Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've always wanted to have an Epona of my own as her unusual coloring is beautiful and she is a strong, brave horse.
With the Pets expansion released, I finally got to experiment.
After many tweakings to get the colors right, I present to you Epona.
Her coloring can also be seen in Majora's Mask, but the picture I used to replicate her was from Ocarina of Time.
I based her form on a draft horse as she looks like she may be fully or part Clydesdale.
I hope you enjoy my first upload and if you like this please comment.
Thanks!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Great job! It woulda been good as well to base her from Twilight Princess as the game has much more details in the characters, but still its awesome!

Wow, thank you all for the wonderful, supportive comments! I really feel quite humbled by your praise. I realized one day that I really wanted Epona in my game so I started to tweak...and tweak and tweak. I finally was happy with her appearance and uploaded it to my Sims 3 Studio. After getting positive feedback there, I decided to take a risk and go through the process of uploading here. I am so happy that my risk was not mistaken

My apologies that the saddle is not completely like the original, it's difficult to get the coloring right considering the original saddle was quite different.

I might try the Twilight Version of Epona next, but for now, I think this version will do. Thank you all again so much! <3
