This is the Starcatcher that I won as a raffle. I wish I include these into my Western story that has a lot of stars for characters but that's okay (especially some broken ones).
Anyway, I think the horse is a boy? or a girl?
The star is definitely a boy, name is Wally and is dorky but in a funny way. He's always trying to make the horse laugh and have fun but is dealing with a tough crowd. The horse is serious and takes life in a serious way but every once in a while Wally really makes the horse laugh. Mission accomplished for a day. Wally is always dressing up into funny 'outfits' and talking in funny voices or sounds, did somebody say, "Bwark!"? Unfornately he can't usually go far for his stuff, so he makes do with what he can, usually paper bags, baskets, pumpkins, tree bark, or whatever he can get! The ones that the horse really likes, will be carried around for a while over the bubble, or sometimes when the star goes back into the bubble, the bags and things get stuck over it.
Why is the horse so serious? That is a story for another day, just know the horse is searching and searching and feels sorry for the stars that are broken that the horse passes along the way knowing there is nothing to be done, searching. . . to be continued.
I got the starcatcher from
Please do not take, it's an original character (almost). If you want one, join their group and read the rules please (or at least skim them).
