dear oYo family,
We all were in shock after the terror attack of Manchester. Especially the fact that many young people and even kids were innocent victims made us very sad. Alfredo was the one that did express his feelings quickly by making a special coat for the oYo Horses that we released as special edition in order to give a visible sign against terror and violence, and of course to raise some funds to express our support for all survivors, their families and the people that were involved to save and heal the wounds of the attack.
We are overwhelmed from the result of the campaign: The sales of the Limited editions horses, the auctions of the OOAK and several breedables that were donated and the many donations we collected in the donation boxes was a big surprise for all of us.
The Arabian horses took to the voting platform for all the breeders to judge just who their favourite was. We had a record number of votes for this round with the full results as follows:
1st - White Arabian = 49 points.
2nd - Silver Arabian = 35 points.
3rd - Black Arabian = 32 points.
4th - Brown Arabian = 23 points.
5th - Beige Arabian = 14 points.
So we have an outright winner way out in front with alot of love for that White Arabian coat and not much between second and third. Maybe you missed out and your vote could have changed things, well make sure you vote for the current horses on display over at the reception area.
The appaloosas were the next of the horse coats to line up for the voting and its no surprise to see the top spot has been taken by one of the leo-appy coats as they have been adored by so many people since they came along.
The results are as follows:
1st - Leo-Black Appaloosa = 48 points.
2nd Leo-White Appaloosa = 33 points.
3rd - Chestnut Appaloosa = 14 points.
4th - Black Appaloosa = 13 points.
5th - White Appaloosa = 10 points.
6th - Leo-Beige Appaloosa = 6 points.
7th - Sand Appaloosa = 2 points.
So nice to see all of the coats taking at least a couple points but there are a couple of clean favorites of these appaloosas that’s for sure with a huge difference between 2nd and 3rd on the points tally.
We carry on with the Ombre coats now.
We set up another round of the bear coats to continue to find the search for your number one and the results were as follows:
1st - Black/Grey/Orange Bear = 30 points
2nd - White/Black Bear = 21 points
3rd - Black/Grey/Yellow Bear = 14 points
4th - Ice Bear = 13 points
5th - Orange Bear = 11 points
- White/Beige Bear = 11 points
7th - White/Brown Bear = 8 points
A front runner for clear favourite there but 3rd and 4th were so close with a tie for 5th as well. Its all to play for again as we have more bears for you to choose from so pop over and cast your votes
Rainbow Saber Results
We put the rainbow Sabers under the spotlight and opened up the voting for everyone. The results were quite surprising considering the first place here only finished 4th on the colored Saber coat voting and 2nd place from the colored voting was last here!
The full results are as follows:
1st - PurpleDark Rainbow = 24 points.
2nd - Cardinal Rainbow = 18 points.
3rd - Peach Rainbow = 16 points.
4th - NightSkye Rainbow = 12 points.
5th - Baby Blue Rainbow = 11 points.
5th - Emerald Rainbow = 11 points.
5th - PinkPride Rainbow = 11 points.
8th - Dark Grey Rainbow = 5 points.
3 all sharing 5th place and the points very tightly spread out shows those coats appeal to everyone is different ways.
Bear Voting has now opened.
We kicked off the voting for the Bears last week with a selection of Original and newer coats on display to choose from. We had a clear winner from the off a very popular choice and a very realistic coat while there was a battle with only a point in it for 3rd and 4th. The results were:
1st - Black Bear = 32 points
2nd - Light Beige Bear = 20 points
3rd - Dark Brown Bear = 18 points
4th - Beige Bear = 17 points
Gray Bear = 17 points
6th - Bright Bear = 6 points
7th - Light Brown Bear = 5 points
8th - Brown Bear = 2 points
It’s very close between 2nd and 5th place but no mistaking who is king of this round of honey pot lovers. We have more bears ready to pose for your votes right now so pop over to the reception area and cast your vote for your favourite.
The snowflakes took centre stage for the next round of horse voting. Showcasing all 6 coats including those special offsprings but which made the top of the tree?
1st - Dawn Snowflake = 37 points
2nd - Nymph Snowflake = 29 points
3rd - Black Snowflake = 22 points
4th - Onyx Snowflake = 18 points
5th - Dravite Snowflake = 14 points
6th - Beige Snowflake = 8 points
So the 2 special coats took the top 2 but one of the original coats snuck in at 3rd. What will we see next?
The stunning and very colorful Ombres took to the stage for voting this last week and we had a great turn out of people voting for their favourites. We had a tie for second place as well but an outright winner.
The results are as follows:
1st - Blue Ombre = 30 points
2nd - Green Ombre = 24 points
Purple Ombre = 24 points
4th - Red Ombre = 17 points
5th - Yellow Ombre = 16 points
6th - Pink Ombre = 6 points
Seems Pink was not making the boys wink with those results but a battle between red and yellow for 4th and 5th, who knows maybe we need an Orange Ombre then.
Our Arabians are available now for voting.
Next up for the Sabers on the voting blocks were the rest of the coats (not including colored or rainbows). A massive 10 sabers showed us what they were made of as people turned out in great numbers to vote this week. Sadly we had one coat that finished last that failed to get any votes at all.

1st - 3 Color Saber = 33 points
2nd - Liver Dark Saber = 27 points
3rd - Red Saber = 18 points
4th - Black Saber = 15 points
