    Please be sure to read the rules before you make a form. Once we get enough people to join, we can start.

    Gold Herd -

    This herd is typically more prestigious than the rest. It has been in existence for about one hundred years. Many members boast that they are among the most pure descendants of the original Spanish horses to become feral in the area, and tend to stray away from horses who do not come from nearby. Despite their haughty reputation, the Gold Herd horses are really just like any of the other herds at heart, and simply want to spread their genes and survive.

    Crow Herd -

    The term herd, in this case, is a bit of a misnomer, or at least when one refers to it as a wild herd. Crow Herd is semi-feral, meaning the horses are free to roam and mix with theiry feral counterparts, all while remaining the Crow Nation's property. They are free to gather in corrals that open up into the mustang plains, and may sometimes interact with completely domestic horses and the members of the tribe. Every so often a young horse is taken to be trained and/or sold, and those who are released back with training may be herded up and taken on a ride. Unfortunately, the special treatment that the Crow Herd horses get sometimes has them labelled and called names by the horses with little to no human contact. If they stray from one of the Crow villages, the Crow Herd horses can be easily identified by a branding on their shoulder.

    Lead Stallion:
    Name of horse: Rocky
    Sex: stallion
    Herd: Crowherd
    Age: 4
    Appearance: 15 hands high, grayish/blackish color

    Lead Mare:
    Name of horse: Iris
    Sex: Mare
    Herd: Crow Herd
    Age: 17
    Appearance (markings, body type, height, etc. Colours must be realistic): A sleek tri-colour pinto horse, her tail entirely blonde save for the tips. About 13.3 hands high.
    Personality: Don't let her small stature fool you. Iris is a tough old mare who has seen a fair share of bloodshed in the past, being a retired working mount. She has a commanding spirit and tends not to take a lot of prodding and teasing from others. She isn't exactly someone to anger. Still, she can be quite motherly and kind, especially towards the nearby village's children.
    History: As a six month old filly, Iris was traded into one of the Crow people's herds by the Salish. Once trained and of age, she was ridden heavily for hunting and herding. She continued to do this until the age of 14, when she was injured critically and could no longer by used for work. She is now turned out in the fields permanently.

    Name of horse: Hazel
    Sex: Mare
    Herd: Crow Herd

    Appearance (markings, body type, height, etc. Colours must be realistic): A dark chestnut sabino mare. Stocky, about 14.3 hands high.
    Personality: High strung, wild, and quite stubborn. She dislikes the attention of humans.
    History: Hazel was born completely feral, and was eventually integrated into Crow Herd when she was discovered watching them. She is currently in the process of being broken to lead, but so far the process of doing so has proven to be very difficult.

    Other Herds, Bands, Nomads, Loners, Bachelors, etc. -

    Not all horses belong to the three influential herds; in fact, many belong to small herds known as 'bands', some of them being offshoots of each other. Bachelors, stallions who have no mares, may band together or roam alone, and you may find an occasional mare or two on their own.
