Melanie Eberhardt’s latest comic is inspired by her bossy mare, who has claimed the water trough as “hers” much to the dismay of her pasture mates.
Melanie explains, “I think everyone is ready for a break from the heat. My horses have been emptied their 150 gallon water tub every day attempting to stay cool. So here is a new NickerDoodle inspired by the dreadful heat and shared with the hope that we all get to enjoy cooler weather in the coming weeks!”
I am an artist in Atlanta. When I’m not painting, I’m riding horses. I have 3 retired Arabians and a snotty pony at home. They keep me on my toes. Three years ago I bought a young OTTB straight off the track. My new fella, Bubba, and I are learning dressage. Sadly, I’m the weak link on Team Bubba, but I learn something every time we ride so it’s all good. I started NickerDoodles to document the horsey antics that abound within my world. I’m very fortunate to balance my life with things that I love – painting and riding – and NickerDoodles gives me a forum to share. If we’re not laughing at our horses and ourselves, we’re probably crying. I prefer to laugh! I hope everyone enjoys NickerDoodles.
