The desert, a vast and uncontrolled place that surely left him to go in numerous ways and not one was the right way. Was there even a right way on traveling? The brute snorted, ears forward as he continued to walk through the sand, muscles flexing underneath his gray-white pelt, tail flicking from one side to the other. It was surely hot like it has been the last several days he had found himself wandering in this area. Why did he even go out there? The thought of just running ahead and hoping there was more green pastures on the other side? Heh, that's a joke. Now he had no idea where he had come from or which direction he was heading. 

Sand, sky, sand, sky. Randomly a bird or two. Caspian snorted, shaking his head as a light groan came from his throat, muscles quivering as he came to a stop, looking around to figure out what to do. God, he hated feeling hopeless. This wasn't like him at all. Once he had it all, a herd, a mate. Somehow it all disappeared on him and once again he was wandering the area all by himself once more. Heh, maybe it had to be that way? The stallion pawed lightly at the sand underneath him with his right hoof, snorting and bellowing lightly. This really sucked. It caused the male to lower himself down against the hot sand and rolled around in it, a faint groan escaped from his throat. This wasn't helping him much either, but what else could he do try to stay cool in this heat?

The male groaned, getting up and shook himself off. His ears flattened a bit against his skull as he looked around, walking slowly through this endless hell. Tail whipping back and forth slightly before he found a slight shrub, which he lipped and poked it lightly with his nose, a faint nicker escaping from his throat. It really had been a long time since he had seen someone else, company. It caused a sad expression to appear on his face as he lifted his head up, snorting once more - tossing his head around a bit before going into a light canter.

The desert seemed endless. Dune after dune, no matter where she walked or how far she traveled, she never seemed to get anywhere. It was a maze, of sorts. It messed with your mind, got you all twisted around until you couldn't tell which direction was north and which was south. Without proper navigational skills, it was nigh impossible to escape the desert.

Or so, she used to think.

An unfortunate storm had separated Sarita from her herd nearly a year ago. She could still remember every detail—the howling winds, the sand that stung her eyes, the screams of terror as the horses were engulfed in a sandstorm. She was younger and less worldly, and her way of dealing with one of the worst sandstorms the desert had ever seen was to simply...run away. At the time it had seemed like a smart idea. But in the end, all it did was isolate her. She'd searched at first for her herd, dutifully checking every dune, every oasis she could find, but after several months, she had had to admit defeat. If anyone from her small herd was still alive, they certainly weren't in this part of the desert anymore.

In fact, if anyone was alive... Sarita had not seen another horse for nearly as long as she'd been wandering the desert. It was a rarity to come across others in this harsh, unforgiving landscape, yet the desert seemed unusually barren. She had almost forgotten what it was like to see another horse. The wanderess had roamed alone for the last few months, becoming acquainted only with the sound of her own footsteps. Subconsciously, she had given up on seeing another horse. Perhaps it was not meant to be.

The black mare yawned as she stood atop a small crest, her thick black mane and tail teased by the gentle breeze. Her dark brown eyes were half-closed to keep the sun's powerful rays at bay, yet nothing could protect her body, which felt as if it were smoldering. The black fur seemed to suck in the heat of the sun, setting her aflame. It didn't bother her too much, though. She was desert-born and bred. She had lived with the heat her whole life. The warmth didn't bother her. In fact, it made her feel a bit drowsy, and she closed her eyes for a few seconds, relishing the beautiful day.

What sounded like thumps in the sand caused her to open her eyes again. Thumps in the sand? The sound startled her only because it was so unusual. She was used to the hissing of the sand and the whistles of the wind, but certainly not what sounded like heavy hoofsteps. Turning her dished head curiously, the Arabian surveyed a grey blob that was cantering. She squinted with disbelief. It was cantering! It was a horse, and one she had never seen before. Her ears pricked, her muscles tended, her tail raised, as she watched this enchanting new figure from atop her vantage point on the dune. Would the horse see her?

The stallion's ears remained perked forward as his eyes focused on the endless sand in front of him, snorting a bit as his hooves carried him over this forsaken land. Sometimes it always surprised him how well they can survive out here the way they do, but they have evolved, to ensure their survival was concrete. Muscles flexing underneath the gray-dappled like pelt as the cream mane and tail swayed behind him like flags as he started to pick up the pace up a slight dune before coming to a stop, shaking his head a bit in slight frustration. Storms came like horrible nightmares and always seemed to ruin things, which had left him on his own for quite a few years now.

The male groaned and snorted a bit as he lowered his head down, pawing at the sand with his right forehoof before shaking his head, eyes scanning the horizon a bit before looking in the other directions before coming to a stop. The stallion's nostrils flared as he tried to take in the air, figuring out what he was actually looking at. There was a black form of sorts quite a bit a ways but yet able to see that it was something for sure for nothing he knew was out here that was pure black like that. Caspian shifted his weight a bit, hesitant at first for there was surely some kind of a trick here, right? After being out here for so long things just blended in and didn't look the same and finally supposedly seeing something now? It didn't make sense to the horse at all.

The brute snorted, pawing at the ground in slight disgust at the thought of his mind playing tricks on him as he bolted a bit further up the done and then over it as if it was nothing. There was no way there could be a horse out here, not this far out in the dunes where even himself was having issues of trying to find some relief from the sun. The male's tail flicked back and forth before turning his head and looked over in the direction of the black form once again, taking a deep sigh before looking ahead of him. What to do, what to do, indeed.

Rather it was curiosity or Caspian really lost his mind, the stallion made a nickering neigh, rearing up a bit as he did so. Well, if it was just a mirage, least no one out here would think of him crazy, right? Not seeing any other creature as much as he did these past few weeks, it wouldn't be embarrassing. Though what if there was a possibility it was another horse? Would it be someone from his herd? No, there was no way. As far as he recalled, he was the only one who was able to deal with such a harsh environment as he had come from another place before. Being tossed out here like trash was something that the herd didn't expect but it had happened. Now alone, deep down in his heart, the feeling of not being alone was surely starting to make it ache.

Her head tilted curiously as she watched the grey horse plow on through the sand. The stranger obviously had not yet noticed her, or if it had, it was doing an awfully good job at ignoring her. Sarita trotted forward a few steps, her hooves disturbing puffs of sand. Stretching her neck forward curiously, she pricked her ears, watching as the horse turned in her direction.

There was no way that the horse could not have seen her. She stuck out from the golden sand like ash in snow. With a soft snort, she tossed her head, mane flying every which way. She debated whether or not to get closer. The horse didn't look like one of her old herdmates, but from this distance, how could she be sure? Flipping her tail restlessly, Sarita was undecided on what to do. She could approach this stranger, who she was pretty certain existed, and risk either a benefit or danger, or she could wait and see what would happen.

She chose to wait and see. And what she saw next startled her. Why the grey horse felt so compelled to rear up and neigh, she did not know. And why she chose to let out a shrill whinny on return was even more baffling. Perhaps it was months of solitude in the same golden desert, driving her slowly but surely mad. Perhaps it was curiosity. Or perhaps it was a drive to entice the stranger closer. Whatever the reason, Sarita whinnied again, tossing her head. Her hooves slid in the sand as she shifted, tail swishing eagerly, eyes alight with curiosity.

The stallion snorted a bit before starting to slowly walk away a bit before coming to a complete stop. Was it the wind or was there a storm coming? That noise. It was a shrill, a neigh, a nicker? It was a lot of noise for sure and it caused him to look over in the direction of where the black looking form was. No, there was no way and surely it seemed closer then before, didn't it? How, how was that possible. Could it really be real that this was an actual horse way out here with him?

Caspian snorted, tossing his head around before doing a light canter over towards the black form, tail rose up and swayed back and forth with his movements. The male arched his neck a bit, nostrils flaring as he lightly nickered as his eyes watched the form closely, trying to make sense of what was in front of him. His heart was racing with slight excitement and anxious of the situation. Deep down he was hoping, pleading to be another but yet being so far out here for so long, he truly felt like he was going mad.

The stallion moved a bit closer even more, coming a stop a few feet away from the ebony mare. Was this real? Was there really another horse out here with him? Caspian tilted his head from one side then the other, nickering a bit as his upper lip quivered slightly. The male's ears remained perked forward, muscles quivering underneath his gray dappled-looking pelt as he shifted a bit in the sand, trying to show that he wasn't a threat but curious.

Her ears pricked eagerly as she surveyed the grey form, who at first hesitated. Was the other horse frightened or just unsure? Sarita tossed her head and waited impatiently to see what the grey would do, her nostrils flaring as she attempted to distinguish the new horse's scent from the earthy, dry scents of the desert. Swishing her long tail again, she took a few more steps forward, coming to a halt at the edge of her mound of sand. Pricking her ears again, she waited to see if the horse would approach.

She stayed still as the stallion moved closer and closer, eventually coming to a halt in front of her. Her dark eyes surveyed him curiously. He was a horse unlike any she'd ever met. He was a bit more heavily built than the horses in her last herd, who were often more leggy and sleek than this stallion. His odd, rippled mane caught her attention. She'd never seen anything like it. No horses she'd ever met had curly hair. Stretching her muzzle forward to sniff curiously at the stud, she tilted her head with wonder. The first horse she'd seen in nearly a year, and unlike any other horse she'd ever met.

Withdrawing a bit, Sarita flashed him a puzzled look. What was a horse like him doing in her desert? He was a far cry from the sleek Arabians and Baladi horses that she was better acquainted with. And he seemed...odd, to be in this habitat. It was as if it did not naturally suit him like it did her. But there would be time for questions later. She had to restrain herself from babbling incoherently in her excitement, and instead flashed him a charming, impish grin. "Hello," she nickered to the dappled stallion, eyes glimmering as she watched him. Her voice sounded foreign even to her own ears; she had had no use for it for so long that she hardly remembered the sound of it, and it did startle her. Nonetheless, at least now she had someone to talk to.
