Apologies for dropping off the face of the earth for a while, I had a really stressful college project to get through and it really drained me of all enthusiasm for anything else. I'm really pleased with how it turned out though so I'll hopefully get a post on that up soon.
In the meantime, I have some new tack and accessories to show off as well as a new Julip or two... :P
I bought this lovely Irish Draught as part of the last batch of spares produced under Annabel (The Originals side of Julip is now under new management) and as he is just the most gorgeously shaded buckskin I couldn't resist. I named him Kenway after the protagonist of the latest Assassin's Creed game (which is brilliant by the way, I'd heartily recommend it) and love him to bits.
I added a freezemark to him - JI 13 - as the money I used to pay for him was earned through my very first bit of paid employment at 'Justin Illusions' where I worked for a few days several months ago making giant prop clouds for a theatre production. XD I'll post about that too soon enough, it was great fun!
Alas, since these photos I managed to get a spot of glue on his nearside barrel which has taken some paint off and since his colour is so difficult to match, he's not looking especially happy right now, sorry pony! :(
Another new arrival to EAE came in the form of a lovely little dalmation from the first batch of spares of Laura's reign at Julip. I was really skint so I couldn't afford a horse or pony but a dog was definitely within my budget! He doesn't have a name yet so any suggestions would be welcomed.
Here he is with Lily, my other dally. I love that they are a little different in terms of size - it's one of the things that makes Julips so endearing - no two will ever be exactly the same!
If anyone is interested in getting a Julip when the next batch goes up, keep your eyes peeled on the facebook group as until the website goes live in the new year, that is where they will be found. :D
