This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
-Introduction-

Hey simmers,
This is my first upload to MTS and I thought what better than some recolors of Dragon Slave's awesome basic horse mesh (it really is lovely, isn't it?). I have recolored it before and I have found it's a really rewarding practice. I'm very happy to share these two appaloosas with you; I think they turned out quite nicely!

-Blood Bay Appaloosa-

The base for this coat recolor was made by DS (the blood bay color). I searched for appaloosa recolors via google and found a horse that looked something sort of like this:





So I drew on the white portions with the spots to try and recreate him.

-Dalmation Appaloosa-

Funny title, but they really do resemble Dalmatians. I thought maybe the mane should be black, but after finding images of horses like this one, 90% of them had solid white manes:



-Both recolors shown together-



-Reqs & Whatnot-

(a) I have all Expansion Packs; However, Dragon Slave's mesh is base game compatible, so I don't see why recolors wouldn't be also.

(b) You will need to grab Dragon Slave's basic horse mesh if you don't already have it. There should be a link attached to this post.

(c) I have included a link attached to this post for my "Paint" recolors of this same mesh. Check it out if you're interested

-Conclusion-

I'm happy to share these with you! I hope you find a good use for them

Wat is it? A decoration or a real live horse? And is it only the recoulers off the horse or even the horse itself? (do you understand me? I'm sorry :+)

DragonSlave's (famous) horse is technically a decorative object, but that doesn't really describe how beautiful/realistic her horse meshes look!

So yes, you will need the original mesh for these recolors to show. There is a link to it on the Download page for these Appaloosa recolors- which are wonderful BTW!

("Beck" also made a intractable/ride-able version of DragonSlave's amazing horse that's also lurking around this site someplace...)

@Pomerani & @sims2ultralover5
The zip contains two "recolors" of Dragon Slave's mesh here at MTS (link is included in the post). As Zirconia Wolf has mentioned, you will need the mesh for these recolors to show.

There are in-game pictures attached as thumbnails to the post, if the preview pictures are making things unclear for you.

Enjoy, and thanks to all for the comments.
Bowties are cool.

Good golly, I now need to go re-download that mesh (It got purged in a purge when I felt a need to "clean house.") One of my horses is a bay appaloosa and now I want him in my game. These are very nice recolors. Great job, and thanks so much for deciding to share! :D

These are very pretty - in fact if you were to put the preview pics in a nice picture mesh you could share them here as paintings for our sims' walls

@Katie..Sorry, but Dragon Slave has yet to release any animated meshes.. We are all hoping that she will one day! For now..they remain as statues..but with a mixture of the right poses, you can use them for stories

@leesester..thank you! I'm thinking about it.. O.o

@ohbehave..hehe thank you very much! i'm happy to share them!
