Group Info

Supernatural water horses intrigue people, and the horse itself was said to have come from water in several mythologies. Some water horses (or horse shapeshifters) are the Kelpie, Hippocampus, Campchurch, nuggle, shoopiltee, njogel, tangi, cabbyl-ushtey, water horse, capall uisge, glashtin, Ceffyl Dŵr, Bäckahästen, the brook horse, nøkken, Nykur, nykur or nennir and the each uisge. The list goes on. Then, there are sea horses (yes, we'll include those) and other ocean themed horses (let your imagination go wild). Here is a group to collect pictures of them and draw some of our own:D

WaterHorses and Unicorn-Club held a joint contest! The theme was "Two Worlds, One Love," and the mission was to display two fantasy equines in love with each other... but separated by water. Think of "The Little Mermaid," but horse-style! The only limitation was that at least one of the horses has to have a horn, and at least one has to be linked to water (e.g. be a hippocampus, a kelpie, etc.).

Yes, submit them to the breed sheet section if you have a breed sheet. character images and portraits can be posted in misc water horses, but it could go in hippocampi since people who are looking might expect to see that kind of creature in that folder. its up to you :)
