    { St. Patrick’s Day }
    8℃, cloudy; 11:03 AM; Bordeaux, France

    Valentia CX & Victoria W.


    Perhaps the date might have merited greeness on Lena’s behalf. (She oftentimes pretends to forget how to behave and revels in acting like a foal, all too selfish and clueless to care.) Tori prayed to God that this wasn’t one of those times.

    Apparently this is part two of the dark-horses-jumping-from-the-right-side-with-greenery-around-them-and-cloudy-weather set. (Oops.)

    (Also, please do be sure to check under the spoiler of the replies post from before!)

    @Emilia-Fox you can't stop doing something you aren't doing! :smirk: i was also going to write you some lamb puns just now but they're too shameful, so i won't. it's the thought that counts?

    @Rena-Cort yea and what about it? :kissing: :sparkles:

    @Mira-Green + @Annalena-Voigt thank you both!!

    @Nicole-Loeffler don't even get me started on how far behind i am on your blog; it's more than shameful so let's pretend that i'm on top of commenting and that everything is fine. anyhow. your :sob: comment :sob: made :sob: MY :sob: day :sob: how dare you??? that really means a lot and i'm unworthy—thank you. :sparkling_heart: :revolving_hearts: :heartpulse:

  • Your pictures are so smooth - edited and unedited - and you capture such beauty in them with the colours, angles and lighting and its just gorgeous :heart:

    The way you edit hair is so realistic and soft and it just flows. I really love your pictures and of course your horses. Valentia has the cutest dapples :heart_decoration:

  • i want to hear the puns so badly. please me.

    Now let‘s talk about the picture. It‘s simply super pretty. :heart_exclamation: :heart_decoration: :two_hearts: Valentinas coat is so beautiful as all of your coats. :pray_tone1: Her hair is so soft and ALL of your horses have cute faces, how is this possible!! :sob: the colors are also :100:, you always find the right angle and the right matching colors ahhhhh :eyes::ok_hand_tone1: I hope she did well in the course, please give her some :carrot::carrot::carrot:...

    It's been a long three months.

    @Jasmine-Wilkinson thank you so much, again! i usually have no idea what i'm doing—the post that will follow this is proof—but i'm glad it looks presentable, and maybe even a little artistic. as for lena, she's quite important to me and to the story, so she'll definitely be back soon!

    @Emilia-Fox first: no. second: thank you!! she won second place and will be duly given her carrots. :blush:

    @Rena-Cort banned.

    @Therese-Lind aw, thank you! i could say the exact same right back at you about all of your pretty pictures. :heartpulse:

    I did really good on my new years resolution right? Let's just pretend that it's still January and that I'm not a total failure....please I'm just a really really forgetful person and a little crazy, well more than a little but I'm super sorry! :joy:I love this little blog so much, its super inspiring and one of my favourite places on equus to visit and it kind of feels good that its only January and I have the whole year left, I can accomplish so much!! :grimacing: :sparkles:

    may the flowers remind us why the rain was so necessary

    { }

    I love LOVE this picture, it's so peaceful and speaks to me in so many ways and the mare is just so dreamy, I think I may have found another favourite horse although Morgana has still stolen my heart! :heartpulse: :sparkling_heart:

  • Replies!

    I'm awful and slow but you all knew this already. The next (real) post is in the works, and it's fairly long and content-heavy compared to my usual drop-a-picture-and-run method. :pray:

    @Kára-Evans + @Vera-Alvarez + @Lauren-Goldtree thank you!!

    @Annalena-Voigt a lot of time my color palettes are very happy accidents, but this one was intentional and i'm glad you noticed it! thank you for your continued support!! :tulip: :heartpulse:

    @Elizabeth-Hall first: I'VE BEEN MEANING TO COMMENT ON YOUR BLOG FOR AGES BUT I'M SLOW AND AWFUL. I'M VERY SORRY FOR THE DELAY. second: thank you so much! that's exactly what i was going for. am i a genius yet? :kissing_heart:

    @Jill-Hendricks thank you! i like to wonder how the photographer took this shot (and most of my other jumping shots, for that matter). i imagine them lying on the floor, waiting for The Moment to take the shot, and then scrambling to the next jump to lie on the floor to wait for the next Moment all over again. it's probably not very safe.

    @Ashton-Mills i repeat: i'm awful and slow! seriously though, thank you so much!!!

    @Rena-Cort nothing's stopping your pixels from doing the same :kissing_heart:

    @Maya-Lilly that was the comment i never imagined i'd get

    @Tasha-White said in Casteleaux and Quincetree Archives {June 10th}:

    it kind of feels good that its only January and I have the whole year left

    I TOO AM VERY GLAD IT'S STILL JANUARY. i have twelve whole months left to comment on your blog! and also congrats on keeping your resolution. it takes strength :pensive: :pray: :sparkles:

    thank you so much, as always, though! :sparkling_heart: i know that everyone can definitely agree that you're a tremendous-fantabulous-spectacular-amazing inspiration, so your comments mean so much to me. :revolving_hearts: :relieved: :heartbeat: you should stay tuned for the next post, though. i know you've already seen it on tumblr but it's got a liver chestnut arabian whose name starts with an M and ends with an A. :grin:

  • Development Committee

    Okay so I am a month or 5 late but let's ignore that and let me give you this long ass comment that you'll only get once or twice a year. :imp: It's beginning now okay. Here's a little treat for you :strawberry:

    I. Lambretta AT
    asdhdfhggkafrikkinhell you crazy girl. The colours. The mood. The mane and tail. The freakin' pedigree for that mare. You're a lucky kid. I'm officially envious of you, of everything. :sparkles:

    II. Greenness
    Wow. I could barely say that word title thing out loud. Seems like someone is tired today :face_palm: Can I just say, I absolutely love the layout you have going on there? I just think it's so awesome to hear small details like weather and location, makes me cry it's so cute 😭 And Victoria is so cute, I love her face and her little flying hair details. Omg. How do you even think about all these little details, like weather, placement of those lovely tree bushes things and you even remembered stirrup leathers!! I can barely open my game, put on my reshade, pose a horse, take the picture and post the damn thing. I can never think of small details like that!! ugh. Your pictures are so well done and I just love all these little details you put into your posts and pictures. Over to Valentia: Holy wow. her coat is just stunning, she is a true beauty. I just love everything about her. And she just reminded me, you promised to make me a horse around Christmas time because I had too little horses back then :angel: you should definetly do a late christmas present for me now instead!! Don't go look for Valentia in my stable if she suddenly goes missing btw. :eyes:

    III. Travel
    this one is just truly the cherry on top :cherries: Have I ever told you about my passion for France and the language? I barely know some words, but I absolutely love France and the sound of their language. There's just something about this country that makes me want to pack my bags and just live there forever. I've always wanted to visit Paris but I think I'm one of the few that hasn't yet just because of my fear of flights. :airplane: Anyway, I just love how you put the eiffel tower in the background and the birds. I just love the atmosphere in this picture, the colours just give me this calm and safe, still romantic mood. How can you be so creative?! And Emmaline is so cute, is she french? She should meet my frenchie, Emeline, they'd be besties with those cute names!! :hugging:

    I've been screaming so much through these gorgeous pictures of yours and suddenly my eyes just fell out and my jaw is broken!! You broke me with all of this beauty...😭 I just love your editing and the mood in all of your pictures. They just.. always leave me speechless. It literally took me almost an hour to write this little thing because I had to find back my words no alexa, I was not building my new facilities while writing this. I really did spend a lot of time on this comment and only because I was speechless. Okay jokes. but really. I actually spent time on this and it DID make me speechless. Even when I was building at the same time. Anyway, I just love your style as I mentioned hundreds of times now. It's perfect. And I want to be as skilled as you! Can we please just switch skills?

    I'll stop writing now, otherwise this post will end up being enormous. Just know that I love everything okay :heart:
