bursting and berried


Just thought I'd share a really bad pic of one of my Carbon Rili fems that is so berried, her belly is practically dragging the ground! Oh yeah, she has a saddle, too.

Thanks. I knew this was going to be "oversized" because the saddle was down her back!

Yep, I've got a blue velvet that drags her eggs along the sand. No idea how she carries them all! She's been berried like that twice too!
