NickerDoodles: The Good Old Days

A comic by Melanie Eberhardt.

Melanie explains: “I’ve been thinking a lot about the passing of time, reflecting on days gone by. Admittedly I’ve been a bit maudlin lately. I’ve also been following the BLM auction and several FB pages that cover wild mustang herds in our national parks. Put these thoughts in a blender, hit puree and here’s a new NickerDoodle about ‘the good old days.'”


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.
