Fawnling Characteristics by Ehetere Fawnling Characteristics by Ehetere
This is a closed breed. They are not free to create, designs must come through me or breedings.

:iconfawnlings:

Variations

Males
Stags are typically the flashier of the species: they have longer, thicker hair, grow beards, and can be tuftier than females. Their horns are both larger and more impressive, as they are more frequently used in tussles over does and territory. They are also larger, with more height and bulk than the smaller daintier females.

Females
Does are easily distinguishable from mature stags by more than just size. Usually far more hairless, only some does grow horns which are typically much smaller and most are only single pronged. It is not considered feminine to grow horns as a doe in the wild, and those who do are often shunned or considered less attractive for it. They also have larger ears than stags, and are thought to be the swifter of the two sexes.

Can they be heavy as well? Like with normal Fawnlings?

The HARPG/OC fawnlings typically have less variation, as they were crossed with Arabian horses in their heritage ;)

I think Adelig would look gorgeous as a heavy boy...

 No, but the non-Western Isles ones have a lot of Arabian in them ;) Anything that is heavier than Arabian (which are very lightly boned both stallions and mares) would probably be not possible.

one more question, would a fawnling breaking their horns hurt them?? if so how much?

Sorry for the bother ^^

You'll have to double check me on this one (I'm not an antler expert) but assuming they were not in velvet (when damaging them really, really hurts) the impact would be jarring no doubt and could hurt the neck since it would take some force to snap them, but it wouldn't respond in the same way that say snapping a lag would. If it snapped from the base (highly unlikely) it would probably hurt like kingdom come, but otherwise the impact would hurt more than the snapping itself I would imagine.

I love the breed! Can't wait to get my first fawnling. I have a question about the manes, though. I don't particularly care for the long manes. Can the manes vary in length naturally? I'd like my character to have no mane at all if that's possible, for that sleek look, more like a deer than a horse. :meow: If not, that's perfectly fine, too. Just a suggestion.

The manes definitely do vary in length, you can also get a stag with particularly sharp antlers to help your char chop it to any length as well, so he'd be rouched and need to have it recut when it grew back :)

Ehetere, does there have to be only one antler or can there be a set of two? *Curious*

All of their horns will come from one base in the center of their foreheads, but they may be a single prong/horn or split in two prongs/horns :)

just saying. but with the backs the way they are, they're gunna need breast plate/collar whatever they're called thingers to keep the saddles from sliding off.

Aye, though they're dropping their hips a little bit from the pose I've drawn them in. They should have a topline something between TBish and Arabish when they're standing square.
