I kept seeing pictures of Quincy on discord recently, she's so gorgeous! You somehow manage to put so much different shades and depth into each coat you make, I'd happily steal most of your horses. And she looks so good in the green too <3
He's the odd one out at Iron Crest, Jill didn't really like the look of the gelding at first. It was only for him being Jenna her private horse, he was allowed to stay.Just a year back, he was known as Reversed Flame. A young thoroughbred stallion with lots of potential and a great lineage.Jenna saw the stallion grow up, she was working at a racing stable as groom and amateur trainer at the time. When he reached 2 years old, Jenna followed his training closely. Tried to take care of the stallion wherever she could after his training, she had a weak spot for the weird looking stallion. She was the only one who genuinely liked him. Most people didn't like the look of him with his weird white patches and big white face.
Occasionally, after his training, Jenna took Fireball out for trail rides. Most people didn't know about this, only his main trainer did. He saw no harm in this, Jenna was an experienced rider in general though her experience with race horses was little. There were little problems when she took him out, she wasn't as hard on him as most trainers were. Jenna loved the stallion and took pleasure in riding him after watching his trainings. When his racing days started, Jenna made sure to follow how he did. The potential from his lineage really showed in his racing career, this was only for a short time however.
Just before one of Reversed Flame's bigger races, he injured himself during transport. He was known to be quite spooked and nervous when being hauled from one place to another. He was lucky his injury wasn't major, some bad scratches which would heal propperly and over stretched his tendons. The vet wasn't too worried about healing, but it would take quite some time. Too much for Mr. Hunting to wait for. Even with his already promising results, his owner cared too much about his money "being wasted on that white faced monster" and thus at the age of only 3 years old Fireball would be sold. Mr. Hunting wasn't as heartless however, and knew how much Jenna loved the horse. He knew her well and the two of them were at good terms about Jenna taking the young stallion off his hands.
Fireball still showed his need for speed, Jenna took on training him to start a career in Cross Country, combined with Endurance. The following year, Jenna decided it was better for the stallion to be gelded. Shortly after, she moved jobs and started working for Jill Reyes at Iron Crest Equestrian. A place she felt at home and could work with her own horse, while also working with other people getting them on their way in their careers.
This post featured Jenna Hale, Iron Crest new trainer with her OTTB Reversed Flame, aka Fireball.
Shagaia Nedjari Thank you Shagaia. we're super happy to have her, ofcourse the other riders are a bit jealous of Jill taking on this mare. But most of them get that haha. We're very excited to see what her future brings her!
Calli Rosella Thank you so much Calli! I'm super happy how her coat turned out, I'm more keen on making bay horses then chestnuts especially with this shade haha. I'm excited to show her off more soon!
A first note, I haven't been around much lately. I guess it's because the restart, I'm not fully sure. I haven't done nothing in sims though! I found some pleasure in building, making horses and challenging myself to make some more advanced markings! So, I'll break up this update in some small sections. First my building project, I was planning on maybe a small Haflinger section for Iron Crest agaian. But with the marking making process I switched to something else for this!
Iron Crest's side stable?
As I already said, I've also been working on a small marking challenge for myself. This little project consisted of some appaloosa markings! Now, I'm a boring one who likes to hoard your good old warmbloods so I decided to go with Wielkopolski's. They are not offically registered (yet? Who knows) but for now I can show IRCE Rigor Mortiz, aka Mo, and IRCE Eldorado aka Eli. Mo is a smokey black varnish blanket stallion, Eli is a bay bases fewspot stallion. For these two handsome men, I might soon introduce some lovely ladies.
Mo & Eli
Ian Salvatore Thanks Ian, I had to get out of my comfort zone for him! I had zero experiance with racehorses.
Shagaia Nedjari Thank you Shagaia! I'm super happy with his markings, I believe it's a first time I did some sort of sabino markings for my horses. A little challenge maybe for me, just like the horses featured in this update.
Joshua Ryans Aaahhh!! You don't know how much that comment means to me Joshua! I love all your stuff so much, so your comments really made my day when I read it ;-; This comment did inspire the markings for your Jill import by the way.

She ghosts over all obstacles, slides smoothly & effortlessly.
Together they for a great team. Balanced, light on their feet and most of all never afraid. They are alike, seeming like twins even though they are different a species. Both brave, facing challenges with confidence and effortlessly working their way through. Ashlee and Adelaide, the two of them form an amazing team. Complementing eachother, due to their similarities but also due to their differences. Such a tense young mare changed to be a strong and confident jumper. Together with Ashlee, IRCE Adelaide ghosts over all obstacles, slides smoothlessly & effortlessly.
