NickerDoodles: Adventures of Fiesty Filly

In Melanie Eberhardt’s latest comic, Fiesty Filly proves that she’s a force to be reckoned with in the pasture–which doesn’t bode well for Sweet Gelding.

Melanie writes, “Many years ago I bred my Bossy Mare. When the filly was old enough to wean, I turned her out with Uncle Sweet Gelding. I thought he’d be a great baby sitter and not be too rough with her. I was certainly caught off guard when she ran him into the ground. Size doesn’t seem to matter in the pasture, its all about attitude!”

About Melanie:

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.
