[Ongoing] Random Theme Challenge
Tilda's all time favorite clothing brand is Marimekko, and particularly their iconic print Unikko – which literally translates to poppy. She loves it so much she even bought some fabric and made it into a saddle pad for her Fjord mare Freyja.

Food. Books. Animals. Flowers.
Those were what Demet considered a daily necessity to be her true happy self; stars twinkling in the night sky and other people close by were a close second but since they'd thrown their money and souls into buying little Foxberry Farm, she'd realized just how simple and happy her life could be. She'd spent her free time trying to save the dying plants only to kill them further with drowning them daily, hanging soft fairy lights around the wooden beams holding the old barns together and purposefully placing her favourite books around the few comfortable resting areas on the farm for everyone to enjoy during their downtime.
Her own downtime was simple and basic; Benedict would humour her awful sense of direction and follow her scrambling up the muddy trail that twisted along the cliff-edge overlooking the calm ocean. She'd been hesitant at first to let her beloved gelding Moose roam free; but he loved the outdoors as much as she did and most evenings they would find him close to the cliff, enjoying the mass of poppies that created a visual happy haven for them. As the sun lowered, Moose would grace them with his presence much to young Poggle's delight whilst Demet would sink her bare feet into the blanket of flowers encasing them and Benedict - he would capture the moments with his precious camera.
Featuring Demet Valentini, Benedict Rosella, Clayton L and not forgetting Poggle the pooch.
Pss Andor and Major CourtlandThey might not have been blood, but they were family, and when the flashes got too much, when the sounds of explosions seemed too real, when the cold hand of guilt threatened to crush her heart with the weight of those left behind, Andor was always there to help Grace shoulder the burden of memory.
Featuring: Wildwood Witch OX, WPW Lamashtu, Kevin Halloran, and Nora Pigott

MOS Chase Me Charlie
Abigail never thought she would have a horse to her self. Even though she had been riding since she was 5, having her own horse seemed far fetched.
Stephanie: Hello, Essex residence?
Stephanie: He'll be delivered later today?
Stephanie: Alright, we'll see you around 3! Thank you, bu-bye!
Stephanie had secretly arranged to have a 4 year old, Quarter Pony brought to the farm. She bought this little guy with the idea of helping Abigail come out of her shell. Abigail has made a large improvement already, and it's just been 3 years. Stephanie thought if there was a horse for Abigail to come home to, it'll be beneficial.
Abigail hasn't gotten home from school yet, which was Stephanie's plan all this time. They unload Charlie without a problem, and plop him in the small pasture next to their house. Even though nothing has been in that pasture before they moved into the house, the pasture was beautifully covered in wild flowers.
Stephanie never imagined how quickly this little pony would settle in. Within a half hour, Charlie was laying flat-out on his side, sound asleep. As Stephanie approached the sleeping pony, he woke up a little. He didn't stand up, he just looked at her, watching her.
This is better than Stephanie could have ever hoped for. This easy going, young pony will hopefully be exactly that this family needs!

YDA Vistosa and YDA Sonadora, two of our lovely Andalusian mares.
Each evening at approximately 19:45, Sonadora and Vistosa gallop through a field thick with poppies. We assume, in hopes of meeting the evening train, which adventures to France and back to Italy. Their desire for adventure sparks at 19:25 when the distant sound of the rattling train echoes through the mares meadow. It may seem strange that out of a herd of five Spanish mares, only these two are put in the train's enchanting trance. Perhaps though, there is something more to the train that seems to call their names. We may never know. But in the least we value 19:45 to be a sacred time for these two Spanish beauties to stretch their legs and race into the sunset.

The Boss

Aww mann, i was hoping that i could make it to the poppy theme. but oh well, boss.... Hm, might have an idea
Chase looks at the security footage and sighs calling Allie in. "We have an issue!"
Allie walks into the office pushing her hair out of her face. "You find out who tore our barn to pieces? I have not seen this kind of damage by a coon or possum before"
He looks at her unamused before looking back at his computer with a glare "I am going to geld that spotted rat of yours. He prances around here after we close the barn like he owns the place."
Allie tilts her head some "We have six spotted butts around here you could threaten to geld. Who could possibly get out?"
Chase growls some "That spotted butt you just had to have. You know the one. The rat who hates everyone but you and thinks he is the boss"
She watches him with amusement "Well that could be Max, Dandy, Prince or King. Take your choice."
He prints out the photo for her "Buy a new lock for his stall door. A floor lock as well as a top lock. Or I'll change our entire barn to accommodate him."
She takes the photo and laughs. "Yes Prince is the boss around here. At least he did not breed your sweet mare." She laughs again walking out tisking to the stallion in his stall across the way
Chase however starts looking at new stall designs. muttering about how maybe a cage stall would suit the spotted rat better.
You may think you're the one in charge here... but it's just an illusion. Just an illusion.
A few days ago the night was so warm so all our horses were in the pasture. Unfortunately, at some point, a thief wanted to steal one of our mares.Luckily, he chose the leader of the pack.Moments later, she overtook the thief from the pasture and showed him who is the boss.
“At Agizmo, I'm the puurfect boss around here!"

"Rachel, we really need a better means of testing new horses than just throwing Meredith on their back and seeing how she gets on."
"She seems to enjoy it, and I'd rather her daredevil sessions were supervised than she takes it out on the cross country course."
The chain of command at Vanaheim is a little strange. To an outsider, it's clear that Rachel is the boss and matriarch of the yard, but some might consider the dressage lead, Aaron Smith to be her right hand man, but in fact, it's Meredith 'Merry' Deacon, who never feels quite alive unless she's flirting with death.
