Alright guys, I figure you're all due for an update on how things are going over here. Fair warning, life kinda sucks right now so this entry isn't exactly gonna be all sunshine and roses. 

I actually don't remember how much I've told you all, I've been kinda absent from DA for a long time now... 

A year ago (feb 2nd) my little brother passed away. It was completely unexpected and it's been hard without him here. About 6 weeks later we lost my great grandfather to cancer. While I wasn't super close to him, he was still my family and I still loved him a lot. I graduated high school in June, and started college in September. The college I was at turned out to be a horrible idea and I wish I'd applied to my dream school instead. I stayed local because A. it was more affordable, and B. My then boyfriend was going to community college and I didn't want to leave him behind. So I dropped out of school there and started at community college this semester. I also lost my mentor/veterinarian in late October, and another close family friend the day before Thanksgiving. 

Early December I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism. Which basically means my body is attacking my thyroid, causing a severe lack of energy, joint pains, 'brain fog' etc, among other health issues. It means that I might never be able to have biological children (something I've always wanted to be able to do), will likely always have joint pain and other issues like that, and will be on medication for the rest of my life. A lot of people with the disease cannot continue in the workforce because it's so hard to actually get your health back once you've been diagnosed. As a couple of you know, I had/have plans to attend veterinary school, and the idea that I may never be healthy enough to actually make it through the very intense schooling kills me. I go to see an Endocrinologist soon to start on medication and figure out a plan to at least improve my health. 

And to top off what has actually been the worst year of my life, my boyfriend of 19 months left me four weeks ago and won't speak to me anymore. He was my best friend for 5 1/2 years and he decided that I was no longer important enough to keep around. I just started talk therapy and am on medication to keep my anxiety at bay, but it only helps so much. 

I will say, however, that ShapeShifter314 has been a huge blessing these past few months, and the past month especially. <3 

So yeah... Life right now really kinda sucks. It's getting better, slowly, but I'm not going to be alright for a very long time. I'm going to try to get back into my artwork as a release soon. I miss you all, and I miss the community we had through the HARPG stuff. 
Hey peeps! :) Life is finally starting to settle back down and I think I may have a little tiny bit of time for HARPG horses again! <3 However, I only want to keep a couple so I'm not as overwhelmed. 

SO: 
ALL Gypsy vanners (except for Sundusk - she's on permanent retirement and is far too old to leave) - FREE to good home
Nordanners - 400:points: or $4usd for RF Locked out of heaven, and 1,000 :points: or $10 for Makiados (Heterozygous Zebra!) 
Georgian Grande's - Face of Boe - FREE
Appy cross - Marengo's last stand - FREE 

Will consider offers on whoever is left except for: Gravity, Sparty, Wolf, and Goldie. 

I'd like to bring in one more Faime before I start drawing again. I'm looking for something with mutations - Peacock or biolume preferred, will consider others. Draft type ONLY. And I would prefer a mare, but would consider a stud as well. Willing to pay in USD as long as it isn't too pricey, and it has a few breeding slots left. Sabino is a bonus! If someone has a Chestnut or sooty buckskin sabino peacock biolume draft mare that they would be willing to part with, I'd be in heaven <3 

Thx peeps! :)

So it's been a while since I updated this...

Hi, I'm Katie! I am 16 years old and a hobby artist, specializing in Digital art.
I'm an active member in the FFA, 4-H and in my school's drama club, and am currently studying Veterinary Medicine through my high school but will be transferring into the art program next year.
My family owns three miniature mares (one of whom is mine!) and a miniature stallion, as well as four cats, a dog, a plethora of chickens and a few rabbits.
My art typically focuses on Equines, but has recently included Dragons and the odd human character. I don't post as often as I'd like, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things pretty soon. :)
