a beautiful patch of flowers and sunlight; the grass was soft and there was enought room to dismount and relax for a moment. Jenna got off and took her book out and began to read. Chico grazed lazily by her, munching hungrily at the clover. After a long, drawn out yawn, Jenna heard him plop to the ground to take a short nap.

Lovely picture, I hope you don't mind if I give a small critique. Overall it is extremely beautiful, and I have nothing to pick for anatomy but one thing that has always bugged me if that for your mane/tail/forelock highlights you just do a straight line all the way across, at your level you definitely could get off of doing that and highlighting individual strands. I think in this particular piece the neck has too many wrinkles where it meets the shoulder, but that might just be me. I love everything about the face though, same with your last Leia picture, especially the eye. :)

Damnit! xD I wanted to be the first owner of a PRM horse on the HARPG. Oh well. I've been saying I'm importing some for over a year, so it's as if I shotgun'ed them, haha.

Nice pic. It's good to see more Iberian breeders/owners! :D
