    SkyHerd is simply a herd of wild horses that roams the prairie. They occasionally encounter two other herds, WindHerd, and FireHerd. The stallions are fierce and will do anything to protect their mares.
    NOTICE: Here are the times it takes to get to other places on the map from Skyherd:
    Windherd: About two hours
    Fireherd: About an hour
    Shadowherd: About 1 hour 30 minutes
    Rainherd: About two days
    Songherd: About 1 1/2 days
    Road: 20 minutes
    Human Farms: 35 minutes

    Recent News: Flip KNOWS something that could change the future of the herds forever... what does he know??

    The lead stallion and mare MUST be mates.
    Lead Stallion:
    Flip is a dun Arabian stallion, dark yellow with a black mane, tail, and feathers masking his brown, shod hooves. A white star brightens his scalloped forehead and a brown stripe traces his spine. He is quiet, thoughtful, yet has a surprising flair to his normally calm spirit when his control is called for. His pride in SkyHerd cannot be masked, and neither can his silent grieving at some unknown tragedy. Flip was originally the owner of a little girl, but when they had been together only a few years she died from leukemia. As he was being loaded into the horse trailer to be taken to a new home, he bolted for the woods and was not caught. After he found Silver, became her mate, and fathered Levi, he created SkyHerd and chose a few miles of quiet meadow for the herd to wander in. As he only narrowly escaped being gelded, Flip is very proud of his offspring and jumps at the chance to mate any mare who is willing. This also whets the flame in his spirit to kill any stallion who seems to intrude into his herd or steal his mares. A few stallions - he's more likely to accept his own sons, but he often lets others in the herd - are allowed in, but not many. - Dutchgirl

    Lead Mare: Silver: She is a beautiful pearlescent white Leopard Appaloosa, with round spots of starkly contrasted black scattered across her body, each framed in a ring of gray. Most of her spots accumulate along her back and rump, and they are smaller, more scattered spots on her shoulders and chest. She has a naturally rippled mane of white, streaked with black and gray. None of her markings are symmetrical or uniform in nature, except for her black 'socks' that reach her fet-locks and ankles. Her tail is white at the very base, with the rest of it being a satiny, smooth black, and the hair is so long that it nearly touches the ground. Endearingly soft and tender eyes of icy blue look at you with genuine concern and care. She is a spirited, fun-loving, and enthusiastic individual, and she is also very empathic, and optimistic. She cares deeply for her herd, and treats it with the same motherly protectiveness as she would give to her child. Her parents escaped their filthy home to live in the forest, and her mother, Pearl, became impregned and birthed Silver in the wild. Nearly a year later, a hiker saw some feral horses in a field from nearby mountains and reined them before returning them back to their careless owners, but Silver was instructed by her mother to hide when the man came, so she was not taken with them because her mother thought that life in the wild would be better for her. She soon discovered Skyherd, where she then fell in love with Flip and they became the head pair of the herd. She still misses her parents today, but is thankful she was not captured and taken with her parents to the home that her mother spoke so badly of. -BirdNut

    All mares are brood mares and may become mothers at any time. [​IMG]
    Mares:

    Viola – a young, small Paint mare, pinto, white with reddish-brown splotches. She has a sweeping red mane and tail and a reddish nose. A typical teenage girl, she’s just out of foalhood and has a fiery, sarcastic personality. Flirts with young, handsome stallions but despises Flip; she’s willing to mate with the younger males, but she rejects and is rebellious toward Flip. Viola escaped from an abusive owner after being forced to breed too young. Her foal was sickly and died soon after birth – this is one of the reasons she doesn’t want to breed with Flip. No family. - Dutchgirl

    Shadow, a Gypsy Vanner mare with black and white patches over her whole body, with a black mane, white tail, and white "feathers" around her hooves. She is very kind to other horses, sweet, and very giving. She is an ex-dressage horse, as her owner dumped her. A few weeks later she found the group of horses (in which now she lives.) No family... - DuckLover179

    Twilight is an Arabian, buckskin with a yellowish-gold body, pure black mane and tail, which are both very long. She bears black stockings that go about an inch above her fetlocks, a gray muzzle and ears, and inky black eyes. She was born into a wealthy, pure-bred Arabian family. Originally from Arabia, her owners traveled to America for dressage competitions. One night, after a very long day of traveling, while she was asleep, Twilight was stolen away and sold to an abusive owner, who only used her for useless things. After 2 years of living with her cruel master, she escaped and lived roaming in the wild for 3 months before finding SkyHerd. She is sweet, calm, quiet horse, yet she can and will defend herself and others when the time comes - although it doesn't look like should could, as she is so frail from being almost starved to death. Twilight is very thoughtful and comes and goes out of the SkyHerd meadow, but always sleeps with the herd. She enjoys being with the foals in the herd. She often wishes she had a special "someone" in her life, though doesn't show it. A light Arabian accent still lingers in her voice. Somewhat of a loner, she is still a mystery to SkyHerd. - chickendiva25

    Dahlia - A beautiful show quality black Arabian mare who often holds her tail high. Though short tempered, she's considerate of other's feelings and generally friendly. Although, she isn't one who should have her buttons pushed. The mare lived at a rich, snooty stable with her mate, Bucephalus. She was often ridden western style and won plenty of blue ribbons, losing only three times. One day while grazing with her mate in an outdoor pasture a grass fire started and burnt down everything, including her paddock. A huge blaze hit a line of nearby trees and surronded the two. While she was spooking, Bucephalus offered that she jumped on top of him to escape, and he would figure somthing out for himself. Reluctantly, she did just that and left him there, hoping he could actually get out in time. She kissed him goodbye and fled to the prarie where she found the herd. -Zinnia-Hen

    Dusty: A beautiful Plains zebra/Chestnut tobiano Gypsy vanner Zorse who is mostly white with patches of rich tawny along her back and one hindlimb, which contain stripes of black within them from her zebra lineage. Her hooves are ivory, with fetlocks that are faintly etched with black striping, which overlays her stockings of white. She has a smooth, velvety pelt, a short, bushy white mane, and a mask of rust with an elaborate labyrinth of stripes. Her endearingly innocent eyes are chocolate brown. The 'bangs' that hang down the side of her face have a wavy, rippled texture from frequent braiding.

    Sienna is a tri-colored Gypsy Vanner mare. She is the responsible, loving, babysitter-type that loves foals and respects her elders. Sienna was born on a Gypsy Vanner farm. As a weanling, there was a fire at her home and everybody else died, but she she got away and is now wild. No family yet! - DuckyGurl

    Emery: Sentence in progress. [​IMG] - Dutchgirl


    There are few of these in the herd, as Flip kicks most of them out.
    Stallions:

    Ace is a clydesdale stallion, who grew up on a breeding farm, pulling carts with his mother and father, but after a cart accident he was able to free himself, and ran away to the SkyHerd. He is dark bay with white hocks, and black tail and mane. He is a very friendly stallion, but is very shy because he wasn't around other horses much. - DuckLover179

    Rocket is a Belgian mix white horse with black hocks. He was born in the wild, but his parents dumped him. He is a very sweet horse, and dreams to have foals of his own. -DuckLover179


    Adam is a very sweet paint stallion. He looks much like this: http://www.paintedblackhorseranch.com/images/twister.jpg
    He
    admires all other horses, and looks up to them. He was born in the wild with abusive parents, and ran away to a foster mother. Once he was finished nursing he found SkyHerd. - DuckLover179

    Aaron: Sentence in progress. [​IMG] - Dutchgirl

    Peter: Sentence in progress. [​IMG] - Dutchgirl


    These are the young ones of the herd.
    Foals:

    Terry-Is a white and red Paint colt. He is white with red splotches along his back and sides, a red face with a white star. He is energetic but rather silent, opens up when he gets to know someone better. However, he prefers to bounce around and try to use actions to communicate instead of words. His parents are Phil and Hapila, who were captured and tamed by humans. So he is essentially an orphan. - ember.opal

    Levi is a dapple gray colt, Arabian x Appaloosa. His mane and tail are a creamy-grayish-white color, as are his legs below the knees. He is shy and quiet and, as Flip says, "doesn't have all the stars in his sky". Edgy around other horses, especially foals and stallions, he avoids them at any cost, as he's used to being teased. Levi isn't all right in the head and isn't capable of comprehendable speech, often resorting to nonsense to communicate. His best word is "Leaf-i" - his name. He was born in SkyHerd, out of Ivy by Flip, and his brother and sister are Dappledsnow and Achillia. He is Flip's pride and joy, despite his disabilities. - BirdNut

    Dappledsnow - an older colt, white with black spots along his back. Arabian x Appaloosa, he has a brown mane and tail streaked with white, and a black spot on his forehead. He is playful and brave, although being young, his personality is hard to determine. Out of Ivy and by Flip, he is Levi's brother and Achillia's twin. - Dutchgirl

    Rosie: a blue roan Scottish Mining Pony filly. She is brown in the summer and winter and white in the spring and fall. Her head, mane, tail, and feet are brown year-round. She is a total snot, a little spoiled brat who acts like she's older and in charge -- absolutely adorable, too. Being so small and knobby-kneed, she makes everyone fall in love with her cuteness. She's a total diva, who thinks she's just as big as everyone else (or bigger). Because she was such a hassle to train, she is unridable and doesn't know how to pull a cart. Basically, her owners called her "Yard Candy". Then her ranch caught on fire and she found Skyherd. - FarmCoe

    WindHerd
    Lead Stallion: Dax - A brave ruler, strong in his herd. He is a large gray draft horse of mixed breeds. He does not fully trust any member of his herd, even his deputy. Dax firmly believes in communism. He has no lead mare, because he figures that all mares should be lowest in the herd.

    Deputy: Lorcan - A white Dartmoor pony, large and muscular for his breed. Has killed many stallions for Dax, but plans mutiny for some day in the future.

    Here is some information on ShadowHerd so I don't forget.

    Leader:
    Jingo- A black-and-white spotted Paint mare with a long white mane and a black tail. She has a fiery spirit, she has a good heart but it his hard to break through the shell to see that side of her. She was born wild and joined the herd, and is a sister to Jet, Chirp, Merry, Pod, Speckle and Hussar. She also has a good understanding of medicines and herbs.

    Warriors:
    Hussar: A dark brown stallion with a black mane and tail, a white stripe down his face and white socks on each foot. Is very easy going and very non-aggressive compared to his brothers, doesn't talk much and usually hangs around with Chirp because she knows him so well that she can talk for him. Is also quite shy around strangers but isn't afraid to speak up for his siblings.

    Fritz- A light footed black and white splotched stallion with a proud, high stepping gaint. He can be very tempermental depending on the situation and could be spitting with fury one minute and soft as a kitten the next, never really showing his true emotions.

    Jet- A huge, pitch black stallion that stands over 17 hands high. He is a large build and can take on even the largest horses. His twin sister is Jingo and often takes part in making decisions that would affect the herd.

    Chirp- A usually friendly dark brown mare with an odd shaped white splotch on her side. Is usually friendly to others but has a mean side to and can get awefully nasty is she has to. Is good at keeping her emotions in check and because of this she often sees the logical side of things. Is a good place to go to for advice.

    Merry- A cold hearted paint mare with a long scar running down her flank. Is very beautiful despite her personality and seems very delicate, she is wickedly fast in battle and unusually agile.

    Pod- A high spirited stallion built similar to an American Saddlebred. He has long, slender and muscular legs that are perfect for kicking and running fast over uneven ground. His coat is brown and white splotched like a paint.

    Jay- Once a rogue she joined Columbia's group before finally finding a home in ShadowHerd. She is small but stocky and never backs down from a challenge. She has a white coat with four black "socks" on her hooves.

    Name of horse: Skypaint
    Gender: Fem
    Foal/mare
    Appearance (markings, etc. Must be a true color.): Gray blue with dark legs and white misting her back. Her stark black mane and tail stand out in contrast to her mild colored coat and her soft brown eyes watch with curiosity.
    Personality: Quiet and shy, she has been known to have a bit of a temper.
    Breed (optional): Blue roan
    History: Skypaint's mother was separated from her herd a week before she gave birth to her daughter.
    Raised without much contact from others of her age and having only her mother, she matured very quickly. But sadly, after an incident at a farmer's field, she lost her mother and the only other horse in her herd. She found Skyherd and is now just starting to learn the ways of herd life.
    Family: None yet

    Gender: fem
    Stallion/Mare/Colt/Filly/Elder: Mare
    Appearance (markings, etc. Must be a true color.): Skittles stands at about 15.2, her long flowing black and white mane and tail giving her a fairytale appearance. Her size and shape stands out from the rest, having been from domesticated stock, she is Piebald with long, heavily feathered legs.
    Personality: Sweet, caring and at times a little too motherly, she tries her best and encourages others to do the same. Has almost no temper, or at least not one anyone has found it yet.
    Breed (optional):
    History: Originally from one of the high end breeders she was sold to a small farm. During her first night there they were hit with monster of a storm and terrified, she and a few other broke free and ran for the hills. The next morning she realized she was alone and while still several months from giving birth, she started desperately searching for her home. Instead she found Skyherd and stayed, feeling safe and secure there.
    Family: Non yet, soon to come.
