A Christmas Gift to a less fortunate child

The goal for Toys for Tots is to collect christmas presents to children who has not have such a good start (mildly speaking). In such cases a christmas gift can be the most important thing in the world. And the feeling that there is people out there who cares.

From Toys for Tots homepage:

“The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted”. – http://www.toysfortots.org/Default.aspx

This year for Toys for Tots ABC will be releasing a new breed the Rocky Mountain Horse:

Toys for Tots is hosting a Breedables Fair & Expo, filled with many amazing SL creators and entertainment. It only takes 500L$ to provide a child with a toy for Christmas. This is the 5th year that the Toys for Tots organization have been active within Second Life. Toys for Tots have been providing children with toys since 1947 and have been run by the United States Marine Core since its beginnings.

The Expo sims will open at 12:00pm SLT November 20th and will close at 10:00pm SLT on November 24th.

It’s the way you ride the trail that counts

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Some trails are happy

Others are blue.
It’s the way you ride the trail that
counts,
Here’s a happy one for you.

My Enchanted Night Mare

Amaretto are a different kind of virtual horse than ABC horses but I like them a lot as it is so exciting to create my “own” horse so to speak. You can choose from multible breeds, colours and stuff. Pretty cool!

I got a lot of strange offspring from my ABC horses for some months now so I have decided to downgrade and work on Amaretto instead. I was inspired when I got a black winged mare. Read the story behind the black winged horse:

“Aganippe “the Mare who destroys mercifully” was an aspect of Demeter. In this form she was a black winged horse worshiped by certain cults. In this aspect she was portrayed as mare-headed with a mane entwined with Gorgon Snakes. This aspect was also associated with Anion (or Arion) whom Heracles rode, who later inspired tales of Pegasus”. ~ Wikipedia

So I will play a little with this Night Mares as I call them. My goal is a black horse with long wild hair and a long up tail. Her eyes will be poison and they will have a skull branding.

Also gloom or blush wild hair and tail so they get a deep black colour. The wing is Indian Corn, a black and red wing. Later on i will implement some hoof colour and ear traits too (and some more traits if possible maybee null luster for example). Isnt she a beauty my little Enchanted Aganippe? Even if she has green eyes. I got a lot of work ahead of me….:
