I'M ON A HORSE by Spwinkles I'M ON A HORSE by Spwinkles
I know, that title is sooo overused but I am on a horse. D:

OK I was gonna wait till I got more photos from this shoot so I can pick and choose what I want to upload here but I was too exciteeeed so I am posting this right now.

When I made my cowboy!America cosplay, I wanted a cheesy western shoot so bad. I put-putted online a bit to see what's in my area and I stumbled upon the most awesome place called Pioneertown. It's in the middle of the desert in California. It was a town made for western movies in the 1960s.
A few friends and I went on a small road-trip and hung out there for the afternoon. The timing was perfect because a show had just ended and one of the performers was out with his horse! So. PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES GALORE. The guy was super friendly and I learned a few random facts about horses. 8D
This particular horse (his name is Denver~~) has the PRETTIEST blue eyes. You can't see them in this pic--they'll probably be in the other pics!--but I am super jealous of them. They're the color of the sky.

America is such an amazing rider...he doesn't even need the reins, XD

I absolutely love your cosplay. Very well done and the horse is perfect for this; a painted Quarter, yes? He's absolutely stunning, >.<

Of course!

And thanks!
I don't remember what his owner said but that sounds familiar! He was a beautiful horse and had the most amazing eyes~~

Blue eyes in horses is actually a rare feature as it's not a dominant gene. Paints (such as this) do show a dominant recessive trait of having as such. One my my breeding friends actually set up a stock in which only the offspring of either of her stallion or mares would produce two blue eyes or one blue eye. As for the breed of this horse, he does look like a Quarter (judging by his head though I could identify him with his whole body); their disposition is perfect for performing tricks and shows.

Paint horses are perfect for Western based shoots or films, seeing America on one is just totally fitting for him. You make a handsome America~

I had no idea, before I met this horse, that they could have eyes like that! Not that I'm always around horses but I've seen many and never with blue. That's such a cool trait! This horse was in a show when we got to this place so that all makes sense now!
I'm so glad the owner stuck around and let people sit on his horse! xD

Aw and thanks~~!

They really are! One of God's most beautiful of animals~
And that's great--admittedly I never was one of those people to get into horse riding but I can still admire it. And it sounds like you really love it, which is awesome.

I'm working on a cowboy!America outfit myself, and I'm going to so something similar. Where I liv, there's a Western theme park that I work at. Gonna do a shoot there once it's warm enough.

A western theme-park sounds perfect for this costume too! xD
It's a fun costume to wear so I'm sure you'll have a blast running around in it~~

tip if you ever ride a horse again: Keep your heels down (sorry, its a bad force of habit) :3

awsome shot and cosplay! Denver is the best looking horse for cowboy!america!

(BTW, if you like blue eyed horses, look in my glary. My horse has blue eyes and I have like, 10 photos of him)

Haha, ahh thanks! It was a trip just to get on this thing and I don't ride...but I'll try to keep that in mind if I ever find myself on a horse again. xD

I thought Denver was perfect~~ and he's so pretty.

(Oh, yes I see that! My friends and I had no idea horses could have blue eyes, we seriously thought they were brown/black...we had never seen one with blue eyes so we just assumed. )

It's just the way I stuck it in the wig, and a bobby pin sort of keeps it up a little bit. It also depends how much I tilt my head. xD
