This past weekend, while at another show, we all spent some time discussing just how insane some of the things we ask of our horses must seem to them. This of course led to many amusing comments (and some inappropriate ones--in the future look for a comic on 'The Worst Equine Pick up Lines'-- ;) ) and generated a list of horse vocabulary words similar to the one above. Hopefully you're as amused as we were (though that's admittedly going to be tough since we *may* have been sipping some wine while also using awkward voices and imitating what we thought our horses were thinking).

Now here I thought Woody was a pony. This must be the Warmblood? I think Morgane, that my Hackney thought I'd lost my mind when I hooked up my Big English Gig to him. Poor fellow! The Morgan probably thinks I'm certifiable too.

Made me laugh! And loved seeing the picture of your horse, what a charmer!

Bahahaha! Indeed. I am sure they think we are totally stupid.

It's a terrible responsibility to have to take care of your small predator. They have no sense at all. When they see something that would make anyone with any brains want to turn tail and run, they want to stop and stare at it.


Holy Beans it's 2015!

...And I haven't updated this news feed since 2013. Oops. I suppose I'll give you all a brief run down on all the excitement that is my life (I know you are just GIDDY with anticipation). Louis and I are still in the great state of Nevada. Louis is doing well and I am still working on my MBA (very slowly to be sure) and figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. I occasionally worry about that whole growing up thing but figure I've got plenty of time for it to happen. ;) I'm currently teaching and doing dressage training along with some more commercial and freelance graphic/art work. It's been a lot of fun and through this site I've been able to connect with some really great people so cheers to that!

Regarding my horses, The Beastlet (For Willie) turns 5 this summer and we may try for the 5 year-old tests this year. If he's ready then super and if not we will probably push on towards second level. The Paintlet (Major Storm) won the USDF (APHA) All Breed Grand Champion award at PSG last year. I am so proud of him and so grateful to his owner, Michele, for letting me work with him. He did one show at the end of last year at I1 and will continue that this year. If he seems comfortable with it we may push for I2. How far he goes will be entirely based on what he tells me he can handle. If this is his peak than that's fine with me; the little guy has already given me so much more than I could have ever anticipated. Woody, the star of my comics for all intents and purposes, is just as grumpy and food motivated as ever. The little man is still helping people learn the ropes of riding but he is slowing down a bit. As a result he's been enjoying more time in the sunshine and extra cookies.

In line with most New Year cliches I am hoping to make 2015 a banner year and I wish the same for all of you out there taking the time to read this update and my comics. Thank you for all your support and helping me share my work with equestrians near and far.
