Horse of Another Color

Horse of another color

Most girls go through that “Horsey” phase. Some of us… never grow out of it.  I remember happily cutting out every picture of horses I found and pasting them in an old photo album when I was a kid. That album was my pride and joy. You know…. now that I think of it, all my horses here in Second Life are kind of like that old album. But these guys are much more fun!

Horse of another color

Good ol’ Jack has a shiny new coat thanks to one of my favorite shops; The Flying Pony. This beautiful ebony coat is “Echo” and I picked it up for free by stalking the Lucky Chairs.  The coat features two hind socks and a little star marking. The build of the coat is just gorgeous and Jack looks amazing. All you need to do is join the free Flying Pony Group and have some patience and a little luck.

“Echo” is available for The Water Horse Riding horse as well as the Teegle Avatar and the Teegle Animesh pet horse. BUT… Echo will only be around for a limited time as a free Lucky Chair prize so don’t delay!!

Free Lunch

Free Lunch

I got up this morning and found that Fergus – that naughty horse – had vanished! I searched all of his favorite landmarks, and finally found him not only making himself at home at Sol Farm but also helping himself to a free lunch.

And in true Fergus form, it looks like he’s making some new friends along the way, lol! 🙂

New Gift From The Painted Pony

The Painted Pony is one of our favorite stores for appliers and accessories for the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. Earlier this week, they sent out a gift to group members: the Island Pony “Summer Bay” Coat Applier. Fergus (above, left) managed to slip his on before he slipped out of his stable this morning.

To grab your gift, join The Painted Pony’s in-world group and download the attachment from the notices.

NOTE: Gifts for The Painted Pony group members are only sent out in notices, and will only be available for 14 days until the message falls out of notices. Group gifts are NOT available in the store, so please don’t go looking there!

(That said… there are a couple of completely free, non-group gifts available in the store, including a box of demo textures and the Crispin coat applier that we shared in THIS POST RIGHT HERE.)

Not sure how to use a coat importer? Just wear your Water Horse and it’s texture HUD, and then rez the coat importer on the ground. Click the coat importer and it will automagically install the new coat in your HUD. You can find it by opening the texture HUD, selecting the desired body part (in this case, the body), and clicking the “Imported” button. Your new texture will appear in the slider; click to select. And… voila! 😀

As a side note, be sure to check out the Water Horse Creator’s Faire going on through the end of August at the Water Horse Mall. It’s a great opportunity to see what various vendors have for sale for your horse, and a few of the vendors even have gifts and gachas available. In fact, if you like the Summer Bay coat, you can pick up additional versions of the Island Pony Coat Applier from The Painted Pony’s gacha machine at the Faire for 100L a pull.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Think About Us Riding Wild Horses

Think About Us Riding Wild Horses

Happy weekend, fabulous readers! Fergus and I went for a lovely ride on the beach at the Cape Florida Lighthouse this afternoon.

We also picked up a few more goodies from The Beached Bunny Hunt 8 (TBBH8), and Fergus even found a freebie for himself along the way (not in the hunt, just to be clear)!

Wild Horses Couldn’t Keep Me Away (From This Hunt)

Our first stop was Sevyn East, where we found the Kendra top as their gift for TBBH8. It includes a HUD with 10 colorful summer textures, and comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS–L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic

BTW, I noticed that their gift from last year’s TBBH7 is still out, so make sure you grab the gift for this year’s hunt. I did that by accident and had to go back to find the right one!

Next, we headed over to Me’LanGe and picked up their gift for TBBH8, which is these Apple-Bottom Dazie Dukes shorts. And ladies, they are most definitely short!

The shorts come as an Omega applier and must be applied in 2 sections, top and bottom. If you are a Maitreya Lara body wearer, don’t forget to add your Omega Relay HUD before trying to apply the shorts (yep, I forgot to do that at first – DOH!).

Just a reminder: all gifts in TBBH8 are 1L each. The hunt runs through July 31st.

And Something for the Horses

As I mentioned, Fergus even found a freebie for himself.  🙂

The Painted Pony has a set out the chestnut-brown Crispin coat applier as a free gift for the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. No group-join is needed. It will work on the draft as well as the light horses.

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Happy Anniversary to the Water Horse Riding Horse!

Shamrocks

Today (March 25th) marks the one-year anniversary of the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse. To celebrate, Water Horse is offering a discount on ALL varieties of the riding horse!

Members of the Water Horse in-world group (free to join) will receive a 25% discount, and non-members will receive a 20% discount on any of the riding horses. Sale prices will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. SLT TODAY ONLY.

In addition, many vendors in the Water Horse Mall have set out special anniversary gifts, so be on the lookout for free gift boxes in their stores (usually purple, but I did find one that was blue). I don’t know how long the gifts will be available, so best to grab them ASAP!

I have to say that I really enjoy my Water Horse Riding Horse. I’ve owned several other horses during my time in SL, but the Water Horse is without a doubt the most realistic and the most fun to ride. If you enjoy virtual horseback riding, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to buy a Water Horse at a fabulous price!

Finders, Keepers… Losers, Weepers?

And sadly, I’m a day late and a dollar short with this post! 😦

Unfortunately, the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt officially ended yesterday (March 24), but… as of the time of this posting, I was still able to find the hunt and discounted items I’m wearing in this photo. Amiable still had their t-shirt gift out, and REIGN still had their booth with the discounted sneakers.

If you want either of these items, RUN, don’t walk over to the stores and grab them before they’re gone!

❤ Serena

Morning Ride

Morning Ride

Happy Friday, fabulous readers!

After spending the last week or so in bed with the flu, I thought it would be nice to take Fergus out for a refreshing ride. After all, he was literally chomping at the bit, so I took that as a not-so-subtle hint on his part. 🙂

Riding Casual

Anyway, today I’m sharing a casual gift from Anny’s Fashion for members of the TeleportHub group. For just 10L, you can join the TeleportHub in-world group and pick up Beatrice Jeans & Tank Top. Sizes include the following…

Beatrice Jeans in Emerald

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Tank Top in Gold & White

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Fitmesh XS-L

Both the jeans and tank top come with an alpha layer for classic avatars.

Click the photo for a larger version. Enjoy!

Oh, What Fun It Is To Ride

Oh, What Fun it is to Ride

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m back in the saddle bringing more awesome gifts for you and your equine buddy!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Brrr, it’s cold on the trail today, but I’m staying warm and cozy in this beautiful coat. The Kabira Coat is the December group gift from Sevyn East and comes in the following sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Tonic

Not only does the coat come in this Christmas-y green color, but with the magic of a texture-change HUD, it also comes in blue, black, and a pretty purply-pink.

Note: the gift I picked up had an attachment problem with the HUD, but hopefully, that is fixed now. If it’s not, just rez the HUD on the ground and make your selection that way. It still works. 🙂

Horsin’ Around

Fergus is back in his horse body today after spending a few days as a stag, and he’s chomping at the bit to share some of his free finds with you:

  • Fergus’s antlers – with holiday ribbons and lights – are a gift from Jinx at The Chapter Four. There is also similar set for “hooomans” in the box.
  • If you have already purchased the Norse Gods Tack Set for your WHRH, there’s a free gift waiting for you at the Jinx store. The Xmas Texture HUD will turn your tack a pretty red and gold with a white blanket. There are versions for heavies as well as WB/QH in the box.
  • The Snowy Hoof Applier is a free gift from CINNAMON. You’ll find this – and several more WHRH gifts – under the Christmas tree at the Water Horse Mall.

 

Oh, What Fun it is to Ride

Another gift from The Chapter Four is this hair from Blossom. The BMGH 02 Xmas Edition hair comes in 6 different colors and includes the Santa hat. It’s not labeled as unisex, but I think this hair could also be worn by fellas who like a longer look. One thing: there appears to be some sort of light built in, which you can see right under my hat where the hair parts. I could not figure out how to turn this off (no mod), but it’s really not a big deal.

My jewelry is a gift from Elle et Lui at The Chapter Four. The necklace and earrings are included. There is no resizer, but you can do a right-click > edit > stretch if you need to change the size.

Finally… my gloves are a gift from E-Clipse Designs. A texture-change HUD is included so you can change the color from black to brown or sand. The gloves are Bento-enabled, so you will need to remove your hands if you don’t want them showing through the gloves. Guys, there is also a version for you, which Carson showed off HERE.

Whew – that’s all for now. Happy trails to you! 😀

Dashing Through the Snow

Dashing Through the Snow

You know the snow is piled high when you have to ride a deer to get around!

Truth be told, I’ve been having so much fun riding around on this sweet, obliging stag that I haven’t wanted to stop. Today, we explored the beautiful forests of IASWAS – Groenland Kangamiut. The sim is full of lovely mountain trails perfect for skiing or sledding… we even saw a few people riding bicycles!

Oh, and I’m keeping him. I named him Fergus. 🙂

What Fun it is to Ride

I’m staying warm on the trail in this cozy, festive coat, which is the latest gift from Rir Life Designs for members of the TeleportHub in-world group.

The White Knitted Coat comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. The Red Fur Collar comes in one size and cannot be resized; however, you can move it around to reposition if needed.

Make Me Blush

The weather outside is frightful… and my cheeks are sporting a delightful blush thanks to a free gift I picked up at Izzie’s.

The Winter Blush Gift comes with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, Slink, and Omega mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars.

No need to join a group. Just head over to the Izzie’s mainstore and click to buy for 0L.

P.S. There are a few more gifts under the tree so be sure you check them all out before you leave. 😀
