Full Personality:Turtledove is a kind horse that couldn't hurt a soul. She is happy and nice to almost everyone that she meets, and she has a very calm demeanor to her. She is a horse that almost everyone wants to know just because she is fun-loving, but also knows when the right time to be serious is. You could say that she has a leader's personality to her, but she just knows how to think and act quickly, and she knows how to put her feelings aside and do what is best for the others around her. She can be very calm, or she can be very excited and peppy, just depending on the mood that she is in and the type of horse that you are. She isn't the best at fighting because she doesn't like to hurt others, but she will fight if she has to protect herself or someone she loves.

History: California was born in a group of two foals. She came first and her sister was the last. They grew up never leaving each other's side. They would play and laugh together with their mother tagging along behind. It was a happy life for the two of them. Happy until the one terrible day that was the last time that they were still together.
Obviously their father wanted their mother to die. And so, he came after them. He found the sisters chasing each other in a large field. Their mother grazed not far away from them in the shadow of the trees. The large, black stallion moved quietly through the shadows, making his way to wards the mother of Cali and her sister. Several long moments passed. The fillies continued playing and their mother continued to keep an eye out for predators. Little did she know, though, that the biggest predator that she would ever know was standing less than twenty feet away.
The dark figure moved silently amongst the trees, closing in on his target. Twenty feet. Fifteen feet. Ten- CRACK! The snap of a twig gave him away. The sisters and their mom bolted off, leaving their father and ex-mate in the dust. He was lucky, though, because not long after the girls and their mother fled the meadow, there was a cougar attack. The cougar had been looking for some easy prey, and the fillies and their mother were the perfect meal. The cougar decided to kill the mother first, for the foals would come back to her, looking for shelter.
The three ran along, sprinting past the cougar's tree. As soon as they had past his tree, the cougar leapt. He landed directly on the mother's back, startling her and bringing her to the ground. She struggled for only a minute more before screaming out to her babies, telling them to run. The sisters, who had stopped running, wanting their mother to get up and come with them, took one last glance at her and then they took off. They knew later, that that had been the death of their mother.
The sisters wandered alone for some time after that. They needed shelter, and they needed protection. It wouldn't be that long before they could live on their own, finding a new herd, but until then, they didn't know what to do. As they were walking along the side of a mountain, though, the land began to cave in. A few seconds later, California turned around, and her sister was nowhere to be seen. These events have scarred her for life, and even though she tries to hide it, she always feels some pain at the knowledge that her mother is dead and her sister could be dead. With this knowledge, she roams the lands, looking for a place of comfort and a home and family that could be forever hers.
