Okay so... this has been weighing on me the last couple of days so I finally went ahead and did it. I made a new account for my stable that is not a group. I'll be keeping the group open so I can easily organize art from others, but I will be uploading all my horse art on my new account ZyathStablesHQ. If you enjoy my horse artwork, please watch me there!

The reason for this new account is I feel like it's hard to differentiate my kennel hiatus with all the horse artwork I've been submitting lately. I don't want people to think that I'm totally shifting focus, I don't want people reclaiming my dogs, etc.


Zyath Kennels is STILL on hiatus.

I'm not currently doing artwork for my kennel dogs including references, breedings, and shows. I likely won't answer inquiries about my dogs. They're on vacation. xD

Why the hiatus?

I originally took a hiatus due to my summer school getting absolutely crazy. After summer school was over I was on vacation with my boyfriend. Now my Grandma is in a life or death situation after having surgery. I don't think I've cried this hard in a long time over something. I'll be completely honest: DARPG is far more stressful than HARPG for me right now at this point in my life.
I love drawing dogs, and I love all my kennel dogs so much. I love competing with them, I love wracking up titles, and I love all the people. <3 However, I've really been feeling my stable lately due to just how... chill it is. With DARPG I feel pressured to do more realistic pieces, even in my RNG entries my big group Huskies are top notch. In DARPG I have so many dogs to show, so many disciplines, I have references to do, pedigress to figure out, point systems to add up... I just don't need that kind of stress right now.
With my stable I feel like I can experiment and play and draw derpy looking horses without people being disappointed in me. I feel like if I suddenly started drawing all chibis in my kennel people would stop watching me because my kennel art used to be so awesome. People probably already HAVE stopped watching me because of all the RNG stuff. My kennel has totally been eating up all my time that I could be spending with my horses, so I'm enjoying the change of pace, the change of style, and the different atmosphere.

When will the hiatus be over?

My hiatus will continue till I have a verdict over my Grandma. Everyone in my family is hoping she gets better, but right now it's pretty up in the air. She isn't getting any better but isn't getting any worse. If she doesn't get any better (and goes downhill), then the hiatus will expand to give me some time to grieve if worse comes to worse.
I really hope everyone will stick with me and respect my desire to draw something else during this really stressful time. I know that it's my account and I can draw whatever I want, but I've built up a fan base over 1 subject and I don't want to bore you guys or let you down.
Thanks guys! :heart:

No problem! He's probably the one I'd be interested in a slot in but I'll have to take a look at the others and their genotypes.
