Personality>> Ailsa is something else. She tries to open with a joke every time she meets someone, probably just to avoid any awkward situations. Outwardly, she seems pretty tough. She's a little hard to get close to her, but once you do, she'll do everything in her power to help you out with whatever she can.

Appearance>> She likes to keep her red hair out of the way, so she usually braids it. If not braided, she wears it in a bun or ponytail. Her skin is pale, dotted here and there with freckles. She has big green eyes and a bright smile. For her clothes, she'll wear anything that's comfortable, and usually something she's willing to get messy. Between the horses and the art, she's usually got some kind of dust on her.She likes to wear makeup that brings out her best features, and always wears pink lipstick. Even though she's had her prosthetic for years, she sometimes still has to use her cane on bad days.

Medical History>> Lost her leg in an accident at the age of 23, also suffered a few broken ribs. Has a history of depression and anxiety.
Full History>> Ailsa grew up on a farm outside of Dumfries, Scotland. She was always only a few steps behind her older brother, Will. From the age of two, she was riding, and by the time she was ten, she was competing in show jumping.
When she was 23, she was taking art classes online so she could get a degree without leaving the happy comfort of her parents' farm. However, that was put on hold for a while when the barn caught fire due to the carelessness of a hired worker. The whole family rushed to save the horses. Ailsa was holding on to one of their larger horses when the animal panicked, knocking her off her feet. Part of the building fell on her, crushing her leg beyond repair.
She woke up in the hospital and started a year of depression and hopelessness. It was a struggle to re-learn how to walk, but finally she pulled out of the depression and even started taking classes again. By the time she had her degree, she insisted on moving out. She wanted a fresh start. Her brother and her parents were so against it that they ended up having a falling out. Ailsa took everything she had and moved to America.
She heard Blue Ridge was hiring an art teacher and did some research. The school looked good enough for her and her horse to move in, not to mention her precious dog. She applied for the job and was pleasantly surprised to learn that she got it.
Pet Name>> Ziegler
Registered Name>> Gray Shultz
Breed>> Doberman Pinscher
Personality>> Ziegler is a quiet, well-behaved dog. He knows how to sit, speak, and play fetch. Ailsa keeps him around to provide emotional support, even though he isn't a prescribed emotional support animal. He likes to play, but he seems to like cuddling even more. His favorite thing is to sleep on the bed with Ailsa.
History>> He was born in America. Ailsa's brother bought him from a breeder when he was just a puppy. He wanted to get her a large, intimidating dog that would actually be very sweet to her. It turned out to be the right thing to do; the sight of a black and tan puppy made her feel better every day. As he grew, she taught him tricks. He got used to sharing the bed with her. She hadn't bothered to register him until they moved to America together.
