Just when you thought that Second Life was only for playing dress-up with your avatars… ABC goes and introduces this as a fun little kick off that leads up to our 2021 Anniversary Party. A chance to play dress-up with your horses, ponies and mules too!

Get out those bonnets, get out those top hats… You think a rose creates a suave Sir to woo the Ladies? Well heck, give him two!

It’s time to get those creative gears grinding. Go to any Auction House to Register for a random spot to setup (60 prims or less) a horse, a pony, or a mule looking oh so dapper and cool. Just make sure to use at least 2 ABC Optional Accessories and then after that you can put any spin you want on that ride.

Don’t worry though, if you aren’t quite as interested in playing dress-up with your little darlings… but still want to be involved, then Register to vote! You can’t vote without Registering… and people can’t win if you don’t vote! ABC Needs your input and as a special treat, even voters can win! Yaaaay! ! ! Who doesn’t like winning?
