Note of warning! I am graduating from college and
moving in May. Sorry for any delays!
It's already APRIL!!! Too late for an April Fool's, but I'm doing something a little special anyway. If you have random racing-type sketches or pictures lying around that don't really fit anything, or came too late for what you meant to enter them in, consider them entries for this month! Don't worry about a strange background, or rider, or what kind of tack (even medieval knight armor) just enter them in the closest race (or toss them my way in a note, and I'll find a good spot for them). Just put "April Fool's" in the note/title and it's good to go!
For themes, if a theme is wanted and a new picture is in the works, think of "April showers bring May flowers" and bring on the light rain, the sunny-cloudy days, and abundant flowers, flowers (and grass) everywhere.
Trees are leafy and in bloom, so I suspect you could even have
showers of flowers instead of rain! ^^ The tracks will be alternately muddy and dry, and there is still the possibility of patches of snow and crocus hiding in the woods or under trees. I hope you enjoy!
This is how to ENTER
