D’Notte is a rather mangled version of the Italian ‘Of Night’ and she was named for the both the deep blue color and the way the silver stencils mimicked the moon.

Midnight Wish and Zodiac’s Curse were also inspired by the night sky, although I think Zodiac pulls it off the best of the three.

This little gal is a flat out decorator horses and something of a rarity. Most of the time my fantasy critters are based on the real thing (even if the real thing happens to be a different species, or a rock), but this little gal was just ‘these colors would look good together.’

Stencil horses were my early version of doodle ponies, I suppose.
