As a proud dA noob I must say- this is the first contest HARPG-like I've ever taken part in. HENCE THE DORKY BACKGROUND but I like that rock. It rocks. (Where's my Pun of the Year award?)


EB Riderless Hunting Competition

Name / YCS Marchio
ID / F - 131
Age/ 4
Gender/ Stallion
Roll list/ sta.sh/01qkuad1vjec



----------------------------------------------------------------------


He had to admit he wasn't quite the feral horse himself.

Macci had been more than lost when Liam, his current handler, took the halter off his eager head and caressed his head, urging him to go on. "Come on, laddie- show 'em how do we handle shows". Shows, huh? Sorry, but this didn't look like a 'show' at all. Where were all the other horses? And why was he naked?! Oh god, this didn't feel right without a warm saddle on his back nor his dear Liam there to guide him. He was getting his hooves dirty, and his hair was all let loose. Gosh, it got into his eyes all the time- why wasn't it braided like usually?

Taking careful steps into the glade, he let himself calm down a bit, allowing the scent enter his nostrils. Ah, yes, he knew this scent- the same morning breeze that filled his nose back at home, in their tiny isle. He used to love strutting on the still wet grass when even the sun wasn't fully awake. That brought so many memories...including the ones where his mother was still present. Macci suddendly shivered, shaking his neck and puffing in melancholy. He certainly missed her fluffy golden fur and her gentle 'mom kisses'.

The young hare that popped its head out of the grass was what brought the stallion back to reality. He stood there, barely meters away from it, without realizing what he had to do. Once the hare smelled the danger and took its fly off the ground, the Ballator's instincts clicked, and did what he was born to do: run.


Suddendly, everything made sense in his mind- run! Of course! It was what he did all the time and what he loved doing. And not talking about when he got treats because of running. He felt amazing now- focusing on the tiny prey he was supposed to- no, that he WANTED to catch, he picked up his pace. It didn't matter how fast the thing was or how closed the curves were- he was used to that. Colt's play, he thought.

The usually tidy, elegant youngster was turned into a muddy vicious mess- and not even the now rocky scape the hare had drove him into was going to stop him. Coming to a dead end in the form of a sharp, protruding rock, the adrenaline in both animals made their bodies go to the utter limit. The tiny rodent, in an attempt to save its life, pushed itself upwards in a magistral leap-

Just at the height of Macci's head.

Time had seemed to stop- and in a milisecond, the stallion jerked his head down and threw it up again while he followed the jump- stabbing the critter in its gut and making it lose its balance. The loud crunch of a mighty jaw giving the fatal blow was the last thing the forest heard that day.

Well, he maybe was a feral horse after all.



--------------------------------- EXTRA ---------------------------------



As soon as he realized what was in his mouth, the dangerous-deadly-predator mode vanished, showing the 'true' Macci once again.

It was weird indeed seeing a grossed out stallion return to the starting line rolling a dead disemboweled hare on the floor.









Art, Macci Enharmonia

I love how everyone has all these neat freak stallions.... Duas Sortes culdn't give a fuck if he gets muddy.... he enjoys being a butt and making his handler give him a bath right after they finished the last one... at least when he's his bad side...
Reply
:iconenharmonia:
Enharmonia Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Yes, Duas' is the normal stallion behaviour I'd say :D But Macci has been a bit of an stable-spoiled-kid so he isn't used to hunt his own food. Always gets everything done.

:iconsilentshewolf:
SilentSheWolf Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014  Student General Artist
lol Duas is far from the normal stallion... but he may be like others in that aspect... but having MPD makes him a crazy ass horse. 

I think it'd be cool to have a neat freak, perhaps on my new girl which I named Sanguinis in Nix meaning blood on the snow

OMG DONT TELL ME YOUR STALLION WAS THE ONE STABBED IN THE BELLY.
The buck was too big so I guess he has to roll. But ol' Macci here is too exquisite to carry something dead in its mouth. :'D

Yeah, Rum is my babeh and he got his gut turned into a pincushion.
He ate some but yeah, he'll be pushing that thing for a while.
Rum just doesn't like getting dirty.
