NickerDoodles: Bossy Mare’s ‘Buck’it’ List

Bossy Mare is back! She has a list and you better pray your name isn’t on it!

You may recognize Bossy Mare from previous NickerDoodles (this one kind of says it all). Her character is inspired by cartoonist Melanie Eberhardt’s real life alpha pasture overlord, Goodbye Girl.


Bet you can tell which one is the gelding and which is the mare.

So what has Her Royal Bossiness been up to lately?

unnamed1Yup, sounds about right. Thanks for sharing, Melanie. Go Riding!

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.
