Pencil, 8”X6”

A pencil sketch commission I recently finished of the beautiful paint horse, Winn! He’s a regal fellow with a supreme sense of humor.

The piece looks a little softer and smoother in person. My camera nearly had a heart attack trying to capture the softness of the piece and settled instead on sharpening every pencil stroke.

However, I am still pleased as punch! Winn’s owner was very happy, gave me a hug, and is having the original framed to put on Winn’s wall of ribbons and accomplishments in her house.

I’m proud to announce last week I became a first-time horse owner of a 9yo unregistered gelding, Dreamer! I am beyond ecstatic and I cannot wait to start my journey with this very special guy.

I am currently focusing on getting him up to weight, his shots UTD, feet trimmed and ground work to establish leadership and trust (its going very well so far!) I would like to then save up for a DNA test and register him. My goal is to start competing in gaming, cows or trails, whichever he should excel in: but most importantly to give him a job, something he hasn’t had much of. It will be our first time competing which is exciting! He will also be joining me when I settle on a training internship or equine related college. He’s going to be a busy boy, which is good!

With that said…Dreamer is the greatest gift I have ever received and my soul does a little happy dance when I’m out at the barn. His personality is quiet, brave and he loves to follow me around. I am so lucky to be his forever home and I will see to it he wants for nothing the rest of his days. <3
